SoS: Why did you get a boob job?

R: It was something I've wanted to do for a long time. I always wanted fuller boobs, because I think they are beautiful.

SoS: What kinds of positive and negative feedback did you receive?

R: The only negative feedback I received was before the surgery, from men saying I didn't need to do it, that they wouldn't like it. I told them I didn't care what they thought. I was doing it for myself. All positive feedback afterwards including the naysayers.

SoS: Did the viewpoint of society impact your decision? What societal pressures impacted your decision? How so?

R: If society had an impact, it was a negligible one to me. I don't feel that society as a whole or individually told me I needed it or didn't. My friends were supportive, which was cool, but like I said, I did it for me. SoS: There's this whole women's movement about being happy with who you are, being natural, and loving you for you trending in the last decade or even more. Do you think getting plastic surgery goes against that? R: If you do it for a guy, or because you think guys will be more into you, that's the opposite of self-love. It's self-destructive. But if the reason you're doing it is because you feel it's really what you want, then philosophically speaking, it's similar to dying your hair or shaving your head or getting a tattoo. Body modification should be done without regard to the judgements you may receive.

SoS: What's your favorite thing about your new look?

R: Most people wouldn't know if I didn't tell them, which is really great. I wasn't doing it for attention, but instead for my own desire to have something I didn't have before. My personality has always gotten me the attention I get anyway!

SoS: Do you have anything you want to say to others about what they should think about what getting plastic surgery?

R: Research! And don't do it spontaneously. Talk it out with friends and make sure you're doing it for the right reasons. Understand that it won't change how you feel about yourself as a person, and you definitely shouldn't do it for other people. *** Robin is 34, living in Steven's Point, Wisconsin for the time being, though for the past 5 years, she has been hopping from city to city around the USA as a travel nurse. She's also lived in San Diego, New York City, Louisville, Dallas, St. Louis, and Modesto, just to name a few. She is my amazing sister, and she is a pillar of self-love and honesty; she could take on all the plastic surgery haters out there in her sleep. I think it's important to let people make their own decisions and accept them for what they are. That's why my sister and I wanted to use her body as a powerful tool, communicating that it's ok to be who you are, no matter what you decide to do with yourself. I also wanted to showcase the beauty that is a woman's body through the popular 2017 festival trend known as disco tits, a sparkly and sneaky way contemporary women have found to normalize the female form. Just because a woman's body is beautiful and she wants to show it off does not give anyone the right to violate her. Free the nipple, y'all.
