i cannot imagine being so vain and preoccupied with my appearance that I would go through painful surgery to make my middle toe a little less long????? i think this shows one of many problems in our society with self image.

i totally agree with you lele, but this surgery just comes in as any other plastic surgery for me.
the pain you undergo for a nosejob or a lipo is not less i am sure. and the goal, really, is the same: to feel better.

now whether this specific surgery is dangerous or not is a diffreent issue...

remember those people who brake their legs to then have them legthened by a few inches OUCH

Do we need Amnesty International to force the designers to walk a mile in their own shoes? And for that matter where is PETA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, when you need them? Throwing paint at furriers? What about the toe cutters?

hehehe, i grew up with that GRIMM story
(the GRIMM brothers and I were born and raised in the same city in germany!!) and even had to play that in a theatre play.
maybe thats why i dont find it as shocking as a lot of you.

nowadays, you can do anything to your body, cutting off toes has become one of them i guess
