How can society become more accepting of people as a whole, instead of the european standard of beauty?
People are mixing more with the passage of time, but with the passage of time western features as the epitome of beauty have also spread (leaving many alienated).
*This question comes after reading a beautiful and compelling short story written by
writer Aliete De Board, titled Immersion:
Here is a comment posted by Khaalidah: ' I once met a Filipino woman who told me that she wanted to look American. Jokingly and sadly I asked if she meant "like me" (African American) and she told me no. When I pressed her to explain what she meant, she told me that she wanted to look more Caucasian.
African American women used to (and some still do) bleach their skin for a lighter complexion.
Asian woman have blepharoplasty to achieve a fold in the upper eyelid.
Women have collagen injections to plump their facees to achieve a younger look. They get botox injections to erase wrinkles.
So many people are trying to achieve and maintain unnatural standards and in the process forget who and what they are. I can't tell you how many women I've heard say they can't remember their hair color.'
