This man asked people on Twitter how they'd react if they caught their son wearing makeup. The responses were unforgettable.

Twitter is the best barometer of the ever-changing winds of cultural opinion. As the dynamics of accepted masculinity and gender roles shift, we can learn exactly how this shift is occurring through social media.

When Twitter user @JuSaSiMPLe_man posted a hypothetical question regarding parental reactions to a son wearing makeup, he expected a response.


But the response received was overwhelming. The since-deleted Tweet garnered a whopping 5.5K replies.

While the Tweet drew some mean comments, the response was overwhelmingly positive, with many of the comments focusing on the quality of the boy’s rather than the fact he was putting on makeup in the first place.

The responses send the message that it’s more important to love your son than it is to hold on to a prejudice. However, people will still not tolerate using the wrong foundation!

Why should a superintendent get a raise while teachers in the same district struggling to make ends meet see their paychecks flatline — year after year after year?

Teacher Deyshia Hargrave begged the question. Minutes later, she was handcuffed and placed in the backseat of a cop car.

The scene was captured below by YouTube user Chris Rosa, who attended a board meeting for Vermilion Parish Schools in Louisiana.

You can watch Hargrave begin speaking about 33 seconds in. The situation starts becoming contentious around 6:35 minutes. Hargrave is arrested at 8:35, and then walked outside in handcuffs and placed in the back of police vehicle. (Story continues below.)



"We work very hard with very little to maintain the salaries that we have," Hargrave, who teaches middle school language arts, said during a public comment portion of the meeting, stating that she's seen classroom sizes balloon during her time at the school with no increased compensation. "We're meeting those goals, while someone in that position of leadership [the superintendent] is getting raise? It's a sad, sad day to be a teacher in Vermilion Parish."
