You might have heard about this already as this is quite old news, but it really got me thinking about my role as a wife, mother, and woman. Here’s a story that’s gotten a lot of hype. Some people say it’s a hoax and others believe it’s actually true. Who knows? I’ll just tell you about it anyway.
A woman in Taiwan wasn’t happy about the way she looked so decided to do what many able women do, get plastic surgery and make herself look beautiful. Who wouldn’t want to be beautiful, right? Stereotypes aren’t just made up. They become stereotypes because there are enough cases of something to actually say it happens. The stereotype of beautiful women having a richer lifestyle simply because they are beautiful does come from the fact that good-looking men or men with money don’t necessarily go out with ugly women.
The woman from Taiwan has 3 children. The husband felt his children were ugly and wondered why until he found an old picture of his wife. Here’s her before and after shots:
He evidently sued her and won!
Just the thought of this (true or not) sounds horrific in so many levels. The man would clearly have no morals and wouldn’t care about the fact that his children will forever know that he thinks they are ugly. Besides this, his poor wife (of course we don’t know if she was or wasn’t a nice person to begin with) now has to face the judgments that others will have on her.
I live in an area, where plastic surgery is very popular. Vanity has taken over so many households and even children are being neglected because of it. That’s right, it’s not just on TV. It’s real life.
I spoke to a nanny at a playground just a few blocks from our home. She told me that she has been a nanny for over 20 years and has cared for at least 4 children from very wealthy families. Three of the four children she has cared for had moms who cared more about their looks and working out than they did their own children. One woman, for example, spent 4 hours every day inside the gym of their house and doing everything she needed to do so that her husband wouldn’t replace her for a more desirable model. She wanted the nanny to be there 7 days a week so that she could spend more “me” time.
Now, I don’t know about all of you, but I do truly believe that beauty is also skin deep. I have been around many good looking people who are far from pleasant. Personally, I like remembering the good people, rather than the ugly attitudes. Don’t you?
