Am I asking for negative male attention if I wear something that shows off my body?In the messages I got while this persona was up, I was heavily fetishized.Responses mentioning a love for darker women, black women, or big butts were common.When I saw fellow Bustle writer Marie Southard Ospina's OKCupid experiment looking at how people responded to her dressing as different "types" on the site -- goth, retro, natural -- I couldn't help but wonder how the results would be different for me as a black woman. THE RULES I changed the pictures on my profile once a week, allowing enough time for new people to register the change.The information on my profile always remained the same; the only thing that changed was the pictures.
