Comment on Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”) by katri.
I am also in the club of skin so pale it’s practically translucent, and it seems really difficult for most people to understand that I don’t actually give a toss. It’s like it’s totally impossible for their brains to process that someone doesn’t want a tan and simply can’t be bothered about it at all. And even if I wanted a tan? Can’t get it! I have never, ever in my life had a tan of any sorts, and currently sporting the worst sun-burn of my life I actually wouldn’t mind if I never had to show my skin to the sun again.
