Oh hay remember that douchebag that told me it wouldn’t kill me to go tanning? This girl has the same skin condition that I do. Except because I’m so pale, mine isn’t nearly as visible. I’ve never seen someone who looks like me being viewed in such glamorous light. I’ve only seen people with my skin condition in medical journals and in public accompanied by people being rude and staring. This girl’s confidence is amazing. I’m a little misty-eyed.
My husband has Vitiligo, “the condition” this girl has. I’m amazed by the fact it hasn’t affected her face…. because his is not nearly as progressed like this on his body but he has lost pigment on his face in various places, including his eyelashes being white…. It just kind of annoys me to see it glamorized on a female that poses nude, yet my husband gets rude, shitty remarks about his “condition”. Just doesn’t seem fair.
I love that the condition is getting acknowledgement! my boyfriend has this and he is pale all over even his hair has lost pigment…KuDoS!
Auriga Suicide inspired a character in one of my upcoming books. VSS Book 5 to be exact. I’m so psyched to write Shalagh’s story.
