15 biggest beauty turnoffs from real guys

I was on yahoo when I discover this articles and there are so many articles that are on this subject that makes me lol because a lot of these things I do not do but, I can understand for there are women that do these things because this is what they believe what men would want in a woman.

“It gets on my nerves when women take too much time on makeup. You would think after a lifetime they would have the process down to less than 45 minutes!” -Christopher

“If she has to be at work at 6am and uses the hair dryer, it wakes me up. Then, just when I get back to sleep. She is wearing her heels in the bathroom and the kitchen. Click. Click. Can’t you wear slippers?” -Pablo

“I’m picky about oral hygiene – brushing, flossing, mouthwash. She has to brush her teeth before bed and in the morning before we kiss. That extra care once we reach a certain level of intimacy is important.” -Rod

*This is the first man that I have found in the world that is picky about oral hygiene for I met plenty of men that had worse oral hygiene than women.

“I can’t stand when she has wet hair after the shower and lays on my pillow, I usually roll over on the wet spot.” -Jeff

I could not believe there are some women that left their hair wet after a shower don’t they know their hair can tangle that way?
“My wife doesn’t dye her hair often enough. I don’t like to see those dark roots.” -Anonymous

“Certain scents turn me off. I don’t like anything cucumber or vanilla. I’ve told my girlfriend that I like her natural smell better.” -Josh

I wonder what is consider a natural smell? Roses? Tulips? some sort of flower that comes from nature I hope because not wearing a fragrance is a big no in my book. 

“I wish my girlfriend would get a manicure more often instead of doing it herself. She is pretty low-maintenance.” -Shaun

I never though that men were picky on that because I do get manicures every week and I also do my own touch ups at home but, hey some men are different from others.

“I don’t like extensions because when you put your hands in her hair you can feel all the lumps. It might be good to look at but not to touch.” -Robert

Well that gives me more reasons to stick with my natural and grow out my own hair.

“My wife spends 20 minutes after the shower putting on body lotion. Apparently it has to be applied evenly. For me, it is just a time suck.” -R.D.S.

“Those thick eyelashes that women put on are annoying. It makes a woman stick out and people know that they aren’t real. I like a woman who looks nice and natural. Regular people don’t need all those eyelashes.” -Lindsay

“Excessive tattoos. I think inappropriately placed tattoos are a turnoff. No matter how pretty she is. Plus, they are addictive. You get one, you have to have another.” -Anonymous

I hate tattoos, I do not know why people get them.

“I hate hair all over the sink and floor. I wish women would be mindful of how their beauty products and hair can clog up a common space, especially the bathroom.” -Stevie

I do too because that creep me out when people do that mess.

“They don’t put caps back on things or they put it on but they don’t screw it on so when I go get something it spills.” -Connor

“I hate it when women wear any type of fragrance – I like showers.” -Bryan

Men need to be more specific on this one because there are fragrances that are not too strong but soft so, it will not bother you sinuses or whatever it irritates.

“My wife uses scrubs and bath salts in the tub, and the grains never go down the drain. All that oil makes the bath so slippery.” -Darrell

I still find this to be humorous because each man has its own opinion so if I continue to be myself then I will find a man that will love me for me but at least 90% of this stuff I do not do nor have in my on category of beauty so, I might not irritate men so much as other women.

LOL!

A Woman’s Experience

“I am working for the time when unqualified blacks, browns, and women join the unqualified men in running our government.” ~ Cissy Farenthold

 

As a woman, an individual and many other titles I never believed that one’s experience could ever be define by their gender for, a man or women can experience different things in their life depending on their lifestyle.  One’s lifestyle, culture and age makes a difference of what experience they have that can impact the world and/or give a significant effect on the younger generations.  In the matter of the female gender there are three hundred women that have made their mark in history breaking the glass ceiling for others to gain experience and take on roles that could never have been done before.

The experience that some of these truly magnificent women faced were so remarkable and amazing that some experts had stated it was truly legendary.  Some have paved the way for women of future generations to be a individual that was unheard of in the past due to man dominance.  Furthermore some have not seen the appreciation  by younger generations due to the fact lack of interest; the only way one would truly be interested in this if a celebrity mentioned someone like Abigail Adams, Catherina II and, Zoe.

The greatness of some women have gone far back to the Ancient world and are old as the sands of Egypt for the first seen greatness of women was seen in the 12th dynasty when Sebeknefru took the role as Pharaoh of Egypt this remarkable time in the Ancient world pave the way for other female Pharaohs to take the throne.  In her time her father and half-brother had both pass away so, she alone was the closest individual that came to succession at the time allowing her to rule Egypt at the ending of the 12th dynasty.  However, here greatness has long been forgotten by so many whom do not understand what she meant in the history of women; Hatsheput gets the credit of being the first female Pharaoh.

Well women have come a long way since the 17th, 18th, 19th century when those were the dark days in women’s literature for, men felt that women’s literature was inferior than male literature because it did not show any interest in certain subjects fields, for women would talk about their struggles facing their other halves every day, raising children, and the lost of love ones.

I respect women such as Susan B Anthony for she and a few other women done that no woman dare to do which was to break the law by voting for, she felt that women were not being treated equally like men so, her actions changed the constitution which gave women the right to vote in any and every election that the United States goes through depending on the state or the entire nation.

Julia Augusta Agrippina was one who role in the Roman Empire mad a great significance through history for she was the fourth and last wife of Claudius who was generally suspected of poisoning. When her son Nero whom was only sixteen taking the role of Emperor Agrippina first took the attempt to play the role of regent while her son was in power but, soon power generally weakened when her son took full charge of the government.

Queen Elizabeth, Joan of Arc, Golda Meir, and Indira Gandhi are women that I have been given inspiration because of the roles that have taken compare to any other women in the history of feminism.   Joan of Arc and Queen Elizabeth I have crashed the glass ceiling that made the way for other in the fields of Politics, Religion and Military.  Joan of Arc was more of a woman of great significance for she alone led the French army during the hundred year’s war when it was a time period where only men could lead an army but, Joan changed that so women like Elizabeth P. Hoisington and Louise Wilmot to pass on influence to others.  Queen Elizabeth I is another notable cause for when she took the throne of England at a state which is was in great turmoil for, greater powers such as France and Spain used it as a weakened pawn that religious discord that plagued the land.  Queen Elizabeth rule alone for half a century in her time the love for England and its people was so legendary so remarkable it was her alone that strengthen  to the nation it is today.  She also paved the way for women to take stand in Politics and Religion such as Madeleine Albright, Dorothy Vredenburgh Bush, Audrey J.S. Carrion, and Rachelle Henderlite.

Furthermore one must not forget the respects for women such as Golda Meir and Indira Gandhi whom also made a difference that shatter the glass ceiling for women in their country.  Golda Meir is a woman of great significance because she was not only the fourth prime minister for the state of Israel but, she was one of the founders of the State government; however, during her time as prime minister she was able to promote a peace movement in the state of Israel when previous prime ministers could not.  Indira Gandhi also made a great significance during her time as president of India display of toughness and political assertiveness was influential to nation of India. She had not problem showing how much she could do despite false claims that male politicians had made about her while she was in power for nearly two decades.

Women in some parts of the world are making their voice be heard such as Saudi Arabia because for the longest women could never take office or run in elections but, due to recent laws they have been able to do so in local and state elections which have never been done before.

Even in places like Iran have made changes due to women rights movement that have been done there years because women wanted the rights to marriage, divorce, health, reproductive and,  abortion.  In 2005 one year before the death of Iranian leader Saddam Hussein they had pass the law that allowed women to get an Abortion.

Over the past century you are seeing a new age of women writers from different parts of the world that talk about their struggles and the life it’s like to live in that time and place.  Also there are some women writers that are in countries for years that never did allow women to do anything especially learn how to read and right so, there is new voice emerging ever before so, in the future women writers will gain similar or equal respect as those of male writers.

These are some of the things in the world that makes me proud to be a woman, however, there are some men that do back a great woman for you need to two in order to make humanity thrive as well as survive.

Gender Construct

If one was to open a dictionary to look for the term construct they would find the definition of to Build; however. If one was to look in the same dictionary to find the meaning of gender there will be different types of meanings from different origins.

Gender construct is a form of social construction based on conflicting theories in order to better understand gender and gendered behavior of an individual.  In addition based on many theories done by studies over in the last century many Sociologist such as R.W. Connell have made discovers in the field of Gender Construction based on observations of different cultures.   In her book” Gender & Power Connell explains that different gender have different expectation of what they should do for themselves and their families based on research with different cultures.

Also in his book the differences between male and female were very interesting because the numbers of what a male and female capabilities of based on the country, population and culture especially when it comes to ready for, men in some countries could read better than a women; however, in other countries some women can read better than other women from a different generations.

According to the University of Michigan female writers such as the famed Mary Wollstonecraft discover their role as a maternal mentor for; they try to create a picture of the ideal mother to raise proper children which through instincts and examples in order for that child to maintain a lasting effect on keep moral standards taught by mothers. Furthermore in the late eighteenth century women at the time were restrained in the participation in Georgian Sociopolitical life, Wollstonecraft stated that women should redefine power through spiritual aspiration, pedagogic and, philanthropic power; however, women in society at the time believed that the act of nurturing was the source of power as well as the longing to been nurtured themselves.

However, though a model of a mother-nurture role was created, the patriarchal literary authority was fighting to be a symbolic family dynamics for children.  In addition Charlotte Smithwrote “Conversations Introducing Poetry “was created to be used as a manual for mothers to teach the children the importance of learning poetry.  Also as a similar figure similar to Mary Wollstonecraft she also insisted that girls be educated in the fundamentals of reading, poetry and analysis.

In the field of literature woman are given stereotypic roles such as subordinates to their male counterparts for, they are brought out to be confined women in most works such as “Beowulf”, “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight”.  In the book of Beowulf the women are describe to be glorified waitresses and sex objects but, the theories about this are far more complex because of the quote of Beowulf “A queen weave peace”; however, most believe that a women’s role was to be a mediator so should would be well-kept, confined, and a departure on all male related activities.

In “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight” the lady of Bertilak’s Castle is an interesting combination of a confined and unconfined woman which was unheard of in a time period when women had little to no rights based on her status in civilization but, the actions of Sir Gawain show complete delicate in mannerism and decorum when dealing with the lady of Bertilak’s Castle; however, she is a of a confine status despite her wildness Sir Gawain must treat her such.

Furthermore Morgan la Faye is an unconfined woman in the story so she is free to wreak havoc onto the world of men such as the Mother of Grendel in the book of “Beowulf” for, they two cause mischiefs to bring men to their knees unlike the lady of Bertilak’s Castle who is a peace weaving character.

The significance of gender construct and stereotypical roles determines greatly when exploring women’s literature when it goes back to the Romantic Revolution in the 1800’s when women began to have works publish because men would not allow women to publish any works of writing.   In addition in the works of Classical writing men portrayed women to be evil and saintless with no middle ground but, works such as “Beowulf” women were either described as confined peace weavers or unconfined horrible creatures.

However in the “Pride and Prejudice” written and published under Jane Austen was controversial at the time because it was women’s literature and men did not read it because it was consider inferior to men’s literature.  In addition they claimed the characters portrayed as general stereotypes such as the strong-willed young women, the silly mothers of four girls and the Tramp & Respectable lady.  However Louisa May Alcott classical writings portrayed fully developed females for, her characters are individuals that you would easily recognize everyday out on the streets based on personality.

The significance in gender construct and stereotypes in literature shows the gendered behaviors and the roles of the gender based in literature because both sides have different views of what each one is and the status of such individual.
