Drawing the Line at “Bro-tox”

We were discouraged by a profile on Good Morning America yesterday about the rising popularity of Botox among men.

According to plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Griffin, “There’s a competition in our society for looks. Better-looking men get paid more and they get the prettier girls.”

As you might expect, we see things slightly differently...
