    Question Ear Gauging












    Ear stretching is a modification practiced by and originating from indigenous people of color. Tribes in various countries in Africa, Asia, Native American tribes and other indigenous lands have practiced the ritual of ear stretching for cultural, religious and traditional purposes. It has been appropriated in America and various European countries by Caucasian people who have seen this ritual in either photos or videos and either thought it looked 'cool' or maybe really admired it, but either way it is appropriated and originates from People of Color. This is a ritual that has been practiced by people of color all over the world from ancient times. Bone, horn, wood, and stone were generally carved for ear stretching, but other organic materials that had the right shape naturally, from shells to teeth and claws, were also used. Ancient Egyptian pharaoh King Tutankhamen is of one of the earliest known to have stretched ear lobes. It can clearly be seen in one of his more famous images on his sarcophagus.

    Mummified bodies with stretched earlobes have been discovered, including the oldest mummified body discovered to date: Ötzi the Iceman (3300BC
    This mummy had a stretch of somewhere between 7–11 millimeters (0.28–0.43 in) in diameter.

    Gautama BuddhaGautama Buddha, an aristocratic and wealthy prince, had long stretched ears. He wore heavy gold earrings or precious stones as a status symbol, and the weight stretched his ear lobes dramatically. When he finally renounced his wealth and discarded his jewelry, his ear lobes were permanently stretched As a way of remembering Buddha's act of personal self-sacrifice in walking away from his wealth, all succeeding images of Gautama Buddha show his stretched ear lobes sans jewelery.

    I quite like tunnels and plugs. I would never get one (I have two piercings in each ear and getting a tunnel would ruin that. Also, I'm not willing to put myself through the pain of ear stretching).
    But I think it's kinda cool when my friends who had them in school would hang things like earphones or pencils in the holes left behind by their tunnels or plugs.

    How any self-respecting Aryan person can like these degenerate negroid trappings is far, far beyond me. Having your ears gauged should be a litmus test for deportation to Africa. You want to look like negroes, you can go live with them.

    Wrong. So very, very wrong.
    There are a few people where I work who have tattoos and piercings, myself included.
    Obviously for health and safety reasons any facial piercings have to be removed, as do plugs and tunnels, but they'll employ you even if you have them.

    I fully support making something which is ugly (the human body) even uglier, and I have nothing but admiration for anyone who endeavours to reach his maximum ugliness potential.

    I have no idea how you could be so misanthropic as to really believe something like this. We are the Aryans, the people of light. We are beautiful, our bodies are beautiful (if we maintain them). We should not hate ourselves, but be all we can be, and ripping our earlobes apart does not further that goal.

    I think small gauges are ok, I don't get the appeal of the really large ones. They don't look good to me and it seems so painful!


    I'm a wuss though, it took me years to get my ears pierced.
    Proud to be Germanic.

    Even though my ancestry is English, Germany is my favorite country.
