Christina Hendricks: Role Model
By Wyatt Earp | January 31, 2011
Men want her and women want to be her.
Plastic surgeons say the [upward] trend [in breast enhancement surgery] is due in part to the popularity of the television series Mad Men – and of Christina Hendricks, its voluptuous star.
Statistics to be released by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) on Monday are expected to show that the number of women having breast augmentations jumped by more than 10 per cent last year after stalling in 2009. A BAAPS source suggested that Hendricks was influential in the increase, which means that for the first time more than 9,000 women a year in Britain are having surgery to boost their cleavage.
Let’s consider this from a feminist perspective.
* It’s good that women aren’t emulating “heroin chic”
* It’s bad that women are undergoing breast enhancement, because that implies that they have an issue with their bodies
* It’s a function of the “male gaze”
* The bastards! (H/T – Bob and Dannytheman)
A man’s perspective is much simpler: Boobs are good.
