Breast implants nothing to do with men?

Recommended Posts

"So thumping on to young women about how they should reject plastic surgery because it treats them like lumps of meat, when the thrust of culture is to treat both men and women this way, makes no sense. And yet, even while I am pro-objectification, I am still against boob jobs, as like diets, and all other kinds of surgery, the aim is to make everyone look the same. And if we are all aspiring to exactly the same model of beauty, it makes us a hell of a lot easier to sell things to. The truth about sex is that everyone's triggers are different, and even if you run a very broad church, your visual and sexual stimuli are not going to be exactly the same as your friend's. This is fine as, from a species perspective, it encourages genetic diversity and ensures that we all get laid. It's only if you're using sex to sell other things, or attempting to sell sex itself in some mass-market medium like porn, that you need to make attractiveness homogenous like this.

 

So the argument against breast enlargement is not really a feminist one - it has more in common with the anti-globalisation movement. We don't please men by all trying to be the same shape, we please corporations. We make commodities of ourselves. It really has nothing to do with sex at all; it's like getting a Nike tick tattooed across your face."

I think that's really just a rehash/reinvent of the old "personality" argument.

 

Although it's probably also got a bit of truth to it, as I suspect if Posh or Beckham et al got Nike tattooed across their face you'd be seeing a lot of other idiots with it too. :lol:

to play devils advocate a second. It's peoples bodies and they can do whatever they like with them, be it breast augmentation, tatooing, scarring or extreme body modifications.

Yup, I'd say the right to be an idiot (or not) is a sacred one. Except for wearing replica football shirts to weddings, that should be banned (and the people involved quietly euthanasied). :lol:

The new versions are much better they use soya bean oil so leakage is no longer a massive health issue apparently.
