sometimes it's about women, not about makeup.
i am sorry cancer research, but my #nomakeupselfie is for a different cause:
for telling a guy in a club who groped me that it is completely inappropriate to touch a woman without her consent, i was beaten. he told me to "Smile!", too. (www.stoptellingwomentosmile.com)
no, we do not have to wear makeup
no, we do not have to smile
and, most importantly,
no, we do NOT have to be touched.
i'm trying to channel my rage into something constructive, so i'm raising money for the Oxford Sexual Abuse and Rape Crisis Centre (OSARCC).
thanks, friends. sometimes you just have to make the best out of a broken nose, right?
