So today Angelina Jolie had double mastectomy, which is the removal of one’s breasts, to prevent Breast cancer. So instead of praising Angelina on her bravery, men on Twitter decided to ridicule her, even calling her stupid for removing her breasts. For those of you on Tumblr that are attacking Feminists about being delusional about sexism against women and misogyny here’s your fucking proof that sexism and misogyny exists.
TW: MENTIONS BREAST CANCER (MASTECTOMY)
This is rape culture. When someone’s sexualized body parts are valued above their health and quality of life, you know many things are wrong with the world.
She had an 86% chance of getting breast/ovarian cancer, and now the chances are 5%. Her mom died of of ovarian cancer and she doesn’t want her kids to go through what she went through. And now she can be around for her kids and be there for them as they grow up, without having to worry about that 86% risk for cancer. I applaud her decision.
WHAT THE FUCK
"Love feels no burden, thinks nothing of its trouble, attempts what is above its strength, pleads no excuse for impossibility, for it thinks all things are lawful for itself and all things are possible."
