Beware! According to Cosmo, there’s an evil beauty trend that is corrupting teh menz!
Seriously, Cosmo? You’re criticizing Ronaldo for wearing toenail polish? And not for being the biggest freaking whiner and faker in futbol?
His pointless theatrics is what is offensive, not his grooming habits. Oh. Wait. Of course ladies don’t watch sports. They only know about sports stars if they are cute/or dating a model or celebrity.
And FYI, Cosmo, my boyfriend (who, from now on, will be referred to as the Stig) occasionally wears nail polish. Which does not make him any less of a man. I’m going to repeat that, because I’m sur your obnoxiously herteronormative worldview can’t quite handle this concept:
COSMETICS ARE NOT GENDER SPECIFIC. THEY DO NOT TELL ANYTHING ABOUT THE WEARERS SEXUALITY OR ORIENTATION. IF YOUR BOYFRIEND WEARS EYELINER/NAIL POLISH/WHATEVER, THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT HE IS GAY.
Evidently, Cosmo thought it would be a great idea to have guys “bitch it out” about the things they don’t like. This asshat takes the cake:
“This girl is so sexy! And she won’t stop wearing sexy clothes! So I can’t get any work done! But I like it!!11!!11!” Dude, if you can’t concentrate on your work because of what another coworker is wearing, it’s because YOU don’t have any focus or self-control. And, it’s highly likely that your coworker’s sartorial choices have absolutely nothing to do with giving you a private show at work. Also, way to go with the accompanying photo, Cosmo! Because all women with careers are simply another nice (white) pair of legs!
