Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy, in case you hadn’t heard. How dare she remove those ticking time bombs from her chest, amiright? Like, hasn’t she learned by now that her body is public domain and we all get to vote on what she does with it? Sheesh, how selfish can ya get.
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.
this is exactly why i hate those “save the boobies” campaigns because they are literally ALL ABOUT THE BOOBS and they don’t give a single fuck about the person behind the pair of breasts. this is something someone is doing to protect themselves down the line to PREVENT BREAST CANCER, yet they’re getting shamed for it because OMG BOOBS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PART EVER. no. fuck that. power to angelina jolie for doing what she thinks is best for herself and her body. you do you.

Also, I’d say that things like “Save the Tatas!” makes it harder for men to be taken seriously when they say they have breast cancer. Men do get breast cancer, and they’ve been denied coverage because only women get breast cancer.
I feel like this kind of derails the post, but “Save the Tatas!” sucks for everyone.
President Obama stopped shaking hands for a moment today so that he could embrace a sobbing woman whose uninsured sister recently died of colon cancer.
But people don’t die of cancer anymore according Republican Chris Collins of NY.
