and other types of plastic surgery....
i mention getting a boob job every now and then in various conversations. i'm half serious, half not. i talk about getting one... but i've never actually researched it. don't know much about the procedure, cost, or anything other than the fact that the end result is one hell of a nice rack. and sometimes, that sounds really fun! especially for someone who has "chesticles" like i do.
but you know what stops me? the thought of suddenly having these huge tits, and trying to explain what the hell i just did to my body and WHY, to my 8 year old son. it's not like he wouldn't notice the difference. how do you teach your son not to treat women like objects, and to be a good man, when his mom just went and got boobs for whatever self imposed reason? how do i teach him to love people for who they are, and accept the way they look, when i just changed something about the way i look? how do you teach him to not judge women and be obsessed with their tits, when mom just went and made hers ginormous?
and then i totally project to having another baby, and having it be a girl.... and how do you teach her to love herself, no matter what- when you've had physical alterations? how do you teach her that her looks shouldn't matter, when you've changed yours?!??! how do you teach her to just accept the way she looks, and be okay with it- when it's obvious you weren't?
so i wonder... for those of you who have had plastic surgery- will your kids know what you did? or will you not tell them? and how will you explain it to them without sounding completely hypocritical? i'm not judging anyone who got anything done... to each their own (and who knows, i could still get boobs someday) i'm just curious.. how do you deal with this topic?
