This Man’s Response To People Slut-Shaming His Mother For Wearing Red Lipstick Is Epic

By  | 

Lipstick is a staple beauty product in all our vanities. I don’t remember the last time I left the house without applying a coat of my favourite shade. There is something about lipstick that just automatically gives you a sense of confidence. However, did you know that people judge you wearing certain shades of lipstick? Like red, for instance. Apparently, in society’s eyes, women who wear red lipsticks are, for the lack of a better word, sluts. What is the logic here? How can you judge a woman by the shade of her lipstick? However, this man wasn’t having it. After a few relatives shamed his mother for wearing red lipstick, he put it on himself and sent them a picture. What an epic response! 

Pushpak Sen took to social media to share a powerful message after his 54-year-old mother was slut-shamed by some relatives at a family gathering for applying red lipstick. The next day, Pushpak applied red lipstick himself and sent a picture to his relatives saying, “Good morning. Get well soon”. Am I the only one who laughed out loud at this? It’s not every day that we come across a son who is willing to defend his mother like this. Are all guys taking notes? 

Pushpak took to Facebook to narrate the entire incident. He started out by talking about how his 54-year-old mother was slut-shamed for wearing red lipstick at a family get together. He moves on and talks about how this picture of his stands for people from binary and non-binary genders.

His post read, “My mother, a woman of 54 years, got slut-shamed, by some of our nearest relatives, for wearing red lipstick at a family get-together. So yesterday, I sent all of them this picture with ‘Good morning. Get well soon.’ message. What baffled me the most is that some of these relatives have children, who are super ‘woke’ on social media and were present when this ‘gossip’ was happening but didn’t say a word. Here I am, a man with a full face of beard and red lipstick. Here I am, standing up for all the mothers, sisters, daughters, non-males and all the womxn who have had to suppress their desires because of the toxicity of an insecure society. Here I am, standing up for all of them and asking my fellow brothers to stand up for the womxn you know, in your own way, when you see your loved ones getting bullied.” 

Hats off to this man, really. He stood up for his mom and shut down his judgemental relatives in the best way possible. His post is so inspiring and empowering. Red lipstick is not an invite, not a character certificate. It’s just a red lipstick. A woman wearing even the brightest red lipsticks is not a slut. 

It’s really ridiculous that a simple red lipstick is enough to make people uncomfortable. Have these people never heard of the phrase, “live and let live”?

More power to Pushpak!
