    You think people should be angry because women want to be beautiful?

    i think people should be angry that anyone is made to feel that one skin color is more desireable than another.

    'Made to feel'? They recognize beauty when they see it and wish to emulate it. What's wrong with that?

    you know, i'm thinking you don't even believe that ....

    nice troll, though.

    i think we all know that standards for what is considered "beauty" are societal.

    there was a time when fat women were considered beautiful. I seem to recall from art history that there was something called rubenesque.

    Not quite. There was a time when women of a healthy weight filled the magazines- and most men still like such women over anorexic little things that break when you fuck them.

    Regardless, you've still yet to give any reason to be upset because women know that clear, light skin is attractive.

    i didn't say i'm upset. i said THEY have every reason to be upset. I stand by what i said before. i don't think there's any natural inherant benefit to any particular color. such benefit, perceived or otherwise, is a function of societal pressures... much like having curly hair is considered a positive or a negative depending on the particular period of time.

    As for rubenesque:

    Why? Because women want to be beautiful?
    Then you failed advanced biology. Different races emerged due to different lines of evolution. The different races are adapted to their native environments.
