***dark-skinned people round the world laugh till tears roll down their cheeks***
highkey the most clueless white feminist article title/header i’ve seen in a while.
…this…cannot…be…serious. Sun/tanning culture JUST happened for white folks in the last century. Like… there has ALWAYS been an embrace of pale skin - “alabaster beauty”, “porcelain skin”, “skin pure as driven snow”. Umm…y’all decided “tanning” was something necessary for beauty because it wasn’t enough to make dark-skinned folks feel ugly for it, you had to take that and make it better ‘cause if it ain’t white it ain’t right, right? But now you wanna play victim? Hell nawl.
