It was brought up by someone else earlier that if the same was said about really dark people then it would be considered racist. Well firstly, as I've said dark people are not a race, so it can't be. Secondly, the same thing is often said about particularly dark people. People of African and Indian subcontinental origin often remark negatively about the darker skinned people of their own groups.

I personally have always been bemused by people who are seemingly so offended or repulsed by pale skin, but it doesn't make them racist.

It is also not racist to attack British people. Xenophobic maybe, but not racist.
I know, there are lots of darkskinned people who actually use surgery to lighten their skin. How can you justify this?

Why do people take so much offense concerning the colour of someone's skin? The reason is the media. The media decides what image is acceptable, and the people follow that image like sheep subconsciously. If you don't believe me, note that in the 19th century the paler skin you had the more attractive you were deemed to be by the society.

Don't let society dictate your reactions to people. Whether its very dark skin, or pale, the more difference we have the more interesting humanity becomes.

Thats why Ethiks is a prick.

He may or may not be a prick, I'm yet to see why he's a prick, but it has nothing to do with race it seems. It's not racist at all.

He has his own personal opinion on what he finds attractive/unattractive. How does that make him a prick?

Did you ever think that Ethiks was quite possibly joking?

I don't seek to justify it at all. I don't condemn them for doing so - if that's what people want to do then it's their prerogative to do so. Personally I think it's stupid though, as well as sad that people would feel the need to do such a thing.

As for prick or no prick, my take would be that his opinion is one that I don't personally agree with, however he is perfectly entitled to hold it. I would say the problem would be the terms in which he expressed it. IMO it's a bit bizarre to be so seemingly incensed by something as trivial as skin tone.

But anyway, let him feel that way. The more men that do, the less competition for me and the fewer I have to beat out before I get to Lily Cole:




Arsenal
Celtic
Internazionale
Harlequins FC & Rugby League
Middlesex CCC
Baltimore Ravens

Yeah... I said it.

The way he expressed it. There's a difference between saying what you find unnattractive to what he said.

Its more the fact that people say dumb shit like that on the internet when they'd never say it in real life. Thats why I got pissed off, but whatever.

Sorry to dissapoint but the majority of women in scotland have so much fake tan and makeup that they look like oopma loopmas. Not like that.
