sometimes things get under your skin, and you don’t notice it at first, but then it erupts, and it’s the only thing you can see on your face,even though everything else looks great.
Speaking of which: I read ACNE paper today. It has beautiful shoots and thought provoking articles and interviews I’ve been thinking about all day.
However, about 100 pages in, I realized I hadn’t seen a woman of color…and it kinda got under my skin.
The issue this time is about female actors (or actually, people who act as women)….and one would think that women of all kinds act as women of all kinds. In the approximately 300 pages, there wasn’t a single asian, black, indigenous, latina, or semitic woman pictured. There was a short article about an african-american actress who lived a parallel life to Marilyn Monroe….but that was it.
Ignoring the women who portray the majority of women in the world is gross.
Way grosser than a big nasty zit in the middle of your face.
