boob jobs

i wrote a way-too-long comment in my friend jk's blog earlier, so i thought i should copy it over here and let all my hard work see the light of day. he was asking the question, do all girls consider and/or talk to their friends about the idea of getting boob jobs?

my response (slightly edited):

i'll bet that every small-breasted girl has at least thought about it. but whether it would enter the realm of consideration (or conversation) depends on her politics, self-respect, insecurity, aesthetics, experiences (affirmation vs. humiliation), etc.

for instance, i'm sure i would be a typical candidate physically (32A), but my politics (feminism) and aesthetics (indie/hipster) and personal desire to maintain my self-esteem au naturel preclude it from being something i'd either consider or even admit to considering. fakies just look make a girl look like she's trying so hard, which is way uncool.

in my personal experience, the reactions of others have ranged from appreciative (even fetishizing), to neutral, to negative (although that's mostly just limited to the mean boys in my 6th-grade class who i'll hate til my dying day), so they pretty much cancel one another out -- leaving me to rely mostly on politics and aesthetics to prop up my commitment to my unenhanced form.

but who knows, maybe when i'm old i'll become less cute and more insecure and that will tip the balance. it's a lot easier to proclaim your allegiance to the feminist battle against the unrealistic, unfair physical standards that make women everywhere hate themselves when you happen to be young & thin & relatively cute already.

    You know, small tits are really nice. You can go without a bra, which is much sexier than huge fake tits.

    Fake tits look good when clothed, but totally hilarious naked, generally.

    If you really want to betray your feminist roots, have vaginal enhancement/restoration/whatever they're calling it these days. Ha!

    I concur with Chris. Most boob jobs are shoddily done and look atrocious. Natural women are hands down sexier than any overblown porn star.

    google the terms "silocone holocaust"

    the website I am thinking of is called something like ""

    you will never consider stuffing your torso with that crap again.

    trust me...have a look and then let the boob job thoughts go...forever.

    you don't need that kind of hell in your life.

    Hmm, though the progressive, yet anonymous ('cept for you chris, props), men here claim fakies have no appeal, i bet they're the same ones executing involuntary double takes when a well-endowed girl walks by and perhaps even approaching or treating some of these girls differently than the endowment-challenged among us. Without even realizing it. Think about it. I'm right, aren't I. It does make a difference to the attention lavished on a girl and for some, that's all they want. It's validating to many. Sadly.
