During a city trip with my wife a while ago, we got some food at a hipster place. The young woman who served us and who was not at all unattractive, had one shockingly unappealing and permanent feature: She was probably not even in her 20s, yet being a fashion-conscious stupid little whore, she got herself some “earlobe gauges” earlier in her life. Now that she had gotten tired of them, she had huge holes in her flabby earlobes. This was a very ugly sight, and the fact that this woman did this to herself was quite saddening. If you do not know what I am talking about, please look online for “earlobe gauges” or “earlobe blowout”, but perhaps do so on an empty stomach. Of course there is the option of cosmetic surgery, but this is somewhat limited. If you went to the extremes this young woman did, your options are quite limited, and if it was so easy, she probably would have done this already. Now she is disfigured for life.
Women are very eager to follow trends, and to a much higher degree than men. You can probably easily come up with an evolutionary explanation for this even if you have never though about it. There is also the problem that older women who can no longer compete well in the dating market may conspire to deliberately ruin the appearance of young women in order to improve their relative sexual market value. Old feminists tell young women that they should cut their hair short or that they should get fat because they are beautiful at any size. Similarly, in the kind of subculture this woman was in, you can easily find women who kind of hang around on the periphery. These women missed the window for snagging a steady boyfriend and now that they are in their early thirties, they have nothing else that hanging out in certain clubs, preying on inexperienced women who just entered their subculture. These older, spent women — in the past, we would perhaps have burnt them as witches — may encourage younger women to get piercings, tattoos, or ear gauges, which would “look so good on you”. You just need one or two to fall for this, and suddenly you reach the tipping point and all the women in a particular subculture follow certain very harmful trends. If you think I am joking then you probably have never met a group of girls with a fake-tan who all had their hair dyed blonde. This is simply a problem of peer pressure.
All of this only goes to show that if you end up having a daughter, you need to really control whom she hangs out with. Certainly, it would also benefit her a lot if you did not live in a big city as in smaller cities such aberrations will not happen. Thus, young and attractive women who casually threw away their good looks serve as a great warning sign to not just other women but also to any father or mother of a daughter, albeit I suspect that some mothers may not be fully aware of those dangers. The world is an ugly place for young, attractive women, and if they let their guard down, there will easily get influenced by someone who wants to ruin them.
