They want to be prom queens

When I see the photo of the latest "fad" of the media, I keep thinking of what a certain comic writer (a female, who married and had children) wrote in the 1980s about the "queens" she sometimes worked with: (paraphrased)

They don't really want to be women, they want to be 18 year old prom queens.
 Yup.  Because ordinary 65 year old women don't get boob jobs or botox so they can show off their "new" bodies. We are too busy caring for our aging parents/children/ grandchildren/spouses. 

More women than men are caregivers: an estimated 66% of caregivers are female. One-third (34%) take care of two or more people, and the average age of a female caregiver is 48.0

65 million caregivers in the USA don't get their photos on VanityFair...

and when Brucygirl gets sick, who will care for her? The Kardashians or his/her latest squeeze (reportedly a woman, of course...women are fools for caring for lost boys...see Wendy in PeterPan).

and if you love celebrating Kaitlyn's expensive makeover (who paid for it and how much did it cost?) waiting in the wings is the "Transability" fad: the desire to become a handicapped person.

"The person could want to become deaf, blind, amputee, paraplegic. It’s a really, really strong desire."

why not? doesn't everyone have a "fundamental right to personal recreation"?

well the Supreme court says we do 

...a “substantive due process” right is found in the concept of “individual liberty” within the Due Process Clause, the Court infamously declared in the so-called “mystery clause”: “At the heart of liberty is the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life.”

so bring on the cyborgs, baby.


Monty Python anyone?
