Newell, who's been asked "Are they real?" more times than she can count, seconds Seery's advice.
"We've sensationalized the whole plastic surgery industry with shows like 'Extreme Makeover' and 'Nip/Tuck,' so now people feel they can discuss it, even with complete strangers," she says. "But it's none of your business, and it's extremely offensive to pry. What if I was a cancer survivor?"
The whole article, about how you should go out of your way to give people who have had plastic surgery compliments that don't make them feel awkward, is pretty ridiculous. But this paragraph was the worst.
Ms. Newell, no offense, but you got fake boobs. You are not a cancer survivor. It may not be classy to point out a stranger's fake boobs in public...but it's still not anything remotely like being a cancer survivor. I mean, don't you get work done on your breasts so people will notice them?
I'm not saying that means it's okay to sexually harass women who have had implants. At all. I'm just saying that it's not like you have cancer.
