If people really cared more about the substance of a person, and less about how they look, the desire or need for cosmetic alterations would drastically drop.

It is not my place to judge another, view another with anything other than acceptance of them as a person and if how they look changes anything in my mind about them, then I am the one with the flaw that needs correction.

I believe if you have a connection to ancestors and heritage it should be cherished and allowed to form a foundational pillar within, but this is my belief, not something that I may force upon anyone else.

Human beings are beautiful.
Society, with it’s adherence to judgements based on how people look, is not.
