    I’m Mexican so I’m naturally tan but I think pale women can be very beiufatul. That whole fake tanning lotion and using tanning beds is terrible; just go lay out in the sun. I like to think pale woman can at least pull off that old fashion pin up look with that nice red lipstick.

    That's stupid.. I am pale and proud(: I can get really tan, I just don't want to. xD

  • Victoria

    Haha, I recently got a new hairstylist. The first time I sat down and titted my head back for her to wash my hair, she gasped and cried out "you're like a porcelain baby doll!" xD
    Embrace your paleness.

  • Taylor

    I thought people were over the tan thing. I'm black so I never had to worry about it, but why's it still a big deal? A lot of pale women are really beautiful.
    And another thing — I hope the three blonde girls aren't really ur friends, because then it's kind of like you made fun of them and showed it to everyone on here. I know i'ts ur business and I don't agree with the tanning thing. Just sayin'. Be real.

    psht. i define the pale scale. i totally understand how she feels, but minus the wetsuit. i have a great body and even with my obnoxiously pale skin, i rock a bikini. my boyfriend (who is Puerto Rican, btw) loves it and thats all i care about! if you're pale, embrace it. you're not fake, like those other bitches.

    Every time I go out in shorts or a skirt or anything that shows my legs, arms, belly, neck, ANYTHING, people are commenting on how pale I am. I've decided that I'm a walking piece of paper. I've tried all the tanning methods but the salons and booths, and nothing works. I'm glad to know that someone understands. 🙂

    I thought the story was clever and had a great message. And the art was cute & simple!

  • Serena

    I really didn't like it…
    the story was like, cute, but it was so jumpy and the art looks like….not something i liked, to be honest, it looked like an 8 year old did it. /:

  • Sarah<3

    haha, i like this a lot

  • Emma

    Thought this was funny, I'm really pale, as in really really pale, and I love it! it's different, who wants to go around looking like those 3 blonde orange girls? not me.

  • girl in a wet suit

    i think lauryn got it right.. but i wanna be the cute blonde one.

  • Chantelle

    You know tanning beds are worse for you then laying out in the sun. 30 minutes in the tanning bed is equal to 8 hrs in the sun. :/

  • lauryn

    actually, i think the moral of the story is that she tried so hard to fit in and be tan, but at the end it didn't even matter because she got the guy and realized she just had to be herself…

  • Sophiee

    so, the moral of the story was be so ashamed of your true skin colour that you have to hide it with a wetsuit? nice. :/
