Heidi Montag, star of reality TV, re-creates the reality of her own body

Hannon writes:

This story reveals an absurd side effect of breast enlargement. She cannot hug people. This woman is a parody of her former (very beautiful) self:

Heidi says she is happy with her new body, but there are certain things she can’t do any longer. Jogging, for one, since her breasts are “E or F” depending on the bra. Also, hugging.

“I’m very weird about hugging people now—[my body] is very fragile,” she said.

LA replies:

This very pretty reality TV star (whatever that is, I’ve never watched one second of a reality TV show) is happy with her new body, even though she cannot hug anyone because her surgically altered breasts are so fragile she fears they would be damaged even by the mild contact of hugging. She is 24 years old, and she has damaged her body so badly in her pursuit of unnaturally large breasts that she will never be able to hug another person for the rest of her life, and she’s happy about this? And of course the non-hugging would include her husband. Think of it. The more her artificially enlarged breasts arouse him, the more he must refrain from embracing her because her breasts might fall off. This belongs in a new version of Dante’s Inferno for our time. It’s worse than the plastic surgery nightmare in the dark comedy Death Becomes Her.

But stop! Who are we to criticize or judge Heidi’s cosmetic surgery, or even feel icky about it? After all, as we’ve been informed by reader Doug B., breast implants are simply an expression of

the rational belief that rational man through the use of reason and technology can improve himself for the better by studying the natural world, identifying its absolute principles and using them to benefit mankind in countless ways…. Self love is a normal thing. Only someone with a contempt for man would think otherwise.
