Anti-plastic surgery arguments are bullshit. I don't mean not wanting it. There's nothing wrong with not wanting it for yourself: Plenty of people aren't ugly enough to justify the cost. But the argument that there's something intrinsically 'wrong' about is a load of horse dicks.
I've found that women who are philosophically against cosmetic surgery fall into two camps:
- Beautiful women who are being condescending. To them, plastics have crossed an arbitrary line of vanity and must be looked down upon. They think that one should be comfortable with who they are, but they lack the empathy to understand life as a (very) ugly woman. You know the hot guy who advises ugly kids to just 'be themselves'? It's the female equivalent- just an insidious form of egocentricism disguised as something else (see: humblebrag)
- Ugly women who are being condescending. They spin narratives about how plastics are fake, or not their true selves. Fat women defeminize skinny women in a similar way; “Beyonce doesn't look like a real woman.” The derision of beautiful people always comes from a place of insecurity, the question is whether that place is fat, ugly, or both.
Some of these women think they are against plastic surgery because it's unnatural. It's the most common argument, and also the most intellectually lazy. In case anybody reading this is a dunce, or is the mentally deficient result of being malnourished by vegan parents, the idea that natural is good and unnatural is bad is not logically sound or valid. Plenty of natural things plain suck or are overrated. Female body hair, pimples and vaginal odor are natural and nobody's championing those. Would you really want to go back to a time where the only girls you could fuck didn't use unnatural things like tampons, soap, and razors? UGH, just put a dick in my mouth right now.
Even the wonderful aspects of natural female form really only go so far when it comes to visual aesthetics. If they natural beauty could get anywhere interesting, then why have females been doing unnatural things to themselves for thousands of years? Corsets, french manicures, douching, mascara, eye liner, tattoos, hair curlers. Think all this is just because we're fucked up by media? The primitive ones fuck themselves up the most!
"It's not vain when black people do it, it's part of their culture," thought every liberal in America.
The only guys that claim to prefer all-natural are the ones that don't know how much make up it takes to get that look. Every hot girl that you saw today was wearing make up. Most of the ugly girls, too. And then add twenty minutes of hair bullshit every morning on top of that. Cosmetics don't just mask flaws, they enhance features. That's why hot girls use them too.
Makeup isn't the only lie, just the biggest one. The charade continues at the teats. Wearing a bra is like blood doping in the Tour De France. It's incredibly effective and everyone does it. Stacked women can hide ALL of their sag and asymmetry. Flat women deceive others with cups of padded lies. Have you ever hooked up with some flat chick with a $40 wonder bra? It feels worse than taking home a tranny and finding out she's post-op.
The dominance of unnatural beauty is vastly superior to untouched beauty and the evidence of this is so prevalent, so in your face every second of the day that seeing an average female in her natural state is enough to make me want to suck a dick.
For people with objectively ugly features like bad skin, big nose, asymmetry, droopy eyes, looking 'tired' all the time (common euphemism for “ugly”), underbite, masculine jaw, eyes too close together, or even worse, too far apart, why not take advantage of plastic surgery in a country where it's cheap, safe, and effective? Ugliness is a permanent problem, so it calls for a permanent solution.
It's perfectly acceptable for someone with a cleft lip, burn scars, or lazy eyes to get corrective surgery. These are cosmetic surgeries that improves the patient's obejctive attractiveness and their self esteem. People even donate to charities just for kids with cleft lips to get surgery. Are other forms of ugliness any less tragic? Of course not, the distinction between what's vain and what's not is an arbitrarily judgmental, illogical one.
The fact that women can choose to improve their self esteem and appearance with surgery is not an issue to me, nor should it be to anyone. More people need to recognize and admit their flaws instead of bringing down people who don't have them. I'm not a plastic surgery fetishist (although fake tits are amazing and I hope in the future they're made of chrome and produce milk and cocaine and you can play Connect Four on them and shit), and I don't see it as an absolutely good thing. Modern humanity is hyper-exposed to print, and now digital media and there is no going back. Our brains are rewired to perceive the world, and each other in unrepresentative ways that have a profound impact on our feelings. I view plastic surgery is a realistic solution to an ever-worsening problem.
