Gregmal Posted July 3, 2020 Share Posted July 3, 2020 Isn't the fundamental objection to many, have to do with somebody altering one's skin to look like another race? So...isnt this what tanning is? Somebody deliberately trying to look darker? I see tons of pushback against makeup products, and specifically a lot of outrage over "whitening" products geared towards Indians and obviously, the dreaded blackface. Why is tanning different? And what happened to "my body, my choice". Maybe I'm losing it, but on the basis of consistency and logical soundness, it seems scattershot at best. Todays society picks and chooses on a hypocritical basis and then dictates to others how they must act, or otherwise face being attacked. Is it your body, your choice what you do to it? Or not? Disclosure: I think tanning is stupid. At best you are blowing up your dermatologist visits and at worst setting a dinner date with cancer. I have never worn blackface. I have never worn white face. I do not have a personal opinion on whether or not people should be able to do/wear any of these things. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
