Do not wear contact lenses if you are in a situation where you may be tear-gassed.  When I went through basic training, we were warned that there was a possibility the tear gas they were using could melt contact lenses.

BOOOOOOOOOOOST!!!!!!!!!!

Wear whatever the hell you want and what feels right for you. You do not exist to cater to the eyeballs of every other human being. Your existence is not for being everyone’s preference. Your worth is not tied in with whether or not you’re considered ‘eye candy’ by someone. Do you, YOU are wonderful and you are the only person who gets to decide what you wear.
