Snip snip

The NYT column about female genital plastic surgery that's making the rounds of the feminist blogosphere is really iinsightful and funny and poigniant, and it makes you think about what a bizarre society we live in. Definitely read it. But I have a question. How in the world are people so insecure that they will fall for this kind of bullshit? I have my body issues, but I’d never consider hacking at my hoo-hah to make it prettier. I’m not mad that the designer vagina concept exists, I’m mad that people are in poor enough shape that they’ll go for it. We don’t need to make this surgery illegal, we need to make people more secure and happy with themselves.

Aside: I sure am having a ranty day, aren't I?
