I think my favorite thing about Vine is that all of these people are making friends with other people in their area and doing Vines with them. Same goes with random ass celebrities becoming friends because of Vine.
I don’t know. I think that’s interesting and cool.
UM EXCUSE ME FUCK ALL OF YOU
I spit out my coffee. Holy balls.
who said this was okay? cause its not
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.
are you fucking kidding me
Things you should know about Jolie and her mastectomy.
A. the tests and procedures took 3 months. It didn’t happen “today.”
B. her breasts were reconstructed with implants (this is normal in these kinds of procedures). she didn’t “chop off” her boobs. and she’s not going to look much different than before.
C. these procedures are very expensive and aren’t usually covered by insurance (which is a god damn shame).
D. she’s obviously not doing it for “attention.” Again, it took 3 months, and she has kept it a secret the whole time (and keeping a secret when you are Angelina Jolie isn’t that easy).
E. She has a (very) rare mutation that makes her (very) much more likely to develop breast cancer that is even worse than ‘normal’ breast cancer. She didn’t just randomly do it.
F. Preventative mastectomy is not the only way to deal with having this mutation, but when you are Angelina Jolie and are very busy and very rich, it is clearly the best choice. (The other option is basically getting screened much more often than the average person for early dectection).
G. The entire point of Jolie sharing her story is to let women know that there are options before and after you’ve been diagnosed, and that you should be diligent in taking care of yourself, no matter how scary it all seems. Which I think is a good message.
Those tweets pretty much demonstrate why I dislike the “I <3 Boobies” bracelets/campaign. It kind of undermines that there is a person attached to those boobs. The woman is worth saving, not the tits.
