back now

yesterday
i wanted to write
but a thought was fizzling
around my head

and would not leave
damn, i just hate
when that happens

so
now
i'll fizzle this out
to you-all
and see where it
goes

i want to talk about
breasts

Note: guys please
come back from that
site
as i really do have
something to say here
smile

and no
it's not the topless equality
thingy

it's the fact that
our future generations
are dependent
on the breasts of this
generation

and

my concern is

breasts implants

did you know
they are
the third most commonly
performed cosmetic surgical
procedure in the United States?

every year upwards of 400,000
women get them

and women that get them
have a 73% higher
chance of
committing
suicide

uh - yep!

and

it greatly
reduces your
chance of
being able to use
them ~ the way nature
intended for them
to be used

breast-feeding our
future
generations

so i'll leave you
with this

if nature's perfect
food is not longer available
or so polluted with implant
chemicals
then how much longer
can this human population
exist?

and now for something completely different : Diane Arbus

I have never thought that implants look better than natural female breasts. I can tell the difference and I prefer natural. They don't look better, they look fake. (uh, not that I spend any time comparing them)

That's my view on makeup also. It doesn't make a women look better, it just make them look fake. It is a turn-off. A natural face is far more attractive than a plastic face.

Yeaaaa, u'r back. I don't think I've known many women with implants and such.

But one I know, she is a wild one for sure. Got in a bunch of trouble here and moved to Vegas, I wonder if she is still alive.

She is very smart and energetic, but does a lot of stupid things when drinking.

Anyway, I like them perky...... and ...... friendly. :-)

Wow! That was a lot of information I didn't know. I think it is sad that woman have to get implants in order to be beautiful. Just goes to show what a superficial society we are living in.

And you bring up an excellent question - how will this affect the human population? Doesn't look good to me.

I don't care if I end up looking like that old grandma cartoon from Playboy, you know, with tits that look like long tubes and point straight down to her knees, I will NEVER get implants. Will.Not.Happen.
Now, off to read the photog link.

I think the relationship between implants and suicide is correlational. That is, it may not be the implants causing the suicide but instead women with low self-esteem who then think they "need" implants are more likely to off themselves.

I love my small breasts. They were working breasts & nursed two children for around 2 years each. They look pretty durn good for working breasts!

I'm with Hill, never, ever will get implants. But I'm not suicidal either.

We still buy into the delusion that if we change the wrapping, the contents of the box will change.

It's not just implants, it's the popularity of shows like "Extreme Makeover" or "How do I look?"

You can pour shine into a Chivas Regal bottle, but it's still shine.

Kvatch said...

Well...I think that I'd have to say that I'm a boob-Frog, but all natural for me please.

Mike said...

AZ, that stat about women that have had transplants and suicide just makes one sick.

As for me, au natural please. Regardless of size, a woman should be proud of them the way nature intended.

I like Diane Arbus' work, too. I'll bet she would have liked this post :)

case w is right, you can change the outside, but you're still left with the real you, a lot more difficult to change than a lift or a tuck. I personally do not like to tinker with the body I've been given, the only thing I've had done, and that took some courage, was having my ears pierced!! I've always thought my breasts are too big to be fashionable (difficult to find clothes that 'hang' properly) - someone I know had a breast reduction but that is extreme in my view. Hublet likes me the way I am, beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

Cosmetic surgery is big business now. Any person embarking on surgery for purely cosmetic reasons needs counselling before taking such a step. There were instances of children in the UK dying from having ears remodelled because they were being bullied at school. It's time to celebrate the differences, not bully everyone into being the 'same'.

Great links btw.

I forgot to say, the French have always advertised things to help look after breasts, like cups made for covering the breast and hosing them with cold water as part of a beauty treatment!! They don't have the hang-ups of the British who only see breasts in porno mags, female bodies are admired and celebrated here in France.
