@vampkat looking back at recent deals, you’re right. Being a dick about makeup brushes is unnecessary. It’s been fairly solid offerings lately. The last few have been pretty “chick stuff” though. With how much morningsave is dominated by this kind of stuff, and how much of it ends up in irks it’s kind a downer to see it on Meh for some of us. Ignore us, we’re just grumpy.
@Oneroundrobb I get it. I complain right next to everyone, but I’m sick of people taking it sexist. I don’t go “great, tools and speakers, it sure is getting manly on this site!”, and I’m sick of seeing double standards. Cranky away, just keep the comments to what you’re complaining about and not about the inherent “sex” the object appeals to. I’ve been with meh when it was woot, and I’m sure women use this site just as much as men do, but men think their wants should outweigh women’s and it’s totally BS. I call it out when I see it because some men don’t even realize they are being misogynistic. The rest? Bugger off.
@therealjrn and you don’t hear me going “this site is getting too manly” when they do tools and such. Stop making it about gender and more about the products. Btw, women shop this site, as I’ve been a woman my whole life and I have been shopping this since it was woot, so they are appealing to EVERYONE, not just your male ego.
is it all men on this site? jeez. so much complaining. this is a good deal for a varied set of brushes. I like the angling since i’m half-blind and have to lean in to the mirror to see my own face without glasses, and this way i won’t poke myself in the eye with a brush when i lean in and its end hits the mirror.
@lwmctz No, men just complain super loud whenever things don’t go their way and it’s about women. Crap on here they don’t like, complain. Crap on here they don’t like that’s aimed towards women, it’s sexist!!! When they sell toys and such they don’t complain “this is a grown up site, why are they selling kinect toys and cars SO MUCH omgggg” because that doesn’t play into their toxic masculinity.
@sammydog01 I do read the comments. Women don’t typically complain about men things being sold, men complain about women things being sold. It’s pretty simple. When something only comes in men sizes, women might go “can’t we get all sizes?” But they don’t go “Omg, more men stuff today, guess this site is catering to men now!”. It’s misogyny and I’ll call it when I see it. You may not even notice it.
@sammydog01 Would you stop debating and just look at what I’m saying? I have no problem with people complaining, I have a problem with the sexism in complaining. Do they complain when there’s three days of kids toys saying “this site is turning into a site for kids, it’s not fair!” no. They don’t. If you are a woman, you should KNOW this happens all the damn time and shouldn’t be arguing with me about the inherent sexism on sites like this.
@sammydog01@vampkat I didn’t make any type of sexist comment. I pointed out prior items and then you decided to troll me. I’m assuming you’re just joshing around having a bit of fun but please stop attacking people for what you think they are thinking.
@sammydog01@therealjrn I didn’t say you said a sexist comment, others are. That’s what this post is about. Men in here commenting complaining about them selling feminine things. I’m not trying to call you a dick or anything, I agree with the original comment and was clarifying what OP was talking about. I’m not attacking anyone in any way (except for the troll, and I just called them a troll).
These honestly looked like a nice gift for my 16yo daughter until I got to the pic of the inside lid of the box. Are these makeup brushes from the 1950’s? WTF. Who thought that was a good idea? Hard pass.
TBH the first time I read it I read ‘em as him. But it’s still not great.
friendly reminder that:
-any gender can use and/or wear makeup
-there are more than two genders
-gender is a social construct anyway
-nothing is inherently gendered
-brushes can be made with animal products
@akadamia indeed, i’m not much of a jerk or a nugget at all. (well, usually anyhow.)
(not that anyone is truly interested, but it was born from a seinfeld episode [“the jerk store”] + the name of my first car [“nugget”]. when signing up for an online game once upon a time, i wanted one or the other but both were taken and thus, Jerk Nugget [you’ll get the most out of it if you read it as a first and last name as opposed to an object] was born.)
