Relocate to Foreign women[edit]

It just sounds better, and it fits the glossary entry. Fuzzy. Cat. Potato! (talk/stalk) 03:19, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Last of the Summer Wine[edit]

What would 'these chaps' make of the women presented in Last of the Summer Wine, who dominate their husbands? (This cultural attitude is based on the historical situation where the men would be down t' pits and the women would have to run everything else.) (talk) 15:13, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

"Yellow fever"[edit]

Um, if yellow fever is "inherently a problematic term", why are we even using it? Or did the person who inserted that remark mean to say that people who "have yellow fever" have committed some kind of Mortal Sin Against Social Justice? Because if so, they should make that clear.--Greenrd (talk) 20:30, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

Skin whitening[edit]

It needs to be pointed out that skin whitening or the *desire* to have whiter akin pre-dates colonialism and is actually rooted in classism - tanned skin was seen as a sign of manual outdoor labour. Not suggesting that the present day trend of skin whitening is a white western influence in part but traditionally it is not.-- (talk) 17:55, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

Also, the focus of this being that white guys are the ones with Asian fetishes is dishonest. As an overseas Chinese woman I have been sexually harassed by black people, Turks (Turks are some of the worst) and Arabs. -- (talk) 17:59, 1 April 2018 (UTC)
conversly, white folk getting a tan isnt considered to some kind of blacking up, and being pale is generally considered to be not ideal. the whole whiter skin = rich and darker(or redder in alot of cases) skin = poor, works in the fields thing used to be common in europe too. then air travel became more common and having a tan was seen as proof you'd somewhere hot and thus wealthy AMassiveGay (talk) 19:33, 1 April 2018 (UTC)
