Dark-Skinned Woman Asks Men If They Would Marry A Dusky Woman, Gets Supportive Responses

In Indian society, there’s an obsession with fair skin. The massive lucrative market for fairness creams and treatments serves as proof. This fixation extends to dating and marriage, particularly in arranged setups, where fair complexion is often preferred. Darker-skinned individuals, particularly women, encounter discrimination – sometimes even within their own families.

Which is probably why a user on Reddit took to r/AskReddit to ask if people would choose to marry a dark-skinned woman because fair skin is more often than not associated with ‘beauty’ and ‘status’.

“Grew up getting bullied by everyone at school. Family almost made me kill my self. Men treated me like temporary GF. Got cheated on. Now seeing the hate towards dark-skinned women makes me really worry. I know my self-worth is not defined by men but I want a normal life too,” she wrote.
