Brains VS Boobs [WTF Friday]
When I was 14, my mother pressured me to do a lot of things. I had to make my bed every morning, make it to class every day and make all A’s every semester. I did not, however, have to make my boobs bigger. And there were a few times that I tried to stuff my bra, but mom totally called me out and said I looked ridiculous. Thanks, mom. No really, I love you for that. Socks in a training bra don’t look or feel anything like real boobs.
Britney Marshal isn’t having the same experience. At 14, Miss Marshal is being pressured by her mother to get a boob job. Not by the immature and pubescent boys at school–her mother. It gets worse. Mama Marshall was quoted by Huffington Post saying:
“At the moment [Britney] doesn’t really have what I would say are boobs — but I’d like her to follow in her sisters’ footsteps… I really love the fake look of my girls, and I know Britney will go that way when she’s a bit older.”
WTF? Good lord. Who is this woman and why did someone allow her to procreate? She acts as if plastic surgery is some sort of career path. Britney’s family members describe her as the ‘brainy’ daughter, and blame her academic fervor for diminishing her desire to get plastic surgery. Which poses an interesting question. What will get you further in life: brains or boobs? It’s my natural inclination to err on the side of brains, because boobs shrivel and sag at a much more rapid rate. But do fake boobs live forever? There are many women in the world who are making a lot of money from their rack and have virtually no brain power.
Here’s a few women that made us think twice about the opportunity cost of integrity and what else we could be doing with our tuition money:
