Frank in the swamps ??Who WAS the 'Brown Girl' (41) RE: ??Who WAS the 'Brown Girl' 08 Feb 00

Malcom is right, when common folk worked outdoors, pale skin was the sign of a leisured lady. With the advent of the industrial era, common folk began to work indoors, only the wealthy could afford to lay about in the sun and the skin preference changed..white=worker, tan=rich. In societies subject to famine, fat is still attractive.

Frank i.t.s.
