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

Growing up in the southeastern US, getting a tan in the summer was de rigueur. Many women even tanned year-round, either in tanning beds or out in the sun. Luckily, I stopped my obsession with tanning by the time I hit my early twenties. Now, I make sure to wear sunscreen daily. I don’t want to look like a baseball mitt, and I don’t want skin cancer. If someone doesn’t like my pale skin or my freckles, they can just look the other way. πŸ˜€
