Isn't "Natural Breast Augmentation" and oxymoron?

Great letter, couldn't agree more.

BTW - Where are the usual commentors and their cries regarding sex in the media?
Strangley silent on this one...
or does it only apply when complaining about democrats and hollywood?

I put those Breast Augmentation billboards plastered up all over Zion a full 5 clicks higher on the list of offensive media,
over places like strip clubs like Nothern X-posure, Lingerie boutiques, R-rated movies, and Television.

I can avoid and restrict those, the billboards along the I-15 corridore I can't.

I have two daughters. The body images our children digest are obscene not simply if they are highly immodest (let's leave that for another day) but also because they "teach" an unnatural and unobtainable body standard (unobtainable at least without surgery).

Watch some pre-1960s movies. The women tended to be either curvaceous OR slim. Now we have the Hollywood (hence, our) gold standard of an incredibly slim woman who still has significant curves.

Go to the average high school (where most girls have hopefully yet to have surgery). Just looking at their faces, ask yourself how many out of each hundred girls could fit the Hollywood standard? Not how many are attractive, but how many could meet that standard with only what God and nature gave them? Few.

We are promoting a standard of beauty that is not found in nature. That says quite a bit about us (unfortunately).

Woman are absolutely beautiful as they are. It is really sad that we have a culture that, somehow, makes some women think they need to be, uh, bigger, to be attractive to men. Women, and young women, its a lie. Be true to yourselves. You guys are beautiful just as you are! Tell anyone that tells you that you need larger, uh, you know, to go straight to. . . Well, you get the idea. There are plenty of great guys that dig you just the way you are. And even there, remember, you don't need the approval of ANY man. And you sure don't need me telling you anything. WOMEN ROCK !

Great letter, and as the father of two girls, very much needed.
