Venezuela and the Search for Beauty (Click to watch)
The above clip came with the statement that “within 5 seconds, you won’t like him. By the time he laughs, you’ll hate him.” I did on both counts, though hate is a strong word. If you watched it, you know what I am talking about.
My best friend and I eat out frequently when he is not in the fields. We talk about a lot of things, one of them is, of course, women. Our types differ a lot. One thing that is apparent on my part – I am not big into breasts. I don’t go wild over large ones. They just don’t do much for me.
As you could see in the clip, this does not seem to be the item in Venezuela. They do concentrate on breasts. I had a whole different topic in mind for this post until I watched the clip this morning and got a little hot under the collar. I don’t mind if people do things to themselves to try to increase their beauty. Tats can be very beautiful; changing a hairstyle, dyeing a different color or colors can be nice; some dieting, exercise can enhance a person’s natural beauty. I kinda draw the line at surgery. I don’t doubt that there are those few individuals who can only get better through surgery. Bariatric surgery does work when really needed. If a person is born or has an accident and becomes disfigured, I can see surgery for that. Breast cancer surgeries I can also understand. What I have issue with is the brutality that comprises even the mildest plastic surgery. I have watched the clips and films on plastic surgeries; they are horrible. The tearing, cutting, jerking of the tissues is bad enough; the liposuction is an ordeal. It is difficult even for this horror writer to watch. But, it reinforces in my mind how, nearly, medieval this practice is. Also, I watch the clips in which something goes wrong. If a breast implant should rupture, it’s just not a pretty picture and, I believe, can be dangerous.
To see women have surgery after surgery in order to “appear” beautiful is ridiculous in my mind. People are getting very spoiled and thinking that there is only one type of woman who is truly beautiful; that’s crap! Most women I know are beautiful in their own way. If we all felt more like this, think how it would affect everything.
Let me hear how you think and feel this would change everything!
