No, Really?

I’m sorry, but this really doesn’t seem like such a big news flash to me. I mean, come on. Women get boob jobs because there is something about themselves that they don’t like, or that they’re trying to improve upon. Hellllloooo? Of course self-esteem is an issue. Now, before you go off the deep end, I fully support anyone’s right to choose plastic surgery; it’s just that it doesn’t make much sense to me. I have a good friend who had her breasts enlarged. She was gorgeous before, and she was gorgeous after. I’m simply more of a believer in the “God made you this way for a reason” philosophy. Plus, everybody is different, and that’s what makes us all individuals. True, I know I sound like a Hallmark ad, but let’s face it: If you don’t like yourself, just how you are, then other people are going to have a hard time liking you. Do I wish I were taller and thinner, with better skin and hair that would actually behave? Sure. Everybody has days like that. But at least I feel fairly confident that I am an awesome person, even if I’m not a size 6. This study makes me sad, mostly because, as women, I thought we had finally progressed beyond caring what society and the marketing industry thinks we should be. You want plastic surgery? Go ahead. That’s the beauty of living in this society, as well as the power of being human: You have free will. But please don’t look down upon me because I am making the conscious decision to focus more on developing my intellect than my boobs. That is all. I’ll climb down from my soapbox now.

    Well said, but I just want to go on record as saying I’m supportive of everyone’s right to pursue happiness. If people want big boobs, that’s just gonna have to be OK with me. :wink
