Just when I thought that American culture had already reached the lowest and most unholy depths of abomination and depravity (haha anyone ever heard of a bug party?), we get this news.
I used to wonder as a kid how there could be civilizations like the Aztecs, where all their shit was bedecked in death imagery, and you look at their stuff and think, "Damn what a fuckin depraved and miserable, gloomy motherfucker of a civilization." But then by about 2006, it became clear that the next generation was thoroughly immersed without question in the contemporary zombie skull and death cult. Women cheering the amputation of their breasts is definitely like a qualitative new low for mankind.
she didn't want to die like her mom
it's her body she'll do what she wants with it
a woman is more than her body parts
medical advancements aren't all bad
you see where i'm going with this
I didn't see a link so I just posted the first google search result and assume this is the story.
having a genetic cancer myself and having had the suspect chunk of bowel removed I understand exactly how she feels. If telling every one about it helps her cope and makes other people feel better about them doing the same where's the problem? plus they aren't cheering the loss of their breasts, they are cheering the fact that they've reduced the chance of dying from a nasty disease quite considerably.
7 percent, according to the article that I read...
I am amused by much of this narrative, but the emergent trend that I am noticing on facebook is that the same women who criticize religion for its views of women and sexuality are cheering the mutilation of implicitly cancerous femininity.

this reminds me of a series of pics i saw of a dude getting a poker card burn scarred onto his body *just because*
'i should get a mastectomy too!'

Not until right now. I went right to urban dictionary to see what it was. Thanks. Thanks a lot.
In the near future, there will be a parade of irrelevant celebrity males all assuring us that scarrified craters are so hot.
