Comment on Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”) by Jane.

I agree with you that yelling at people for tanning is stupid. It’s more the implication that not tanning is unhealthy that is annoying.

Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”)
Oh my gosh, yes, finally. My mother is always telling me how pale and unhealthy I look and how maybe I should go outside more, because she thinks I look sick and it’s really unpleasant.

My friends too. One of them told me not to wear red, because it drew attention to the fact that I was pale. Maybe I like my skin? Just because you don’t wear sunscreen and then whine about your peeling skin every summer.

I like my fair skin (I’m pretty much Chris Colfer white), because it looks good with my dark brown hair and my illogically black eyebrows and my blue eyes. Just like a lot of girls like their tanned skin, because it looks good with their coloring. I don’t understand why I’m supposed to be covering myself in Cheeto Dust and sprawling out on the beach.

I think I’d have to do B– but only if allowed Hollywood tape!

I’m going to say B, because at least I could just tell people I felt sick and was wearing my pajamas.

Underwear as Outerwear: the Venus bustier
If in the summer boys can walk around with their tops off than I should be able to walk around in my bra. I personally wouldn’t wear this, but I would never judge anyone for it. (Maybe a little for that weird v shape.)

(Showing skin is the wearers choice and the motivation can be entirely their personal preference and have nothing to do with making boys like them.)

Is it offensive? The Ardorous X American Apparel Period Power Washed Tee (Images NSFW)
I know this artist and I can tell you 100% that she is doing this for the message– whether American Apparel is is definitely up for debate– as many of her most famous photographs include women’s natural bodies in a way that isn’t for shock value. Ex. Unsexualized underwear shots of girls with pubic hair peeking out rather than a pristinely waxed bikini line.
