To your 30's you worry what people think of you;
To your 50's you don't care what people think of you
After that you realize that nobody's been thinking of you.

So slap on those big baloney tits if you want them - there are fewer than 12 million well titted women in America, but big cans on an ugly girl are just that -it won't cure everything.

You know what I find funny is that with all the righteous indignation there is against breast implants on every Fark thread that has anything remotely to do with them... the surgery gets more and more popular every year. I can guarentee you that by the time you've finished reading this post a new pair of D cups have been born someplace in the world.

So what is it? Are we all in harmony denouncing the evils of big fake boobies? Or are atleast half of us lying sacks of shiat that only denounce the over ripe techno-melons because we believe (falsely) that some cute girl will read our erstwhile Fark post and email us wanting to give us huge sloppy blowjobs for being such a "feminist"?

I wonder!

wow, women that have underlying self-worth problems commit suicide more often? Amazing.
 
2006-08-19 07:54:49 AM
And since more breast impanted women die young the cancer and heart disease rate goes down. Wow, simply wow.

I hope this study cost a lot of money since the results where really worth it. Here comes the science!

I don't think amount of boobage has anything to do with chance of breast cancer.

Sure it does. The risk of cancer of any type is proportional to the number of cells that could become cancerous. Think of it this way: If you had two stadiums, one holding a thousand people and another holding a million, everything else being equal, in which crowd is there more likely to be just one person with a bomb? Genetics, exogenous hormones, pregnancy history, and other things are also important, but more cells means more chance of cancer. That's not even taking into account the effect of each cell on its neighbors due to metabolites and other factors, but large breasts obviously had cell division at a faster rate or over a longer period of time to get to be larger. Cancer is just a error in cell division.

germaniac: Women who are willing to ruin their perfectly good set of tits are crazy? Who kn

Not always a good set being replaced. We focus on the pam anderson types, but a lot of the implants go to masectomy patients.

It's not really any of my business if a woman gets them done or not. I am curious to handle them. If they're real-looking and don't feel to weird, I wouldn't have a problem with it.

If I were a woman, the only reason I'd get implants is if I had big hips and a small chest. I'd probably want to balance that equation out.
 
2006-08-19 10:03:41 AM
Aside from the obvious use of breast implants by mastectomy patients, could women who get breast implants in the first place be aleady depressed about their percieved body image?

It's not the breast implants that CAUSE suicide, it's the depression that leads to breast implants that does.

/duh!

I have fake boobs.

So I am really getting a kick out of most of these replies.

Most of you are really good at making yourselves seem like you know what you're talking about, but trust me: You don't.

I think you are just trying to make yourselves sound smart, when in reality you don't know what you are talking about.

This is how bad info gets passed around.

If you don't know about the topic, don't make yourselves sound like you do.

Cos some flat-chesters believe anything they read.

Shame on all of you! Women only get fake boobs to succeed in our unfairly masculine world! You're all to blame for each of their deaths!

Not all women get implants in order to look like an "inflate to 90 psi" freak. Some women get them because they've had radical mastectomies. While that doesn't bode well for potential suicide, its not the same kind of mindset that drives one to self mutilation solely for the sake of chasing an unattainable "ideal" appearance.

/like a stripper
/loved the comment about the ex's stripper daughter.
/reminded me of the family guy episode:
"We've had fun making jokes about killing strippers . . . most of them are dead inside already."
/most of the strippers I've ever met were man-hating lasbians, and yes . . . . dead inside already

Dammit, soze, I came in here with the sole intention of posting "correlation != causation" and you beat me to it. Get outta my head, please.
 
2006-08-19 11:58:25 AM
I think fake boobs are not good because who the hell would let some doctor take a scalpel to their breasts? EEEEEEEKKKKKKKKK!

I understand if you had a mastectomy or have one which are too large with not strong enough ligaments to support them but otherwise if they are healthy, DON'T CUT THEM UP!

you don't have to be a student of boobenhancement to be able to recognize that most boobenlargers have some real self-worth issues. life experience is all that is necessary.

can't remember who said women commit suicide more, too lazy to sift through the thread. however, more women attempt suicide while more men complete. men choose more lethal means, too. one of the biggest risk factors in evaluating someone's potential for attempting/completing is being male, unmarried and over 40.
 
2006-08-19 01:46:46 PM
ok, so that's three risk factors.
 
2006-08-19 02:11:35 PM
preshrink: If you're male, unmarried, and over 40, then you probably have given up on being able to find love in life, and ending it all makes real sense.

FTFA
Poorer self-esteem and elevated rates of depression and other psychiatric disorders ARE COMMON among women who opt for breast augmentation AND ELECTIVE COSMETIC SURGERY.

Plastic surgeons SHOULD refer implant AND OTHER COSMETIC SURGERY seekers for mental health consultation when they suspect the patients are at high risk of a psychiatric disorder or suicide STEP INTO THEIR OFFICES.

I know one thing for sure: breast implants can be linked to why I started talking to my girlfriend in the first place. Eventually I found out that there is a kickass woman attached to the implants too. ;)

/no, no pics for you
//not yours
 
2006-08-19 03:22:37 PM
Natural boobies here. Have a small-boobied girlfriend who was thinking about getting implants until I told her what it's really like to have a d cup. Now she's happy with her natural size.

I'll just go look at pictures of someone else then. I would have been unlikely to stick with pictures of just one person anyway.
 
2006-08-19 04:47:39 PM
It's double sad to think that these women only got the implants to get the attention and affection of all, and are now such the target of social joking that they probably go insane just thinking about the sacrifices they made to get those damned cursebags.


I guess you can't cheat afterall. I personally don't like my womens with makeup. It's cheating.
 
2006-08-19 08:48:05 PM
Wow. It's like when you're watching a show, and they interrupt it for breaking news? Except it's like we were watching CNN, and they interrupted it for Nip/Tuck.
 
2006-08-20 12:09:28 AM
I would never go out with a woman who's had breast implants. It shows either a complete lack of self-confidence and grasp of reality, in terms of what is important in life, or a horrible shallowness...and in either case I would feel nothing but pity for the poor thing.
 
2006-08-20 12:15:17 AM
Also, I just remembered, in context of this thread, that I am seeing a beautiful woman tomorrow night whose breasts are real and spectacular.

But the reason I'm going out with her is that she's funny and smart and tough and soft and real. She knows that I care for her spirit, not just her big boobs, after a year of flirting and being friends we are finally getting together.

Women who think big boobs will solve everything should talk to women who already have them. You'll get lots of attention, sure, but from whom?
 
2006-08-20 12:23:17 AM
My current GF is A-cup.
I like them just fine, and I would be dismayed if she got fakies. Not that she ever would, she's a confident sort. Thank goodness.

/Previous GF was D-Cup. Those were nice too.

... Some women get them because they've had radical mastectomies...


I've never understood this. Yes, I know, losing a boob would be traumatic. But why would you want to fark with your boobies after treatment where there are so many risks and problems involved with the implants too?

Oh my boobs had problems, so I'm going to put implants in. WTF?

Now that I think about it, I wonder if lumpectomy/masectomy surviors with implants have a higher incidence of re-occouring cancer than patients without implants?
