Some People Were Defending A Texan Makeup Artist After She Was Harassed For Telling A Potential Client She’s Gay

While the country may be celebrating Pride Month, that does not mean haters and homophobes have gone into hiding. We’re seeing a surge of hate crimes against the gay and trans community, some of them as severe as resulting in death. The latest incident comes out of Texas.

A bride-to-be was planning to hire Kristian Cardenas, a hair and makeup artist out of Lubbock, Texas, but when she found out she was gay, she unleashed hateful words.

Cardenas shared the appalling texts from a woman who was inquiring about hiring her for her wedding. In the now-viral tweet, the exchange between the two women seemed, at first, to be a typical conversation from a potential customer. Things turned for the worst when the woman pried about Cardenas’ sexuality.

The woman could not let it go that Cardenas was gay.

The woman texted: “I have a few questions I was wondering if you could answer?”

“Yes, ma’am,” the 22-year-old replied. ‘What are they?’

“Are you gay?” she asked.

“Yes, ma’am, I am,” Cardenas said. “I’m sorry but what does that have to do with your wedding or my services?”

That’s when the lady went off on her.

According to Gay Star News, Cardenas blocked the woman’s phone number after that last text. She also said that the woman’s comment utterly hurt her.

“I cried and was so mad,” she told the publication, and added, “I have very tough skin and feel like I can handle a lot, but when she told me to change who I am and then she’ll book me, I got upset. It’s so sad that someone had to be so rude to me, and they didn’t even know me.”

Instead of retailing against the woman, Cardenas said she shared the texts to show people to be kind to each other.

Someone on social media blamed Cardenas for sharing too much of her personal life on social media, saying “don’t get mad if people don’t like you for being different.”

She told them on Twitter, I” don’t like this. I am different, everyone is. No two people are the same. Openly sharing my life on my own social media shouldn’t be a bad thing. It’s not that I was offended for someone treating me “differently” it was that her remarks were unnecessary and hurtful.

The most amazing part of this terrible exchange, is that her story has a happy ending.

Fortunately, for every ill-intentioned person, there are hundreds reaching out to Kristian to offer support and kindness.

Kristian has said it has been hard to be accepted especially in Lubbock, Texas.

While this homophobic woman told Kristian she was sinning for being gay…

The lady made no sense whatsoever.

And she was harassed by this woman the entire time…

It’s as if she just wanted to piss her off. We hope she’s seeing the response she’s caused.

Kristian showed so much grace.

She held her composure.

And one thing is for sure, she’s going to get so much more business now.

Thanks, homophobic lady, because of you Cardenas is going to be rolling in clients.

Madonna’s Daughter Lourdes Embraces Natural Body Hair In Beautiful Selfie With Mom

Madonna’s Daughter Lourdes Embraces Natural Body Hair In Beautiful Selfie With Mom

Grooming habits should be a matter of personal choice, but thanks to generations of the patriarchy telling women how they should look, what they should wear, and how they should take care of their bodies, that isn’t always the case. Thankfully, more and more brave women are embracing their natural beauty and that includes their own body hair.

Lourdes Leon showing off her natural arm pit hair is the normalization of body hair we all need.

Whether it’s on the red carpet or in a photo with her mom, Madonna, Lourdes Leon has a relationship with her body hair we can all admire. For instance, he two posed for a rare selfie on April 10, and Leon’s natural look moved us another step closer to normalizing visible body hair.

The sweet image is captioned: “Like Pieces of your Heart Walking around outside of you #lola.”

‘Lola’ is the nickname of Madonna’s eldest child, whom she shares with Cuban personal trainer-actor Carlos Leon.

The fashion icon’s post has received more than 440,000 ‘likes’ with many fans praising her daughter’s decision to embrace her natural body hair – with comments including “two beautiful, strong women” and “beautiful mother with her gorgeous daughter.”

Leon has never been shy about embracing her natural beauty.

Her mother has pushed beauty boundaries for decades, so it makes sense the 24-year-old model would choose to do the same. In November 2018, Lourdes generated headlines when she showed off her unshaved armpits and legs on the red carpet at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Gala, just weeks after she turned heads for the same reason on the catwalk at New York Fashion Week.

Earlier this year, in February, she also showed off a glimpse of armpit hair in a new fashion campaign for Marc Jacobs. 

It seems that Lourdes may even have been inspired by her famous mom when it comes to ditching the razor. Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar in 2010, the singer said: “Going to high school, I saw how popular girls had to behave to get the boys. I knew I couldn’t fit into that.

“So I decided to do the opposite. I refused to wear makeup, to have a hairstyle. I refused to shave. I had hairy armpits.”

Kid Cudi Wore A Dress To Pay Tribute To Kurt Cobain During SNL Appearance

There’s no doubt that SNL has been the stage of some pretty groundbreaking performances and fashion moments. This past weekend was no different. While appearing as the late-night show’s musical guest the 37-year-old rapper of Mexican-American descent wore outfits a la late Nirvana rocker, Kurt Cobain.

Kid Cudi’s made a pretty big retro fashion statement for his Saturday Night Live musical performances this weekend.

For his first performance, which featured his song “Tequila Shots,” Cudi wore a t-shirt featuring the image of a late SNL cast member Chris Farley. Farley died in 1997 at age 33 from an overdose of cocaine and morphine. Over the shirt, Cudi wore a green cardigan, which many Twitter users were quick to note resembled one Kurt Cobain wore.

Cobain died by suicide in 1994.

During his performance of “Sad People,” Kid Cudi changed into a floral dress, which he confirmed in a tweet was in honor of Cobain.

Cudi’s took place on the same week of the anniversary of Cobain’s death, which occured on April 5.

“Virgil [Abloh] designed the dress for me,” Kid Cudi explained about the dress. “I told him I wanted to show love to Kurt w a floral print sundress and this man-made a masterpiece.”

Cudi also shared that he intends to collaborate with Abloh on his fashion label Off-White. The dress will be included.
