Like What You See?
Warning: This post is a bit graphic as well as a bit disturbing and may offend someone’s sensibilities…..please read at your own peril……
There are times when I read something while doing research that makes me shake my head and wonder what the Hell is going on in this world.
I could write a diatribe about the latest health care debate but why? There are enough experts here on WP that I do not need to put in my two cents…..but I will post on a medical thing…..
We humans spend a lot of time worrying about our appearance……but it is women that have the hardest time….are they too fat?…are their breast too big? Too small? Should they be blonde or brunette?
For us dudes our biggest concern is our ………penis.
You know when you were a teenage dude you were never happy with the size of your penis……we young guys spent a lot of time contemplating our “Johnson”…and we really never outgrow that fascination…..
It seems that women or should I say girls appear to be having a similar problem.
I bring this up because of something I read and something that I have written about in the past…..
My past post……
The more recent article…….
Doctors in the U.K say that girls as young as 9 years old are asking for surgery to change the look of their genitals.
Dr. Naomi Crouch, who is a gynecologist for adolescents, told the BBC that more and more girls under the age of 18 were seeking the surgery.
“Girls come in with comments, ‘I just hate it. I just want it removed. I just want it treated,’” she explained. “For a girl to feel that way about any part of her body, let alone a part that is intimate, is really upsetting.”
One girl told the BBC that she felt that her vagina “wasn’t neat enough or tidy enough. And I think I wanted it to be smaller.”
“Sometimes people around me were watching porn and stuff and I just had this idea that it should be symmetrical, and like not sticking out,” she said.
The British National Health Service reportedly performed more than 150 labiaplasties on girls under the age of 15 in 2015 and 2016.
“I find it very hard to believe there are 156 girls under the age of 15 who had a medical abnormality with the labia that meant they needed to have surgery,” Crouch remarked. “I think that’s extraordinary.”
“As a pediatric gynecologist, I have never seen a girl under the age of 15 who’s needed an operation on her labia,” she added.
It is hard to believe that a young girl would worry about breast size but what brought her to the point that leads to this turn?
Really? You do not put enough pressure on yourself to fit in as it were…..you feel you need to add this to the mix?
It is sad that we do this to ourselves……
What more can we say? Time to shut the day down and get some rest….please be well, be safe….chuq
