    Their is a certain irony here.

    In asian culture the whiter a persons skin colour is the more higher status they have. The basis of this is that the rich and upper classes do not have to toil in the sun for a living. While the poor do labour in the sun and their skin becomes tanned. So if you want to appear better off than your neighbor then stay out of the sun and get a white skin.

    However, in my opinion, most of these women look much better as their natural self. I was watching one famous beauty youtuber the other day and she was talking about the outfit she had on. Her shirt was a little short and she said to pay no attention to her pale stomach -- she only self-tans her chest, arms and legs in the winter time. How ridiculous she must look naked.
    Truthfully, I've always admired people with darker skin tones, particularly carmel and olive hues. Then again, I'm as pasty white as a snowball and have always thought myself as blonde, bland and unattractive. Even when I was a young woman with a fairly nice figure, I never wore bikinis because I was sure the sun's reflection bouncing off my bleached-out body would blind everyone in the area, lol.

    I know, but can't understand it; Asians as a race comprise some of the most beautiful people on the planet. Why mess with that??

    I may just be naive, lol, but I didn't take it that way... and I'm actually not into most makeup/beauty product discussions at all. For some reason, I found this topic caught my interest.

    So many people are not happy they way they are... even when they are wonderful in the eyes of other people.

Practically every day there's new examples of "progressive" activists, journalists and politicians digging up someone's old social media comments, that don't strictly adhere to modern leftist 'sensibilities'.

    Then they WIDELY spread the "horrible words" made by someone in a social media post long ago. They twist and spin the narrative, exaggerating the "speech-crime". Then they rile up the progressive base, who Immediately DEMAND that the perpetrator's life be ruined, fired from their job, kicked out of school, demonized on social media, thrown out of their apartments, and symbolically tarred and feathered in a VERY public way! The whole thing is an insidious political intimidation strategy, designed to shut down public discourse and dissent against their ideology. .

    Or for simply using a word that activists have recently deemed unacceptable! The notion of "cultural appropriation" is one of many examples, where they write articles, and have roundtable discussions on the "evil" of allowing your white kid to dress in a friggin Black Panther Halloween costume!

    Here's a video from CBS, which touches on this. It's one of many videos on leftist cancel culture:
    You forget when the right wing canceled the Ground Zero Mosque, Kaepernick’s career, the Dixie Chix, etc

    Agreed. Tattoos being the latest. In my day it was long hair and bell bottom pants. Nothing that requires laser removal.
