Am I allowed to tell this joke at parties??
She is so satisfied with that joke.
Two other women, also breast cancer survivors, said their husbands left them after they were diagnosed. Both had to have mastectomies (in case anyone doesn’t know, this is the surgical operation to remove one or both breasts).
The first woman said her husband told her that he would rather see her dead than see her lose her breasts. The second woman had her operation and waited all day to be picked up by her husband, who never arrived. By nightfall, one of the nurses offered to give her a ride, and she came home to find the house empty.
Obviously, these are extreme cases of a man’s reaction to his wife’s breast cancer, but this is what I see when I see the “I ♥ Boobies” bracelets. I see love of the body parts, not the person being treated—not the patient, not the victim, not the survivor.
This is just crazy… I wish I could say “some people” but this isn’t “some people”. This is how many men view women. This is how we’re taught to value them.
This is disgusting. Maybe I’m tripping cuz its 6 in the morning reading this just really bothered me.
You gon have a woman that you decided you felt for enough, cared about enough, loved enough to commit to them for the rest of your life but you don’t have enough integrity to stay with her because she lost her breasts? You would/did trust a woman to be the mother of your children, but you no longer love her because she lost her breasts?
How many cowards adhere to this way of thinking?(via thetpr)
Me when I’m forced to go anywhere.
