I'm pale and I get compliments for it, lol. Especially in the sun, when I'm wearing a T-shirt and the sun hits me, I positively glow, reflecting all the light onto nearby stuff. It's weird.
I think being pale is sexy so I wouldn't think someone wearing shorts and being pale would be a bad thing. I don't think there is anything wrong with being yourself and besides, you should never let societies preconceptions stop you from expressing yourself. :)
Besides, the only way they'll stop being so pale is if you expose them to more sunlight. So pop on the sun-tan lotion and...wear shorts. :)
Bonus piece of useless info: people consider legs worse than arms for being pale because instead of pale, you think pasty. Doesn't get out much, is always covered up, not looked after, and possibly a result of you being underfed, weak and unhealthy. It's just..something that dragged over from the 20th century, I guess.
You shouldn't worry about it too much. People have strong opinions, and sometimes, it makes them turn into morons. :)
