Aren’t there more important things to be tweeting about?
I had an interesting exchange with a few of my Twitter friends earlier today. A flurry of tweets went back and forth, stemming from a decision I made last night to take down my Twitter avatar, a close-up of my lips and nothing else. Many, many tweets were exchanged over the course of the day, basically a lobby of sorts, to convince me to put the picture of my lips back up.
Funny, right? Being the curious truthseeker that I am, I asked myself a question: What’s the big deal about men and red lipstick?
I dived into cyberspace to find an answer.
Boy, what I learned actually made me blush a little bit. And it takes a lot for me to blush. The basic gist of the article suggests that we go to great lengths to paint our eyes and lips, wear certain types of clothing to accentuate our necks or waists, and wear fragrances, for the sole purpose of getting laid.
Regarding lipstick, the act of painting our lips red signals that we are sexually aroused and/or willing to perform certain kinds of sexual favors for a man. Yeah, that. And what man isn’t down for a BJ??
Yeah, that’s what I thought.
So as much as folks wanna try and be evasive and vague about it, those guys had only one thing on their mind.
So for now, I’ll go along with the game. And I’ll keep wearing my red lipstick. Let ’em think what they want.
