Yes, I think research should be done to try to understand why people are so critical and condemning of others who don't meet their esthetic standards. And I think this is becoming more so all the time. It use to be if you look old or has some cosmetic flaw that it was accepted as who you were- now people are expected to head for a plastic surgeon to get it fixed. I actually heard a lady on one of those TV "makeover" shows say that anyone who looks over thirty doesn't care enough about themselves to do something about it. Geeezh.
