I really don't see how armed adults (presumably with handguns, not assault rifles), with potentially minimal training, in a stressful, traumatic situation, with kids who with or without lockdown training may be freaking out and running around - yeah, that's really going to stop the shooter!!1!
Not to mention, should we expect civilians in a public school to be armed at all times? I'm going into teaching. No way do I feel comfortable with that responsibility, nor should it be asked of me.
We tell ourselves that if everyone was armed, it Would All Be Ok because it's a way of staying in denial that it could happen to us, at any time. It's a way, no matter how implicit, of "blaming the victim". It's no different than telling women to carry around pepper spray, as if a spritz of a chemical is enough to ward off all that is evil in the world.
Pro tip dudes: when women put on makeup in the morning, it is for a whole plethora of reasons, and "What random dude X thinks" is probably near the bottom, next to "What kinda makeup grandmas wear."
So stop with this assumption that you are the arbiter of beauty.
Pro tip the second: most dudes have no idea when women are wearing makeup or not. They think "makeup" means green eyeshadow and the makeup gun set to "Whore" (a la Marge Simpson), so decide they are Categorically Against That. Meanwhile, the same dudes have no idea when a woman has on a lip stain, blush, concealer, and mascara, insisting that THAT is the "natural look".
So, you know, go learn yourself before deciding you know anything about this topic.
BACK TO THREAD: Benefit's "Benetint" (the red one) is awesome if you want a very natural, flush-y stain, and it works on lips and cheeks! A little goes a long way.
And my favorite cult products: NARS blush in Orgasm, NARS lipstick in Dolce Vita (a great pinkish neutral, like Clinique's "Tenderheart"),
Diorshow mascara, Stila eyeshadow in "Kitten", LORAC's eyeshadows.
Benefit's Erase Paste is the absolute BEST concealer. It is made with demon magic - I use it almost every other day and the pot has lasted me a year and a half. It's made from unicorns!
Lush Ocean Salt is the best exfoliator I've ever found, and their "Angels on Bare Skin" is mana from heaven for my combination skin.
