    It really isn't that big of a deal. It was free pretty simple surgery. If I had ears that were really far out like that and someone offered to fix them for free I don't see why you would refuse

    Where does it end though? What happens when she goes back to school and they say "Tits or GTFO"? Will she then 'need' implants?

    She looks just fine in the before image, especially considering she's caked with makeup in the after image. Pretty sure ear surgery doesn't change your complexion, after all. Pretty fucking manipulative use those two pictures when the ears are far from the only difference.

    This is totally the wrong idea. Bullies will always find some flaw. Changing yourself to stop them will never work.

    I do think she was excessive in her efforts, but I think that that philosophy wouldn't hold true for more serious malformations.

    There was a boy on a National Geographic documentary series, an 8 year old with severe facial deformities from birth, and the parents were talking about how they had no interest in surgeries that weren't necessary for health reasons (e.g. breathing).

    If bullies made fun of her for that long, it's not just because they think she has big ears.

    I had the same surgery when I was 5. Luckily, TriCare paid for it because it was considered a deformity.

    What sort of fuckin twisted society gone wrong shit is this I'm reading

    "oh no you are being bullied that is sad rather than teaching kids kindness and not to judge others for superficial things let's teach kids that you should change yourself physically to conform to societal standards for something as insignificant as ear orientation"

    Think this foundation also reduces head sizes? I'm nearing the end of my school years and people still make fun of my bigger head
    people have been poking at my head for 2 decades now. I tell em its called "Hudgins Head" (Hudgins is my mothers maiden name and that side of the family very commonly have large heads) and I wouldn't have it any other way.

    And come on! I like those ears! That is in no way a deformity, thats simply a difference!

    and wow the after photo makes her look a lot older.

    i look past your big ears and see the beautiful man beneath them, the man who argues his beliefs on an internet forum, doing what he enjoys. This is what makes you better than those meanie butts that made fun of you, you follow your dreams.
    I'll be honest with you here; that's pretty gay.

    My ears are pretty big but that doesn't mean I needed $40,000 surgery + psychological counselling to get through my first year of high school, and yeah, my nickname was dumbo too during public school. I don't know how bad it was for her, but to someone who's been in that position, it seems like kind of a waste of money.

    I think your ear looks sexy.

    Ears are definitely a lot less noticeable in the second picture. If she's happy with the result, who am I to judge? Glad she doesn't feel bad anymore.
