It's so hard in this day and age to know what to be outraged about, and that's why we created the column "Is This Offensive?" This week, we've got Ukranian beauty Natasha Blasick painted all over with black and red body paint, leading me to wonder if there's something offensive about all of this.

For the record, I don't get outraged over things like this, but it really pumps some people's nads to get righteously indignant about things, and seeing a white woman paint herself black seems like just the sort of thing that might inflate one's testicles. I think Natasha Blasick managed to dodge any sort of major controversy by stopping the body paint at her neck. Had she gone into full blackface, there'd be no question that folks were going to be outraged.

As it stands, however, it's just a gorgeous Ukranian woman with a red dress painted onto her body, and any areas below her neck that remained flesh colored were then covered with black. Natasha Blasick might just have figured out where the line is and walked right up to it, daring folks to get outraged. I can't wait to see what people have to say about this in the comments section below!
