The question about what it means that some men say they don't like makeup flowed very naturally out of the conversation about compliments and it was never about whether or not individual men find makeup attractive
As a guy, I find make up totally repulsive; I have since I was a little kid kissing my grandmother on the cheek. It tastes and smells horrible. Heels are just bizarre, they make the legs look unnatural and gross... and I won't even get into cutting open your chest and putting bags of water inside your body.
Girls can wear jeans and cut their hair short and wear shirts and boots because it's okay to be a boy; for girls it's like promotion. But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading, according to you, because secretly you believe that being a girl is degrading.
― Ian McEwan, The Cement Garden
"It means you can't look sad or even neutral in public because a stranger, a man, will inevitably order you to smile."
