Yep, it's that time of year again -- to line up at the tanning beds. I just wanted to start a discussion about this. Why do women and some men feel the need to have a tan? What's wrong with fair skin? My skin is very fair and I've contemplated putting on fake tanning lotion to look tan, just because I guess, but part of me just wants to be pale and say fuck it. Tanning beds are very unhealthy and have been linked to skin cancer as well as too much sun exposure. I just wanted thoughts and comments on this, thanks.
