    That's an exit only for me, it doesn't have to be pretty.

    I have always wondered why they look so much nicer on porn stars, not that I watch porn or anything. :unsure:

    I've known about this for a long time. This also can root in a post colonized society where "white" is a sign of beauty. Funny that they mention Phillipines too, another country that has a fixation with light skin tones(due to Spanish Rule), and where actors with lighter skin get jobs quicker. Women, men, everyone should be happy with the skin color they were born with. No need lightening it up(okay, maybe arsehole, that's a whole nother story)


    About the bleaching thing though, it's not only that "area" some people are bleaching. Some women in Jamaica are actually trying to bleach their faces, but not with this safe bleach the article is talking about, but ACTUAL bleach. Sad. :(

    I've heard that there's a trend in China of whitening your skin to emulate Western standards of beauty. And over here we're trying to get artificial tans. The grass is always greener.

    Wow!

    Now I think I have seen everything.IF this does not point out the pathology of our world wide obsession with very narrow standards of beauty I dont know what does! All of this just to be loved or accepted.

    Not just in China. Skin-lightening creams are extremely popular throughout the world.

    This one's from Cotonou, Benin's largest city.

    Hi TexAssGirl,

    I know you don't watch porn, you just quote your girl friend who does, right?

    Still, sphincter-lightening? What's next? New incisors all the rage in Japan?

    Jeezus! (shudder)

    That might be the most depressing thing I've read all week. I have a good imagination, but I don't think I'd ever have been able to dream up something that twisted.

    Can you imagine the pain and sadness in the life of the person who feels that this is necessary? What horrible lessons our culture has quietly taught women! Talk about a hidden curriculum!

    hung_big: That's quite sad and disgusting. Like someone before mentioned, it's obscene that some people believe something that drastic needs to be done. How easily people are brainwashed is quite astounding.
