I think it’s hilarious that when someone says they “don’t like” something, (be it here or on other pages), a fair number of people seem to act like the OP is “telling them what to do.”
They’re expressing their opinion. They’re not saying, “You!!! Yes, you reading this sentence! YOU SHOULD DO WHAT I SAY!”
If someone says they don’t like piercings/tattoos/makeup/hair dye/drugs/alcohol/cigarettes/parties/whatever, that doesn’t mean they’re TELLING other people to abstain from those things. It just means they don’t like that stuff.
Perhaps people should stop reading into things so much that they develop a victimhood complex, and think that any time someone says, “I like girls without makeup,” it automatically means, “I insist that any girl reading this cease and desist from wearing makeup, starting now.”
It’s usually met with a comment like, “Women don’t exist to please you!!!” etc. Um, that’s not the point the person was making: They were simply saying that they personally don’t like something… and if you do, then that’s fine, but no one is implying the bizarre assumption you just made. Women don’t exist to please you? Of course they don’t… and that has absolutely nothing to do with what they said. They simply stated their preference; not that people should do as they say.
And please don’t say “That kind of thing doesn’t happen,” or “It’s rare that people make that sort of interpretation,” because even a cursory glance through past comment posts on this blog says otherwise.
