How Far is Too Far?

So this guy last year got a hair transplant, now he has had a beard transplant. Now I know each to their own, we all have the right to make decisions on how we look and if we want to go down this route or not.

What are you fighting in doing this?
What is prompting or causing this sort of behaviour in our society?

Okay so genetically we are preconditioned to present ourselves in order to meet a strong mate, reproduce strong offspring.

So are we to cheat our prospective mate? Make them think we won't go bald or we have suspiciously perfect skin or facial hair? Huge lips with no natural lines or at 40, have had such a perfect life your face has just realised and gone into a state of shock?

Come on people. What you were born with is what you have, those are the cards you were dealt.

The features you have are not yours and yours alone. They are on loan from those who came before you. From your mother, father, grandparents, aunts and uncles.

They are on loan to you so that you can pass them on to someone else. So that they may pass them on. The lips that kissed you goodnight, the eyes you stared into as a child and the ears that listened to your first words.

In changing these things not only are you insulting those who passed them to you, but telling your children, those who come after you, that these features are not good enough.

Are your beautiful children ugly? Are they to change their features?

Get a grip people!

How you walk in the skin you wear is your decision. Why not embrace it? What other choice do you have?
