MANGBETU TRIBE AND SKULL ELONGATION

Here’s something intense.

The Mangbetu tribe elongated their skulls. The custom is called Lipombo. It was a status and beauty symbol but the Belgian government soon outlawed it. 

They managed to achieve this by wrapping the heads of newborns tightly with cloth to give them a streamlined look. 

MORE INFORMATION

that has to be painful.

It kind of reminds me of the foot binding in China. The world had (still has) some intense standards of beauty 

Or the neck braces in some parts of Africa, where they stretch the neck to be incredibly long with metal hoops.

Or this strange medical procedure where they cut open chest flesh and insert these silicone gel implants.

Strange world we live in! 

yess the bottom comment haha

Boob implants may not be as severe as the above mentioned since children aren’t going through it and it doesn’t cripple someone for life, but I was just trying to make a point.

when people say that abortion should only be legal in cases of rape it only proves that people don’t give two fucks about the fetus’s life, they just want to punish women for getting pregnant

one of my favourite superstitions is this one they have in china where ghosts allegedly can’t turn corners, so in shanghai they built a bridge made entirely of 90° turns to ward off the evil spirits
