Artificial butt

Black women's ongoing obsession with their butt size has taken a bizarre new twist. One woman who apparently can't afford to buy authentic butt pads, improvised by stuffing a sofa cushion down the back of her shorts! Before you laugh, the pillow was good enough to fool several men on the street who gave the chick exactly the type of attention she's probably been craving all her life.

Chaz Bono

Cher's daughter Chaz Bono, who suffers from Gender Identity Disorder (GID), lost 65 pounds after nearly a year on special diets and exercises.

Bono, who weighed 250 pounds at the start of her weight-loss journey, said the weight loss "makes everything easier."

"I just feel much more comfortable in my skin now," said the 44-year-old former Dancing With The Stars contestant. Chaz, who was born Chastity Bono, didn't feel so comfortable in her skin after living her life as a lesbian.

Michelle Williams, center, was suffering from body image disturbance issues when she turned to former Destiny's Child bandmate Kelly Rowland, left, for some sisterly advice.

The last post I wrote on Body Image Disturbance (BID) profiled a 23-year-old woman who died of complications related to her sixth breast augmentation surgery.

Despite the increased media focus on botched butt enhancement injections, many women continue to put their lives at risk.

Miami Gardens police have arrested a man (pictured above) who posed as a fake doctor to conduct unauthorized plastic surgery procedures on a woman who required hospitalization afterwards.

Cops say 30-year-old Oneal Ron Harris injected a substance consisting of cement, "fix-a-flat," mineral oil, and "super glue," into his victim as a butt enhancement and then sealed the incision with "super glue."

The injections resulted in what police called a "serious medical condition," requiring the victim to be hospitalized.
Miami Gardens Police say Morris also performed a similar procedure on himself. Source

Body Image Disturbance (BID), or Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is a mental illness that is on the rise in the black community. Celebrities such as Nicki Minaj and Kim Kardashian help to perpetuate the myth that bizarrely altering a woman's body parts will bring them riches and fame.

Rather than improve a woman's low perception of herself, the illegal butt injections often results in depression, serious illness or death.
