So I’m engaged in one of my favorite time-killing activities, i.e., reading beauty blogs written by wealthy, unintentionally pompous older white ladies, because it allows me to lust over high-end beauty products while simultaneously scorning their actual target market. Anyway, one of them posted a totally on-point complaint about how Tom Ford is up his own ass and the names he gives a lot of products in his overpriced beauty line are try-hard and occasionally straight-up misogynistic, although of course she put it much more nicely. The comments to her post includes the following discussion:
As long as we are being honest about Tom Ford I have this to say…. I find him to be incredibly handsome. I also know that he is a gay man. So why does he often show up in ads with equally good-looking women? It seems dishonest to me and frankly “weird”. I think I’m no longer impressed with him.
I think the collection is exquisite. It includes another eye quad called Enchanted, as well as a plum creme shadow and a gorgeous blush. I think the models in his makeup ads are just as beautiful as his products. And I am glad that he is gay because I support gay rights.
straight people, this is why you can’t sit with us
