Bible singers vs. breast implants (MDs also against such makeovers)
Toronto Star ^ | Jul. 25, 2005 | Jeff Bassett

Posted on 07/25/2005 4:09:55 PM PDT by Mrs. Don-o

PENTICTON, B.C.—Hours before a 22-year-old personal banker won a free set of breast implants, elderly churchgoers did their bit to change the minds of 36 contestants ....[Skipping the whole beginning, which was kinda irrelevant]

"[I]t's my body and I'm going to do whatever I want," said Tiffany Friesen between celebratory screams and gulps of champagne inside the club.

Names of all the contestants, most of whom were 19 or in their early 20s, were taped to a prize wheel for a chance at the $3,000 prize.

One by one they filed up on stage in mini skirts and tight dresses to spin the wheel, eliminating the girl whose name it landed on.

Friesen shrieked in disbelief when she was the last woman standing.

Other contestants... sulked, soothing their disappointment at the bar. They lost a chance at gaining self-confidence, many of them said.

Men at the club were astounded at the competition.

"They're all so beautiful. Every single one of the contestants is really good-looking. I don't get it," said Steve Jones, 32, who was visiting from Calgary.

"Natural is so much better. I want to tell all these girls, `don't do it!'"

Friesen, a slim, tanned woman from Fort St. John, said her good looks aren't enough for her.

"I was born really unlucky with this one part of my body. I've been wanting implants for five years ... It's going to be great," said Friesen.

Women's groups are worried that contestants in the Sextreme Makeover competition aren't thinking about the possible health risks associated with breast implants.

Breast implant surgery carries the same operative risks associated with many surgical interventions to implant a medical device. Health Canada says they can cause infection, hematoma, delayed wound healing and changes in sensation...

Another example of women turning themselves into surgically-altered, sexually denatured "things" in order to be what they think men want; as if they can become "self-confident" by rejecting and restructuring their own bodies into more-marketable commodities.

Will they also disconnect and disable their ovaries, fallopian tubes and wombs?

Will they also reject pregnancy as a disease and a baby as a waste product?

Would they dream of allowing their own sweet baby to have the warmth and bliss of drinking mama-milk from those cosmetically-perfect investments they carry on their chests?

Will they be mystified and miserable when they're in their thirties and they see in the mirror the sagging, bulges, wrinkles, grey hairs, and all the inevitable signs of bodily maturity?

And how much does anyone respect their souls?

Does anyone say, "I love you," "I cherish you," "I praise God for what you are"?

Poor girls. Competing to be Barbie dolls when they were created to be "a little less than the angels."

It's a choice that is theirs to make, misguided though it may be.

Oh my gosh, you draw ALL of those conclusions just because some women want breast implants?

That seems pretty judgmental.

I know a woman at work who was ... deprived ... in the mammary department. Pretty girl, sharp, clever, a lot of fun to be around. But flatter than a Kansas fairway. So she got implants.

I have to admit, they "curved" her up a little (not much really). But shortly afterward, she started putting on weight, copped an attitude, and is now a slob who eats her lunch all by herself.

And ironically, with all the weight she's put on, the new and improved hooters aren't even noticeable.

Her problem obviously wasn't her breasts. It was something far deeper.

I dunno. Ways of improving one's looks, and by that I mean what you think about yourself, have always been around.

So you think anyone considering any kind of cosmetic surgery is just a brainless twit who can only form an opinion based on what Hollywood says?

Perhaps some women do it because they want to, or because they think it looks better. Not everyone who gets a boob job has basketballs implanted.

I think to make generalizations is never a good idea.

And no, I've never had the surgery.

I'm with you on this one, teeny. I've never had the surgery, either, though after five babies, I'm sure thinking about it! LOL

Geez, speak for yourself. I'm well past my thirties and I don't have any of that stuff. Sagging, bulges, gray hair, wrinkles? Ech!

Barbie dolls Agree with everything you said except the Barbie Doll part. Barbie Dolls were fashion dolls and not created to have humans try to be like them. They were fantasy. How can any of these women say they are free and feminists when they do everything they can to attract themselves to men? It is the total opposite. Sounds to me like they are dependent on men to have to go to some of the lengths they go to to think they are attractive to men. Sad for them. They'll learn later in life and it will be too late. No sense talking to them...they know it all.

PS... men should know what they look like - and what women are inserting into their bodies to "make them prettier"! Yuck!

PSS...Stop calling Cyber Whore you Pervert!

I see nothing wrong with improvement along the way, if that is what you want. Most of the people I have seen who are so vehemently against cosmetic surgery either can't afford it or are to far gone to be helped.
