Recall "your going to die JUST. LIKE. YOUR. MOTHER. DID."
You see it as mutilation.
How do you feel about your appendix, tonsils, wisdom teeth?
Many people choose to have these removed before complications ever occur.
I'm fond of taking extended wilderness treks solo anywhere from 50-100+ miles away from the nearest human structure. I also go sailing, sometimes on
extended trips. I had my appendix taken out long ago before I ever had problems with it to avoid the chance of ever getting stuck hundreds of miles
away from any help in a bad situation with failing health.
Have I mutilated myself by getting my appendix removed when I didn't have a problem with it to begin with?
I had all my wisdom teeth removed at the first sign of trouble, and my tonsils were out as a child.
Am I mutilated? Only the one wisdom tooth was causing trouble at the time, but, what's to say the rest wouldn't raise arms in rebellion? Having none
of that, I had them out.
Or, do you just have some over emotional attachment to someone else's boobies that you've never met and feel the need to enforce your own sense of
reasoning and aesthetic on other people regarding what they can and can't do with their own bodies as a matter of progressive foresight in health
awareness against their will?
Are people that get Tattoos mutilating themselves? Piercings? What about breast implants by themselves? Breast reduction too for those that have
problems with over-endowment?
Little Christina Ricci blossomed into distracting over-endowment and for the sake of her career as an actress as well as her quality of life, opted to
have a reduction.
At what point does the definition of "mutilation" start and stop?
At what point is it fine and okay for someone else to tell you, and even enforce their own ideals on what you can and can't do with your own body,
especially as it applies to your own very personal health concerns?
Historical records have indicated that castrated men live longer, healthier, more active and productive lives. If you're in favor of telling other
people what they can and can't do with their bodies, certainly wouldn't be against any law or condition of health insurance coverage that says all men
need be castrated after some arbitrary age, for their own good you know?
