    I think its because tanned women look healthier, more athletic, more like the girl next door. Pale is popular in fashion, like heroin chic, goth, and now the elfin look.

    My husband likes pale. He says its more feminine.

    Halley Berry is pretty but I don't see the big deal about her looks. There is another biracial woman who looks sultrier but less well-known, Salli Richardson but looks similar. I think she is prettier.

    Also, you have to realize that picture of the woman was probably considered very attractive in her time. Standards change. I suspect it will change again in the future as well. I personally think the world would be much more attractive if everyone looked like anime characters like in final fantasy but humans don't really look like that without some artificial enhancements. Maybe people will be born with pink and lavender hair in the future, who knows.

    Now are you attracted to pink/lavender hair, or the kind of girl who has that color of hair?

    Both, because of the personality and the hair.

    Stop being obtuse. Uh, they are over 80 genius. I prefer that on younger people, not quite naturally possible yet.

    What with the advent of genetic engineering, sure, why not?

    Rofflecopter.
    It's Fouquet's Madonna. The model was a French 14th Century king's mistress, and the look (high forehead, pale skin, plucked eyebrows) dominated fashion for about a century.
    My point was more that these things aren't universal.

    But my preference for pale seems to be in the minority.

    That's kinda the point. A lot of Goth, even Cyber, still takes its influence from Victorian fashion, and for a period the tuberculosis victim (no shit) was considered an epitome of feminine beauty -- pale, delicate, doomed.

    Sickness in this fashion is a sort of revolt against the prevailing norm in popular culture, that is being healthy.

    Of course, if this sort of fashion developed in the 19th century, the epitome of Goth would be a tanned beach bunny.

    A look that will one day make the 'girl next door' regret all that time in the sun. If skin cancer does not get her, the wrinkles will make her look like a dried up raisin.

    You made me snort with derision.

    Halle Berry was pretty. She fit outside the norm of what society deemed beautiful. Now she is just ordinary. Attractive yes. But she does not stand out from the crowd like she used to.

    Really, how so?

    But doesn't any interaction necessitate some sort and some level of compromising?
    Or are you the fiery princess, uncompromising, tough and free?

    Ah, then I find hybrid humans more interesting specimens.

    I know, you're more of a counter-culture groupie.

    Your "personal life"?

    What would I know about your personal life?

    I fold. You win...again.

    Most people are most attracted to their own race/ethnic group anyhow, i dont know what this poll would prove.

    I am not and was not.

    Race and how someone looks is somewhat individual in nature. Yes, you may find one particular race attractive, but at the end of the day, whether you find them sexually attractive or mentally attractive is another thing altogether.

    Right...again.

    I love the edit...but your original post is preserved.

    That response is fraught with underlying intentions and insinuations which makes my mouth water.

    Satyr:
    You're an expert in human nature, neh?

    You have an unhealthy hostility towards me.

    I don't know, you seem interested enough in attacking what you perceive as it. I posted cheesecake - as everyone else has - and you attack my alleged lesbian tendencies and accuse me of "seeking sexual validation."
    For whatever reason.

    Bells:
    Well, what? YOU don't go to clubs to "observe mating rituals?"
    I know that *I* go so that I can dress up in PVC, dull my mind with mind-enhancing drugs, and spank other girls to indulge my secret lesbian tendencies. Oh, and to post about it on the internet so that everyone will love me.

    Besides that - white boys are where it's at:

    You still don't realize you prefer your own race above others, you just think you don't.

    There are beautiful men and women in every race......Esp if you're
    pulling out models and celebrities. In general I prefer white men.
