The title made me think back to when I have heard these words from someone, so it made me curious as to what hurtful comments all of you have buried over the years.
"You'd be so pretty if you just wore a little more makeup."
This one was basically saying I was a "plain Jane" and I should jazz it up a bit. I basically let it roll off, but it did kind of bug me anyway because it was just such an necessary thing to say.
"You'd be so pretty with a little more color."
Ok, I know I am a major whitey – but that is by choice. This is perhaps the one good thing I learned from the modeling days – stay out of the sun. This was to of course protect my skin from wrinkles but also because any sort of tan line was a no-no.
So, it's your turn. Tell me when you heard someone utter these words and how you felt.
