You know what’s awful?  Being really and truly suited for a society that dictates that all skin but the face be covered before leaving the house (and dictates that everyone wears hats outside), but living in a society that thinks the more tan you are, the better.

It’s really obnoxious to have to cover up all of my skin before spending much time in the sun (or deal with the ickiness that is every sunscreen I’ve ever tried).  Do you have any idea how hard it is to find anything long sleeved in the spring or summer?

It’s just too bad that having pale skin is no longer really in vogue. 🙂

    Haha. Asians (in Asia) still prize pale skin!

    Yeah, but it’s not fashionable to covered from head to toe year round there, either.
