drawing the line

Where to draw the line pops up yet again: In North Carolina, 3 Sentenced for Castration `dungeon':

Superior Court Judge Dennis Winner said it was difficult to call the dungeon's willing patients "victims," but he said six castrations performed there were certainly a crime.

"I think this is a type of perversion that cannot be tolerated by society," Winner said during a sentencing hearing Thursday.

So, say, botox, killing off portions of your face, is fine, but cutting off your nuts isn't?

Botox doesn't kill off your face. It wears off after a period of some weeks or a few months. Nuts don't grow back.
