@blossom_bee: yes yes yes! I just woke up my FH when I broke out in laughter after reading about bald vaginas…

Most of us use skincare which is for our specific needs, right? Anti-aging skincare regimes can run hundreds of dollars to start, and then require replenishing the products at least 4x a year.

Guess what ladies, the Botox financial investment is pretty comparable, depending on where you go & what you have done. And it’s indisputably effective.

Oh I miss it… (trying to be frugal) And I think I might miss the side effect of it preventing tension headaches even more, especially during the holidays & planning!

@blossom_bee:  I expected to get the narcissistic rant from you – tends to happen when the ego is threatened. 

Interesting to see how you try to normalize botox as a progression from shaving legs, using facial creams, dying hair, etc.  This propaganda has been promoted for a while now in the media and sad to see so many stupid women buying it.  You’re a marketing dream. 

The fact that you’ve filled 3 passports and studied doesn’t mean you’ve ‘lived’ in a real, inner-self, meaningful way.  It simply makes you well-travelled and perhaps educated in a particular field. 

Your perverted way of deflecting your own behavior relating to botox on to a comment I made on another thread about waxing supports your narcissistic need to fill your own ego.

No Pia. It means that in the gentlest possible way, I called you out on your hypocrisy. Nothing more. Other posters recognised this clearly. Irrational psychobabble doesn’t make a dent in the life of a mature woman who is content with her own decisions. I’m not deflecting my own behavior or choices at all – why would I? I’m completely fine with both. Laughing

You may disagree with botox, that’s perfectly fine, no one is forcing you to go have it done. Just try and phrase yourself in a more well mannered way so that you don’t accidentally come across as a poisonous hypocrite when you attempt to put forward an opposing view. If you want to change a person’s views, do you really think that your technique worked? Time to reassess your methods perhaps.

Perhaps we should all live and let live and not turn this thread into another bee-bashing ladies?

Botox as a personal choice is interesting – maybe we should act like the adults (I presume) we all are and treat the discussion and our fellow bees with a little more respect and less personal bashing.

I for one don’t like to see this awesome community be turned into something ugly because people get personal and snarky.

@reneeheartssam: I agree. If we can’t get our point across politely then there is little point in commenting at all.

@Pia2010: Are you serious?  How can you possibly make such a significant judgment on a woman you know next to nothing about?  I, for one, do not like botox or radical cosmetic surgery, and it scares the bejeezus out of me, but I’m not going to level the claim that someone is a narcissist (do you even know what that means, by the way?), or that they haven’t lived a meaningful life just because they want to make some changes to their own bodies.  How can you possibly qualify what a meaningful life is?  

But I suspect you must just ‘know it when you see it’, because you’re so wise and have lived in an “inner-self, meaningful way”, unlike the millions upon millions of women who have indulged in or considered some cosmetic surgery, and thus only put yourself through the ‘correct’ sorts of cosmetic improvement.  What I really don’t understand is how you’re assuming you can deduce who has a rich inner life based on very basic, external things and words.  Let alone, like I said before, how you can even say what constitutes a rich inner life, and thus tell decisively who has one and who doesn’t.

I’m shaking my head here.  I can’t believe that someone who has posted hundreds of times on this website would stoop to exhibiting such trollish behavior.

@blossom_bee:  It would only be hypocritical if i were to get botox.  Otherwise, they’re two separate things.  I also don’t post in attempt to change, rather to express a point.

thank you veganglam.  IMO They aren’t two separate if you consider that both are unnecessary and clearly fall under the category of vanity. Women choose to do them for a variety of reasons, peer pressure, curiosity,  insecurity or just plain personal preference. We’ve had pubic hair for ions and only in the last 15 years has rocking a bald pubic area been vogue. Just like you choose to rock a baldie if bee choses to get botox or some other cosmetic procedure its one thing to be against the choice but you made a silly assumption about her and rightfully got called out about it. The bigger thing would be to admit your error rather than try to rationalize it.

I would like botox  under my armpits to stop the sweat!  And do you, who cares what others say.

@Pia2010: I’m pretty sure your comments fall under the “threadjacking/assholeness” rule. Clearly you haven’t had botox, so I’m not sure why you even opened this thread unless it was just to shvt stir and name call.

RE; BOTOX, I’m not, but I would if I felt I needed it 🙂 I like the under the arm thing!

@Belle2Be: Let’s just flag the posts and bow out gracefully :-). No need to take the thread away from the OP by continuing to call out the person taking over…

@crayfish: I didn’t flag because I didn’t think it was technically flaggable, she’s allowed to state her opinion according the the TOS. It really bothered me so I felt the need to post my opinion on her opinion. There really is no need for you to monitor other people’s comments, it does the exact opposite of your stated reason and draws things out further.

The threadjacking policy hasn’t been posted yet (my net was down most of the weekend ugh).  For the record, there is no a**holeness rule.

Sorry we didn’t catch the comments about how botox makes you “narcissistic” or suffering from low self-esteem and needing therapy.  If we had seen a flag about it earlier, we would’ve deleted that as a personal attack.  But since a number of comments following it responded to the post, I’d rather not delete it at this point.

Since the OP wasn’t looking for advice and this thread has no real point, I’m going to close the thread for now.

I dont have any frown lines yet but I get really bad tension headaches from frowning.  Botox has been used to help tension headaches for awhile and I always wanted to try this.
