** It's not just women. In his autobiography, Malcolm X talked about getting a conk when he was a teenager, and regularly had one for many years - until he realized how foolish he was being burning his flesh just so he could "look white".

* During Jean Grey and Storm's first social outing in ''ComicBook/XMen'', Jean is horrified to see that Ororo is naked after she whisks away her superhero costume, since her [[NationalGeographicNudity Kenyan tribe]] had no [[InnocentFanserviceGirl nudity taboo]]. Jean hurriedly finds something for Ororo to wear, who mentions that the outfit is uncomfortable. Jean replies, "Just don't breathe or sit down and you'll be fine." After getting used to Western fashion, however, Ororo generally averts this trope, preferring loose-fitting garments (her Punk phase notwithstanding) and sensible shoes.

** Suntans are also an example of how times and cultures can change so drastically over time; before the Industrial Revolution, suntans were seen as ugly and a sign that one was poor, being forced to work out in the sun all day. Nowadays, with the large majority of people working indoors, often in front of a computer, a suntan is seen as sttractive, as it meant you were wealthy enough to leave your job sometimes and be in the sun.

** The same goes for many pure bred cats and dogs, who often must endure crippling genetic diseases and abnormalities for the sake of adhering to (rather capricious) standardized breeding shapes

** The same goes for many pure bred cats and dogs, who often must endure crippling genetic diseases and abnormalities for the sake of adhering to (rather capricious) standardized breeding shapesshapes. One example is preserving the classic "golden retriever" type; breeders would sometimes resort to ''inbreeding'' their dogs, which, unsurprisingly, led to a myriad of defects, including hip degeneration.

** Another segmented focused on a chick that wanted a big butt to help her music career (ItMakesSenseInContext). Because she didn't have the money to afford professional surgery, she instead let some shady guy inject calking compound in her butt cheeks. The quack accidentally injects some into into an artery which causes a fatal embolism.
