Implants Discrimination?

In real life we all know that breast implants, otherwise known as fake boobs exist. Some love'em.... some hate'em. But never have I ever heard of a case of implant discrimination in a nudist resort no matter how large the implants may be. But why am I bringing this up?

In the world of SecondLife everything is "fake".... and we like it that way. Nothing is real..... NO ONE looks like the avatar they have created and there's a reason for that. It's our "Second Life". In real life I'm pretty confident in saying we're not all 6 foot 7 inches tall with perfectly shaped fat free bodies and live in sky boxes. But in SL almost everyone is a GOD or GODDESS with perfect hair, makeup and complexion to match. Not everyone in real life has really large or even extremely large fake boobs.... but they exist.

About a year ago I went to a Nudist Resort in SL. Now to avoid legal action I will not tell you who they are but... they aren't hard to find *winks*. I was wearing my Lolas Natural Implants and had them set to about a size of 42-DD. I teleported to a nudist resort I had heard of and strolled around the entrance. I read all the notecard rules and determined I was not too large or as they say "overly sexual". Now before I go on.... "overly sexual"?!?! Isn't being nude and showing off your bits to everyone sexual enough? what exactly is "overly sexual"? I'm confused. Anyway... I paid the membership fee and entered the sim hassle free for a few days. Then one day wearing the EXACT same sized implants I get an IM from a "Beach Guard" telling me I'm too large and "overly sexual" and need to down size my apparently enormous fake boobs. Weird.... girls with implants don't go to nudist resorts in real life? So we discussed it and the guard wouldn't budge so I left the group and was not refunded my money... which I didn't expect anyway.

A few months later my friend tells me that this same nudist resort relaxed a bit on their "no fake boobs" rule and so I decided to show up again wearing the exact same size implants but this time my Icons. I went right up to the nearest guard and asked if "these" were fine.... they said they were and so I rejoined and enjoyed the sim for about 2 months..... until today.

I get a notice about a little beach party they are having and I decide to show up wearing my Christmas hat, basket and candy canes. The people there said hello and everything was fine... then the IM comes telling me I'm too large and need to down size. This time I argue a little that I was told the rules have changed and so on... again... they wont budge... I'm wrong and they are right. So again I left... quit the group... no refund. But this time... never to return.

Now after reading this some of you might be thinking that it's their sim and they have a right to run it any way they please and I agree with you 100%. I was upset at first but now I'm much more calm about it and decided to post this little "adventure" of mine. However I will say this: To all of you lovers of implants. DON'T change who you are to enter a sim. YOU are the customer. YOU are the traffic. YOU are the ones who spread the word when you like a sim or not. If you find a sim that discriminates against Implants then don't support them. If these so called nudist resorts can't comprehend the fact that real life nudist resorts have women with implants then they don't deserve our business. We are a large and powerful community and I for one am VERY proud to be a part of it. So to all you implant lovers I say..... Wear those Tig-ol'-Bitties loud and proud and NEVER change who you are for ANYONE!

Hmmm... maybe I need larger ones now *winks* ;P

What a crock. I am astounded that they would do that. What is wrong with someone's head to have an issue with big boobs? I'm shemale in SL and have never been given crap from any resort staff for being a tall black woman with a penis. Sheesh... that's just wild. Sorry Shay, the place is poorer without you.

Hear hear!

The whole POINT of Second Life is to be more than who you are in Real (First) Life. More healthy, more attractive, more outgoing, more who you feel YOU are.

So I am a 'passive activist' when it comes to implants. I support businesses that cater to them. I donate to sims that make implant wearers welcome. I help people with finding resources for their implants, and socialize with them more often than not. And all the Lindens I spend (which is a considerable amount!) do NOT go to businesses that are implant-hostile.

Think about that. Second Life has an economy, and implant fashion and tolerance are a big part of that economy. We can, and do, affect the market forces within the system.

All that said, the one time I've been told to vacate a sim for not being modest enough? it wasn't because of the rack. It was a Formal Dress Required locale, and I needed to cover my legs!

Kylie.... you know the sim I'm talking about. In fact... you were one of the witnesses to me being there with implants and NOT being harrassed. Standing/dancing right next to their "Beach Guard". Remember? LMAO!! They have no problem with you wearing a prim cock, but apparently my 42-DDs is too "overly sexual" for them... wha? O.o

I bet it was the Wild Coast nudist resort.
Anyway, I think the natural larger droopy breasts are far more arousing than the enhanced ones. Very grabbable ;)

There's a reason I don't even try going to places like that... I fully expect to be immediately removed looking like this

Shayna Korobase said...

Hayley.... I can completely understand why most of them would kick you. Those are HUGE!!! I however wouldn't kick you from my sim.... in fact you are more then welcome to visit any time. My boobs as you see in the picture above were quite normal sized yet they asked me to tone them down anyway. Ignorant people plain and simple.

I agree with you wholeheartedly on not changing. I have been how I look for the past 4-5 years. If any sim has issue with my look tough cookies. And if they ask me to remove them, I just kindly leave. No harm done and non taken. I usually always ask one or two admins ahead of time if it is ok. If I see them wavering in their answer I know the deal. Lol, one RP sim I went to, the guy was telling me "pretend the coldness brought the swelling down." Nope not RP-ing there. Now as far as Nudist resorts go, they're funny with the idea of "Nudity" from what I know it's the Idea of being naked and not having it be a sexual thing. Sort of like wearing clothes but just.. with out the clothes. Bear in mind there is a slight difference between a nudist beach and a nude beach. The former is for those who look at nudity in a non sexual way. The later is just a relaxing of rules for everyone who are daring enough to do it. There was one beach I went to that was clothing optional and nobody had issue at all and I've been there many bikini's
