Ewww, how awful! That kind of ignorance is difficult to be around. When I was a teenager, (before there were websites like this!) in magazines there was so much stuff that could make you feel ashamed of who you are and the way you look-- it wasn't just about straight hair, but there were even articles about how to make your nose look smaller, your lips look smaller, (always using Black models), how to get rid of freckles. In Teen and Seventeen. I try to seek out the positive when I see something offensive like that, just like you're doing by posting on this board.
