Plastic Surgery Ads Insulting to Reader

April 29, 1993

Let me first congratulate you on your excellent job. However, the fact that your 10-page section (March 18) carries four advertisements for plastic surgery is insulting to me as a Latina and a woman.

I know you need the ads, but you're defeating the purpose of Nuestro Tiempo, because those ads convey to women and Latinas that there's something wrong with us. That we need to be skinny, have big breasts and a perfect body. That we should change our noses, which are indigenous looking, for short European ones.

There's nothing wrong with us. We're good enough as we are.
