In FoxNews Health today, is a video story about teenage girls getting cosmetic surgery as a graduation present.
Does this strike you as unethical or something? I mean, an 18 yr old girl isn’t finished developing. She hasn’t filled out here or slimmed up there yet. When I was 18, I wore an A-cup bra. Yes, a set of C’s would have been nice, and I eventually got them, but if I had jumped the gun and gotten them a 18, would I be as happy with the results today?
And why do we have a society that encourages a young woman to be displeased with herself to the point where she’s willing to go to such drastic measures? And why are her parents going along with this?
Why is this any different from getting braces or having your ears pinned back? Sure, I can see rhinoplasty or breast reduction if it’s causing problems, but liposuction? breast augmentation?
Why is it so damned important to be beautiful? What ever happened to sending a girl to finishing school so she could be accomplished?
What ever happened to focusing on a young womans character, instead of her nose?
Why does Paris Hilton get even more popular, for having a DUI and going to jail for it?
Would someone please explain to me WHY?
