Today I overheard an 11-year-old girl—one I know to have a very high-strung, appearance-obsessed mother—complaining that her teeth were too small.

Maybe I'm overreacting in my assessment that this is yet another symptom of a gender gone mad, but hey: Enough is enough, you lunatics. Teeth are not ornamental. If you have the ability to chew food, then your teeth are a perfectly fine size.

The same exact message applies to anyone who's ever tried to tell me that lifting weights might make me "bulky." If "bulky" is what happens when I am strong and functioning well, then so be it. Arms and legs are not ornamental either.
