Face, Breasts, Genitals, Buttocks: Mutilation or Your Right On To "Feel Better About Yourself"?
You, Your Daughters, Your Sons, And Centuries Of Future Generations All Are Effected By Today's Pop Trends. It is time to wake up.
Many of you cringingly (not a word, but can't you just feel it?) have written or phoned in that you have never even heard of such procedures as we discuss today on Dr. Michelle Live!
And yet, these "elective" procedures and their complications and sometimes lifetime altering consequences are increasing world wide at alarming rates in teens ages 13-18.
Facts tell a story. History tells a story.
All culturally sanctioned mutilation stories begin somewhere and many become accepted traditions over time. Most fall to "future" civilizations to judge as disgusting, inhumane, heart rendering and just plain atrocious. Are you involved in this very phenomenon right here, right now in the U.S. in 2016?
A popular website is quoted:
"In 2014, the A.C.O.G. re-upped a critical 2007 committee opinion on labiaplasty, stating that there is a “lack of data supporting the efficacy of these procedures and their potential complications”:
" It is deceptive to give the impression that vaginal rejuvenation, designer vaginoplasty, revirgination, G-spot amplification, or any such procedures are accepted and routine surgical practices. Absence of data supporting the safety and efficacy of these procedures makes their recommendation untenable. Patients who are anxious or insecure about their genital appearance or sexual function may be further traumatized by undergoing an unproven surgical procedure with obvious risks."
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery stated in an interview with the The New York Times they've seen an 80 percent increase in one year, 2015 over 2014 in labiaplasty alone among younger women, 18 and under. We discuss sources who report that some of those surgeries are performed on girls as young as 13. We are not talking about malformations resultant from injury, birth defects, or environmental causes.
Where do you fit into this? If you are female or male, or gender not specified…..you really have a place in this. We all shape the culture and the future. We also introduce turning the conversation juxtaposed to Our Theology of The Body. Meet up, Join in Today on Dr. Michelle Live!
