Comment on Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”) by K..
I have extremely pale skin that is highlighted by dark hair and I love it (so does my boyfriend). I think that being pale sets me apart from others. There are two types of comments I receive for being so white. Tanned people tend to approach me and suggest that I tan as well, or they make comments about how white I am. However, women who are older than me (usually mothers and grandmothers) compliment me on the even hue and texture of my skin. I am 22 and refuse to tan in order to fit in. Cancer and signs of premature aging are simply not worth it to me. This post delighted me!
