MEGHAN MCCAIN IS THE NEW DAVID BROOKS:
I raise this question because it is something of a new, twisted paradox in American culture. Women with small breasts feel shamed or pressured into having cosmetic surgery to increase their breast size. Once they do, they are seemingly allowed to display them for all the world to see—as though we, too, are actually invested in this investment. Meanwhile, women with real breasts are shamed and pressured into only wearing high-cut dresses and blouses (or better, yet, turtlenecks!) lest they be ridiculed. [...] For all the strides we make as a society when it comes to talking about body image, there is still a real schizophrenia about what is ideal and acceptable.
