WE NEED FEMINISM BECAUSE WHEN LANCE ARMSTRONG GOT CANCER AND LOST A TESTICLE IT WAS ALL ABOUT HIS HEALTH AND HOW INSPIRATIONAL HE WAS BUT WHEN ANGELINA JOLIE GETS A DOUBLE MASTECTOMY TO PREVENT HERSELF FROM GETTING CANCER, IT’S ALL ABOUT HOW SHE WON’T BE A SEX SYMBOL ANYMORE AND HOW MEN ARE OFFENDED CAUSE SHE WON’T BE AN OBJECT FOR THEM
I’m pretty sure I reblog this already but this need to be reblog again
like i get that the reaction to Angelina Jolie’s decision was disgusting and horrific this comparison is dumb because of 2 things:
1. she never actually had cancer, she preemptively had the surgery to remove the high risk of cancer. This is a completely rational decision to my mind, but to many seems like gluing a hockey mask to your face forever to avoid getting hit with a hockey puck, as apposed to Armstrong having no choice but to lose a testicle because it was cancerous and would without a single doubt kill him otherwise.
2. When was the last time you saw full magazines, blogs, tumblrs, and websites dedicated to just pictures of balls. people like breasts. men and women.
nobody likes a bollock.
