Comment on Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”) by Ashley.
I wish I read this years ago. Almost all of my life, comments (such as those mentioned above), have been made to me by many other woman and some males. It’s the woman pointing my skin tone out that used to surprise me the most. Wow, what an observation… I need a tan, why didn’t i think of that! Oh yeah…2nd & 3rd degree sun burns my whole life might be the hint that i can’t tan. Wish i could, obviously, but i can’t. Grrr. Feel better now, thanks Kelly. 🙂 p.s. We the pale will be kind enough to refrain from pointing out you’re wrinkled tether ball skin in ten years. XO
