Are you a SEP (Surgically Enhanced Person)?

Sunday, July 12, 2009

People have a right to do what they will to their bodies, but is there a limit?
The recent death of megastar Michael Jackson put along with it, the issue of SEPs, Surgicially Enhanced People. While body modification isn't new, some people (it's documented) have become addicted to tinkering with themselves.
Sooner or later, they become this monstrosity that, just maybe, technically infringes on your right to look at a real person.
I mean, how would you feel if you were talking to a real person, only to discover that they aren't real at all: their eye lashes are fake, their hair is a wig, their legs come off (paraplegic), their arms screw off, etc. (Remember this scene from "I'ma Get You, Sucka?"
Are there self-esteem issues behind surgically enhanced people? Are they not satified with being au naturale? Do they see themselves as flawed naturally?
Also on the rise are people modifying their bodies for other people's pleasure (breast augmentation for women who strip so that they can be more appealing, thus get more tips).
Is their a limit? (They say only one of MJ's family tried to intervene in his behalf). Or is it all good?
I don't even know anymore.

I couldn't even read your post for these pictures...I know she is supposed to look "good" but I think she looks gross. I'm sure there is SOMEONE out there with the same shape but she just doesn't look "real" me.

Going back to read now LOL

Some folks absolutely do take enhancement to a whole other level and its most definitely due to the way that they see themselves in the eyes of others. I think its really sad and can empathize with them for not having that early reinforcement of their beauty.

Baby girl up top is just all wrong. Which reminds me of all the enhancing that Lil' Kim has done. I can totally understand why she did it, HOWEVER, that does NOT mean that she should have!!

@ Ms. Bar B: I agree. Lil Kim, and I guess others, see it as a business investment and do it i guess to increased their 'brand'? But is there a limit?
