surgical treatment in an attempt to curtail the abuse

You're doing it wrong.
 
2012-09-03 10:14:46 AM
Screw you. You don't have to do it on your child, but don't tell someone else they can't help a kid feel better about themselves

Obviously it's too late for them, but can we just sterilize the kid now to prevent future spread of these genes?

Nadia was treated to $40,000 worth of surgery by the Little Baby Face Foundation, a New York non-profit organisation that offers procedures free for needy children with facial birth defects.


Originally called the Big Stupid Baby Head Foundation.


And to theage.com.au: good job on giving readers the option not to play the video. Seriously, well done.

i blame mothers for bullying.

if i followed all the advice my mom gave me growing up i'd probably become gay and/or bullied.

thankfully i stuck to my guns

Wow, if only she had a professional make up team every day! Then she'd never feel ugly!

FTFA: Nadia, who had her ears pinned back and nose and chin reshaped, lives in a trailer with her single mother and brother, who has cerebral palsy.

So.... now that she's cute but still poor the teasing will be replaced with sexual harassment?

She caved, now they know she is weak, there is blood in the water,

Now they will mock her for getting the surgery.
And pick a bunch of new stuff to go after her about, and she thought things were hell before....

Too bad they can't give the bullies even grosser imperfections than their victims -- let THEM suffer the surgery. "Yeah, give him a nose like a NAZI Jewish poster Jew. That way he won't complain about HER nose." "This one? She's a real biatch. How about a harelip to shut her up? Done and done."

Bullies can't help it, either they are born with sadistic tendencies and a lack of impulse control or their parents are abusive and/or enabling scum. Either way, they should really just be mercifully destroyed.

Even more importantly, the little 'beta males' following them around need to die as well.

I can't wait until this poor girl goes back to school and gets taunted for electing to get plastic surgery.

I seriously doubt this will fix the root of the problem, which is that children are hurtful.

From TFA:

''[Now] I feel beautiful, I feel better about myself,'' she said before returning to face her classroom tormentors. ''It's going to be nervous at first, but I think I can pull through and that they'll realise what they've done and that they'll stop.''

Good luck with that. I'm sure you are right. They'll all realize what bad people they are and fall at your feet begging for mercy as they bask in your new surgical glory.

Plastic surgeons could give kids a discount if they'll bully other kids to make them come in.

I'd like to drop-kick that plastic surgeon in the face for instilling in this young lady the idea that superficiality is the best tool against bullying.

Her parents did that. The surgeon is just taking her parents money in order to teach her that surgery won't stop people from being assholes.

Is anyone else disturbed that she got 40k in free plastic from a foundation that is supposed to help with facial deformities? I mean, her old face was sort of awkward looking, but it's not like she had a cleft lip or missing a nostril.

What a waste of charity money.

I hate how bullying is the new buzzword for anything that makes some one feel badorsays something negative about someone. The world needs bullies in a way. The bullies just need to be limited. When we were on a cruise a month or so ago, and every day we'd see these gigantic fat blobs rolling around on those slow scooters eating ice cream cones. One had a XXXXXL T-shirt/bedsheet that said "I may be fat but you're ugly and I can lose weight." They needed the motivation via shame that only bullies can bring, if only for their own health and well being. Social expectations can be a powerful force for personal change, and USA needs that, or else we'll let ourselves turn into 70's Elvises.

When i was in HS one girl who had the classic witch nose hook came back after one summer having had a nose job.

It helped. She looked ok after that. Indeed a few of my friends ended up in bed with her.

I dunno... she does have those inbred hill billy ears. .... For her...

I'mokwiththis.jpg

Whats jacked up is while she gets tens of thousands in surgery donations other kids in the school probably don't have clothes or enough to eat. But whatever. It's the US.
 
2012-09-03 10:54:34 AM
So when the bullying shifts from her appearance to the fact that she lives in a trailer, is some other charity going to step in and give her family a house and help her mom find a job with a 6-figure salary?
 
2012-09-03 10:55:06 AM
If they let the bullying victims get in a good punch or two on their bullies without calling in psychiatrists and issuing suspensions school bullying would drop off.

2012-09-03 11:08:57 AM
Now she has a license to bully kids who don't get their imperfections fixed through plastic surgery. I can imagine the conversations she's going to initiate with her new found confidence:

"As your friend, I'm telling you that I think you should get your nose fixed. Don't take this the wrong way. I had plastic surgery myself, and it was the best thing I ever did. Why would you want to stay ugly?"

The real solution to bullies is parenting. Teach your kids not to be rotten little bastards and not to hang out with other rotten little bastards, or there will be consequences.
 
2012-09-03 11:10:51 AM
The girl doesn't look like she is a fat ass, which means she should be among the top 25% in attractiveness for her class. Usually the more attractive kids don't get bullied.

Can plastic surgery help beat bullies?

Sure. In the same way that giving your wallet to the mugger stops the mugging...

You know what does help stop bullying? Beat the crap out of them. If you can't take them in a fair fight, don't fight them fair. Make sure they understand that there's more waiting for them if they don't fark off.

All kids go through an awkward stage, mine ended in my early twenties. 14 is about 4 years too young for this. Who knows after puberty is completely done she may have filled out and look decent.

fluffy2097 responded: oh yes. The solution to bullying is parenting other peoples children... ಠ_ಠ

Well... my parents instilled a set of values in me as a kid and taught me how to treat others with respect. So, I never felt the urge to bully or pick on other kids. Likewise, my friends have kids who aren't bullies because they taught them right from wrong.

On the other hand, the parents of bullies I knew in school, were usually also loudmouth bully douchebags themselves, who didn't have a moral compass, and never taught their kids right from wrong. There are exceptions to the rule, but I haven't personally met any.

It's the more attractive kids that are the bullies!

Good night. That seems like the worst possible solution. People need to understand that bullies are bullies because they love the power that comes with intimidation and abuse. Changing your look doesn't matter to a bully- that may be why they started to bully, but it's not why it continues. It continues because they like to hurt you and they know that you're an easy target. Unless this girl learns to change how she reacts to bullies, I don't see anything changing- now she'll just be "that ugly girl who got surgery to try and make her look better," or whatever.

Not only that, but getting surgery just reinforces the idea that you're only as good, or human or wonderful as your looks at an age when insecurity rules. How will this young woman deal with problems in the future? By changing herself or by doing what she's been taught to do- change her appearance?

Bullying can and should be dealt with- but school administrators will never end up. Fundamentally it is the responsibility of the bullied to fight back, or the responsibility of the parents to remove that child from the situation altogether.

1. Children usually embody society's standards when they judge people.
2. They are bad at keeping it to themselves.
3. The girl was homily looking before the surgury.
4. Auto play video? fark you.
