The word GREED in my ‘BEFORE Photo Shoot Story’ photo made my eldest daughter worry women with implants (or who had once been implanted) would think it expressed women with implants were greedy. (NO!!!!) My youngest daughter was also confused by it, unsure what it meant.
MY intention was to reflect the greed of some breast implant manufacturers … the breast implant industry is a billions dollar industry, making money off devices that are making too many women ill.
Dow Corning made a batch of defective breast implants (the ones I unknowingly had), but instead of tossing them and absorbing the loss themselves they ‘re-baked’ them to make them appear ok, knowing they were NOT OK … and sold them to be implanted in unsuspecting women. The implants had a near 100% failure rate at 5-6 years.
P.I.P. breast implants contained industrial grade silicone intended for use in computers and other technological devices; they also contained mattress filler.
What other than GREED would lead manufacturers to such diabolical measures!
I figured if my daughters were confused that many others would be also so I just want to qualify my intention in choosing that word.
I want to also qualify that the words painted on my body were chosen to express what *I* felt/feel. I do not in any way want to impose my words/feelings on anyone else. Each woman will have their own words/feelings/experiences. I can only reflect what I was personally feeling/feel.
