Friday Fun: You Could Be a Hot Chick If You…

funny-pictures-hot-or-not-catI hear this sometime. You could be a hot chick if you did so-and-so. Each and every time, whatever the specifics of such a statement, I find it ridiculous. And sometimes hilarious.

Do I get offended because, when they tell me I could be a hot chick if I did so-and-so, people are telling me that I’m not a hot chick? Not at all. I do have a mirror, even though I don’t look at it often. I know what I look like. I know how I dress. I’m aware of what is considered hot, and no, I don’t fit. Nor do I care to.

I find such statements ridiculous because of the implications, so let’s go through some of them.

A make-up pro could make a hot chick out of you

Implying that I’m clueless about make-up, and completely incapable of researching the subject and finding tutorials. I don’t expect people to know a friend of mine is a make-up pro, but I do expect them to think. If you have only ever seen me with zero make-up, what does it tell you? Not knowing how to apply it is one possibility, yes. Another one is that my skin is too sensitive. Yet another one is that I don’t want any make-up. And so on and so forth — and yet, some people automatically assume that I’m clueless or ignorant. Or that I’ve never seen what great make-up looks like, and have no idea of the possibilities. Or that I have no brains. Or whatever.

You would look more feminine/like a hot chick/whatever with long hair

Long hair on women is considered more feminine, at least in theory? Really? I had no idea! Once again, I’m totally clueless. Not to mention people thought I was a boy even when my hair was waist-long. (With my hair short, they sometimes mistake me for a lesbian)

You would be really hot in a short dress/skirt/whatever

Short dresses and skirts are uncomfortable. Does my underwear show? Will it show if I sit? Oh, great, it keeps pulling up, so I have to keep pulling it down.

Yes, I am aware that women in short dresses/skirts, or otherwise showing a lot of skin, are considered hot by some. Thank you for informing me. However, I find that such clothes:

– are uncomfortable, which means I’d be uncomfortable most of the time, and I don’t want to feel uncomfortable

– attract a lot of attention from the kind of people I want to stay away from me

I prefer my clothes to be comfortable, because I feel better that way, and non-attention-grabbing, because that way random people on the streets don’t notice me and therefore leave me alone, which is the way I like it.

You could be a hot chick if you…

Whatever comes next, this statement seems to imply that I want to be a hot chick, I just don’t know how. Err… I’m 37. I’ll be 38 next November. If I wanted to be a hot chick, if I cared about it even one tiny bit, wouldn’t I do something about it? Wouldn’t I learn how to be one? Or is my intelligence insufficient for such a (not really) complex task? Isn’t it obvious from my looks that I simply don’t care about being hot?

People usually mean nothing wrong when they tell me something like that. They honestly believe they’re trying to help me. The thing is, they don’t think. Whoever tells me I could be a hot chick if… understands nothing about me. You know nothing, Jon Snow, and all that.

How about you? Do people whom you’ve never asked for opinion tell you how you should look, and what to do in order to achieve the look you don’t care for?
