Interesting Article TBoy although quite sad:( Repression does terrible things through the generations.

Has anyone heard about this new "FAD" directed of course by the media image of being the perfect size girl where girls now in HK get leg extensions to look taller???

I saw this program on The Learning Channel here in Canada. Supposedly, these young girls go through a lot of pain(ouch) to get these steel rods inserted into their legs to look taller.
The girls that had the surgery done were telling the interviewer that they did this because it helped them get better jobs and would further enhance their personal, and career life(modelling).

Come on, give me a break! Does this go on in Taiwan too? Any comments on this from those in Asia.

Jo
