Everyone’s been talking about the new short video that has surfaced from months ago. It’s been shown in a bunch of places, but if you haven’t watched the 17th Brussels Short Film Festival – Supervenus yet, then you’re in for a surprise. This video was created by Frédéric Doazan (from France). He has since gotten a lot of attention from his short clip from among various sites, including Reddit. Careful, you might not want to let your kids see it.
What’s it saying?
Are women going to be paying the price on what it takes to be considered pretty?
We were created to be who we are. Religious people will claim that we’re created in “God’s image”, and although I’m not personally a believer of any religion, I can’t help but side along with them this time. People look like who they are from the genes they’ve been given from their parents. Isn’t it against nature to dramatically alter your looks so that you’re completely a different person?
Let’s look at celebrities today:
Pamela has reported undergone several boob jobs over the years. She’s also gotten stuff done on her face. That stuff ain’t natural.
Jocelyn is regarded as the “Cat-Woman” (though I personally would call her something else) because she has reportedly spend $4 million on her face to have feline features for her boyfriend.
These are just examples of the celebrities that have had stuff gone wrong. More often than not though, celebrities have done less drastic but unjustifiable alternations to their face or body in one way or another. If you got that money, why not spend it, right?
The debate here is whether it’s ethical or not for young girls to see these celebrities they idolize do that. It’s normal for younger people to be influenced by people they admire, so if they see their favorite celebrities getting a nose job or a boob job, they think “Hey, why can’t I do it too?”. It’s already grown to be a normalcy for teenagers in Korea to get something done on their 16th birthday.
The more we do these things, the less ourselves we become. In the future if everyone can afford to alter their looks, what’s going to happen to the concept of originality? Where is the source of our identity?
In regards to the “Supervenus“, we think that certain people are too addicted to the concept of plastic surgery that they’ve lost everything about who they are. And though you may think you know your limit, but the more and more work you do, the less realistic our perceptions of beauty are. And in the end you merely end up becoming a big lump of flesh and blood.
So, is plastic surgery taking the ideals of beauty too far?
The more perfect someone becomes, the higher the standards become for the rest.
Sure, not everyone thinks that celebrities that undergo surgery are “hot”, but a lot more people do, and the problem is that it’s becoming too common for the new generation to think this way. Tell us what you think of this issue.
