Condo Bodies

Here's an odd vanishing. What's conspicuously missing from both of these Meatpacking area advertisements?

If you guessed pubic hair, you're right.

The male body, especially, doesn't look shaved, it looks partly erased. And possibly castrated in the process. The female body looks kind of like a smooth egg. The V shape of the tan line suggests a pubic mons, but without the unruliness.

Yunnies not only strive to Jonesify their surroundings, they Jonesify their bodies, too. No dirt, no fat, no hair, no age. No chaos and nothing out of control. Like robots. Like glass condos. Hard, smooth, cool, and streamlined.

And now they're doing it to little girls.

This salon offers "'Virgin'-waxing for children 8 years old and up who have never shaved before. Virgin hair can be waxed so successfully that growth can be permanently stopped in just 2 to 6 sessions. Save your child a lifetime of waxing... and put the money in the bank for her college education instead! Ask about our special children's prices."

The Post reports that salons all over the city are seeing hundreds of moms signing up their daughters for this procedure. And according to this extensive story in Philadelphia, it's happening there, too, where pediatricians can't remember the last time they saw pubic hair on pubescent girls, and narcissism is getting a leg up on the next generation.

Last I heard, genital mutilation was illegal in this country. Here's the number to call for Child Protective Services: 1-800-342-3720.

Virgin waxing? Incredible. I don't have any kids, but this seems totally foul to me. Kids are kids, for God's sake. Let them get dirty, and hairy and messy. May they escape their parent's clutches and be raised by wolves.

Technically circumcision of newborn babies is a legal form of involuntary genital mutilation. But yeah, the whole no hair down there phenomenon can be attributed to the porn industry and the proliferation of porn via the internet. Shaving does make your penis look bigger though.

I dunno man. America has become a very self-absorbed culture. I don't know that this can all be laid at the Yunny's feet. There are, after all, more than a few people in that demographic who don't cultivate this lifestyle. And conversely, there are quite a few people who are not in this demographic, and are old enough to know better, but don't.

Jesus, this is disturbing.

these parents would obviously disagree, but virgin waxing further preps their daughters for an over-sexualized youth.

This is a classic manifestation of a narcissistic mindset -- who see their children not as separate individuals, but as extensions of themselves. It's really warped, and lethal to their kids, who are then punished if they don't mirror their narcissistic parent(s), not only physically, but in their emotional responses and make-up, too. These yunnies really shouldn't be allowed to reproduce their little Jon Benets.
