cartoon: How to Decrease Body Size
Some people will go to any lengths, including bending the words, to separate themselves from others they don't like or disagree with. I've experienced this myself several times... being cut off from others because of my differences or because I offended them in some way. But there have also been times when others have felt cut off from me because I didn't agree with them or thought that I couldn't commune with them.¬† There are different way to thin out your body, to help it lose weight and trim down to a more pleasing size. You can starve parts of your body (like fasting to lose weight). You can neglect parts of your body (atrophy). You can bind parts of your body (like the Chinese did with the girls' feet). Or the quickest and more permanent way... just cut parts off! I suppose the healthiest way would be to exercise your body, and the parts that don't want to have any part of it will eventually fade away. I fear that most alienated people out there haven't been cut off in healthy ways.
