    Every time I see someone with ear gauges I can't believe how stupid they look. Modifying your body is just something I don't understand the attraction to. Tattoos and piercings aren't my thing but at least I can see the point of them. You can take out all of your piercings and eventually the holes will close up. But ear gauging you're basically making a decision to make yourself look like an idiot for the rest of your life. Let alone the fact that whenever you come into contact with someone they see you as just as some weird hipster and most of the time no one looks past the factt hat you look like some sort of freak of nature.

    It's not a good look. You certainly wouldn't like what some gals do with their lips in parts of Africa.

    Meh, it's stretching skin. By that principle, putting on weight is mutilation.

    I'm not into that stuff personally, and generally I agree that it is dumb. I don't really bother myself too much about what other folks do.

    It looks fine to me, my criticism is that it's very boring. Ear gauging is all pretty much the same. What's the point?

    At least with earrings you get a huge variety of choices and can swap them out all the time. Ear gauges, it's all almost exactly identical.

    Well, losing weight doesn't magically tighten the skin back up. It's a more apt comparison than you think.

    Either way, I don't think it's "mutilation" by any definition, but it is very unattractive.

    Who would ever be ashamed of that?

    Dude has done an objectively exceptional job as President. Electing him was a homerun.

    That thing where goobers wore drop-crotch pants was the worst ever.

    Gauging is pretty goofy too though.

    That's certainly true, but the guy also whiffed on the joke, which was about how dumb and short-lived Trump's support is. The guy just saw what he regarded as a swipe against his "team" and felt he had to respond with an attack on another "team."
