Yesterday I saw a very cheerful girl on the Jiangsu Province local TV. She is not ugly, but her thoughts really scared me. This little girl said she wanted to sell one of her kidneys to raise money for her cosmetic surgery. The young girl went to a cosmetic surgery hospital in Nanjing, and the doctors refused the request after they found out about her plan. Doctors recommended her to go see a psychiatrist.
The psychiatrist said that the girl does not have physiological problems, and her mind is quite sharp actually. Maybe it had to do with the nick names her classmates gave her over long periods of time, she said she is not good looking and was also rejected at many job interviews after schooling. Therefore she thought it (not able to find a job) has to do with her being not so good looking. She comes from the rural area and has no money for cosmetic surgery, so she came up with this idea.
Later the doctors at the plastic surgery hospital told the girl that in fact she is not bad looking at all, if she still insists on having the cosmetic surgery then they will give it to her for free. However this act was not approved by the psychologists, they think it will not help the girl to gain back her self-confidence, adapt to the society and find the correct path for herself. I think the doctors are right; we should rely on our own strength in this society. After all, the society still needs to operate, if we all rely on looks, and worse yet the looks after plastic surgery, how are we going to live? Are we not able to face people with our true self anymore?
Here is the video of the news
In the video: her name is Wu Qian, just graduated from a Medical University in Xuzhou this June. She told the reporter that she repeatedly failed to find a job after graduated from college since June. She suspected it had to do with her ugly looks.
They all wanted to interview in person, “Face Exam” or “Face Meeting”. What does that mean? Image is first, they all say image represents the company’s image. I blame they are too good looking, not that I am ugly, haha
(editor’s note: interview in person is 面试 (mianshi), literally Face Exam or 面议 （mianyi） literally Face Meeting)
This plan is too stubborn, too crazy, is not acceptable… for starters selling kidney is illegal in our country, is not permitted…
