    No??? The Chinese media. The western media ignores Asians, doofus.

    Actual Asian media celebrates dark Asians.
    I could give a list but I'm sure you know this.

    I pray one day you find love for yourself.
    But if you're naturally pale don't go walking around thinking you're better than someone else. It's skin. You could be pale and still be a moron or something.
    do u actually watch the chinese media...

    I know it is, I told you I know about bai fu mei, gao fu shuai. But I've still seen "tall, dark, handsome" type actors. The Chinese are made fun of all the time in the west for altering their gorgeous ethnic traits to look white. You don't have to tell me.

    We who? And where is the bullying? I'm asking a capable adult to explain his sentiments about a very controversial subject.

    Don't let it get to you, you're not hurting anyone and if you like it, keep doing it. You don't need to justify yourself x

    I was refering to many other users commenting on his sense of self-worth. It's nothing that we need to get involved with, it's his own business

    is he vampire? sounds kind of ridiculous but I don't expect someone with pale skin to understand why his concerns about his skin shade would be offensive. why are you positively reinforcing something like this?

    it's nothing racist, im happy with my skin colour, and happy that others are too, im just asking if you like to lighten or darken your natural colour a bit more.

    No but I am a human, I have empathy. Of course he should be happy with his skin tone and of course he is, but if he doesn't want to get darker that's his choice. I don't condemn pale people who want to tan, so why should I condemn him?

    For one please stop sensationalizing using words like "bullying" and "condemning." Sounds like stuff people do for reps.
    Be genuine, me and you, use your brain and not your emotions (plus, this thread isn't that deep to "empathize" at all with anything?) so understand that being pale wanting to be tanner is not the same insecurity as being dark wanting to be pale. People all know, even you, that dark skin is "condemned" in many cultures, even those with millions of naturally dark people :rofl:

    And people obsessed with tanning know tans are exotic but also it accentuates muscles and curves and can have a healthy glow.

    However, people who tan a lot are at risk of skin cancer so if anything both people not happy with their skin tones should be "condemned."

    I am concerned about OP because he said himself that Asians do not like dark skin and are obsessed with pale skin. It's sad. Have 'empathy' for that.
