Is cosmetic surgery a valid option to put an end to being teased, and or bullied?
Inspired by a segment on Nightline about an 8th grader who went under the knife to get a nose job to stop being picked on at school, certain points were raised. If one has a nose considered larger than the average student body, or a chest that bloomed late or hardly at all, and it is a source for teasing, harassment, or bullying and you change it, it is caving to the masses more than building character to withstand insults or those who don’t approve of you. Not changing something if you can afford it will eventually lead to a broken spirit because your character can only take so many hits, for so long. Do you think cosmetic surgery is a valid option to combat the bullying or at least take away its thunder, or if you didn’t change the issue causing the teasing, and bullying the person will be beat down emotionally daily for no reason?
