This eyelid surgery is stupid, but the result is visual, not functional. So it's no more "evil" than breast implants.

Note that this gives a pretty good reason to have the surgery done.

Circumcision makes you lose function in your penis, while breast implants and eye surgery do not make you lose function in breasts or eyes.

The only reason Stormwatch has a problem with circumcision is because he had one go wrong, otherwise I'm sure he wouldn't even think about it. The same goes for other plastic surgery here, it's only bad in a way when it goes horribly wrong.

Surely you can see the difference between a baby having his foreskin chopped off by his parents without even thinking about their child's future wishes, and an adult deciding "I want eyelids"?

And, as has already been pointed out. The effects of circumcision are more than visual.

EDIT: My 6000th post is about foreskins. Yay!

IIRC, his circumcision did not went wrong. The problem is that they circumcised him without his consent, when they were supposed to perform another type of surgery.

Yeah, I can understand having surgery to make your eyes be symmetrical. Asymmetry in the eyes is very... Distracting, I guess, on people.

I've just always thought the whole eyelid alteration to make themselves look more "western" is fucked up. I get the impression that it is actually rarer now than it once was, but still.

I also have to note that in Hong Kong at least, very "asian" looking people don't seem to make it as often as less "asian" looking people in pop culture. The more popular people typically have less round faces, less pronounced epicanthal folds, etc. Just a general observation, I dunno if it is an overall trend or not. This seems to have been particularly true in the past 10-15 years.

But then again, of course, the #1 Hong Kong actor of all time, Chow Yun-Fat, is *very* Chinese looking.
