27. I like to wear make-up, and I'm a man... so am I being oppressed?
Am I trying to fit some societal expecation of men? Or do I do it because I like it?

Why are some other human beings not allowed to think the same way (ie. woman)?

The pressure of society on people to fit into a stereotypical mold to be accepted is sad, but its not all or nothing. If you like it, wear make up. If you don't, dont.
