Ulta Beauty: Erasing traditional women

Heads up if you shop at Ulta Beauty: They are trying to erase real women under the guise of libspeak, “the intersectionality of gender identity.”

Ulta had a  gender fluid man and a “trans” man in one of their “The Beauty Of…” podcasts to discuss femininity and beauty. The two men, David Lopez and Dylan Mulvaney, live their lives through gender appropriation. Here’s a clip from their podcast:

You can watch the full podcast here, where the cowards turned off comments.

Ulta Beauty has gone full woke in order to showcase “the many definitions of beauty.”

Many commenters decried the fact that Ulta Beauty is going so far as to let two men hijack the conversation of feminity. #boycottulta began trending on Twitter as a result of this podcast (hence Ulta Beauty turning off comments on both YouTube and Instagram).

Ulta Beauty defended their choice saying, “The premise of ‘The Beauty Of…’ is to feature conversations that widen the lens surrounding traditional beauty standards. We believe beauty is for everyone. And while we recognize some conversations we host will challenge perspective and opinions, we believe constructuve dialogue is one important way to move beauty forward.”

This is not about beauty standards. This is about science, biology and the destruction of women in our culture.

Dylan will never be a “mom” because he was born a biological man and it is physically impossible for him to transition to a woman, He can put on a wig and makeup to redefine his own beauty all he wants. Yet I won’t allow him to redefine the definition of woman. I know the lastest Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson may not be able to define a woman, yet it is really quite simple:

Moving forward I will never shop at Ulta Beauty ever again.

Hardest-working and laziest states

 

WalletHub just issued its report on the hardest-working and laziest states in America, using data from the U.S. Census Bureau , the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and other organizations.

The criteria for “hard-working” include average workweek hours, employment rate, idle youth rate, leisure time, and volunteer efforts. The report also weighs in factors such as commute time and amount of people with multiple jobs.

Americans are hard workers, putting in an average of 1,791 hours per year as of 2021, according to the World Economic Forum. That’s 442 hours per year more than Germans work, but 337 fewer than Mexicans do. Even when given the chance to not work as hard, many Americans don’t. Americans forfeited an average of 4.6 paid days off in 2021.

Based on WalletHub’s criteria, here are all 50 U.S. states ranked from hardest working to least. I added the red and blue colors, using the updated 2022 list of red and blue states, referring to states whose voters predominantly choose either the Republican Party (Red) or Democratic Party (Blue) for presidential and senatorial candidates.

  1. North Dakota
  2. Alaska
  3. Nebraska
  4. South Dakota
  5. Texas
  6. Virginia
  7. Oklahoma
  8. Kansas
  9. New Hampshire
  10. Wyoming
  11. Georgia
  12. Colorado
  13. Tennessee
  14. Maryland
  15. Hawaii
  16. Utah
  17. Indiana
  18. Minnesota
  19. Alabama
  20. Arkansas
  21. Louisiana
  22. Iowa
  23. Mississippi
  24. Wisconsin
  25. Idaho
  26. Vermont
  27. North Carolina
  28. South Carolina
  29. Missouri
  30. Maine
  31. Montana
  32. Kentucky
  33. Arizona
  34. Washington
  35. Florida
  36. Delaware
  37. Nevada
  38. Pennsylvania
  39. Illinois
  40. California
  41. Oregon
  42. Ohio
  43. New Jersey
  44. Massachusetts
  45. Connecticut
  46. West Virginia
  47. Michigan
  48. New York
  49. Rhode Island
  50. New Mexico

As you can see, 8 of the 10 most hardworking states are red states, whereas 8 of the 10 laziest states are blue states. Why does that not surprise me?
