Heels eh? That's another one of those fashion things that I avoid, because I think that heels are harmful to the body, and greatly increase the risk of injury to the wearer. And yes, I freely admit to being highly prejudiced against women wearing heels. So if my first impression of a woman is of her wearing heels, she's extremely unlikely to get the opportunity to make a second impression. Life to short. I don't have time to waste developing relationships with people that I have to teach basic life principles to, such as: "don't poison yourself", and "don't set yourself up to be injured".

In my 20's and now, I LOVE that no makeup is (usually) a toxinectomy, healthier for my skin (and eyes, eyelashes, nails, hair, etc.), far more frugal (d'oh) and a time saver, to boot!
Other thoughts or struggles with makeup?

So many people come off as anti makeup, and I admit I tend to dislike it; however, are valid reasons for its use. There are numerous people with scars, birth marks, and more serious disfigurements who are terrified to step foot in public for fear of feeling they are part of some carnival side show. Maybe this does show how shallow society is .... but it is the society we live in.
