Venezuela Runs Off Body Image Cliff

Something is wrong in South America, especially in Brazil and Venezuela.  Most picture South Americans as alpaca herders or stomping barefoot in a tub full of cocoa leaves.  But there' plenty of narcissism in their bigger cities, enough to match anything Europe or the USA can muster.

Case in point, see what's going on in store windows in Caracas, left?. 

Super-thin mannequins with giant-big breast implants are being blamed for an epidemic body-image problem among Venezuelan poverty stricken females.

The mannequins are said to mimic what poor women across the country are morphing themselves into spending what little resources they have on trying to attain what the mannequins now reflect.

And boutique owners who have these mannequins have enjoyed a spike in sales.

Osmel Sousa runs Venezuela's Miss Universe program. He says, ‘If 'defects' can be easily fixed with surgery, then why not do it [referring to noses and boobs]?’

Sousa callously offers, ‘inner beauty doesn’t exist. That’s something that unpretty women invented to justify themselves.’

Gotta pity the females who end up anywhere near a guy like Sousa...giant, fake boobs are an aberration, not a thing of beauty.
