Angelina Jolie Undergoes Mastectomy To Avoid Breast Cancer; Losers Mourn Her Boobs, Send Brad Pitt Condolences
In a piece for the New York Times, Angelina Jolie revealed she underwent a preventative double mastectomy. I’m not going to summarize it here because you should hear it coming from her. If you haven’t yet read it, you really should read it right now here.
Angelina Jolie shared a personal story in hopes of raising awareness on a number of issues, from the surgery itself to the affordability of the gene test…
…wait. what’s that coming just over those hills? Why, it’s the sexists and misogynists! Because you see WOMEN’S HEALTH is not about the WOMAN, people! It’s about the poor menz who are now ‘stuck’ with their (as in ownership of, don’t your forget it!) woman!
(Throw in a dash of racism with your misogyny? Hell, why not!)
Everyone couldn’t be the first to think of “poor Brad Pitt” like Josh above, but man did the tweets thinking of “poor Brad Pitt” keep coming…
“He lost *his* ‘tittays’.” Poor Brad Pitt lost something he apparently owned, Angelina Jolie’s breasts themselves! And, yes, people (i.e. virgins) mourned her boobs themselves as if Angelina Jolie was some sort of villain who had some diabolical reason behind doing this.
“I bet he wished he stayed with Jen now.” Oh, boy. You mean to tell me some losers used lower her risk for breast cancer as a way to attack Angelina Jolie over Jennifer Aniston?, you ask. No, I mean to tell you that MANY losers used lowering her risk for breast cancer as a way to attack Angelina Jolie over Jennifer Aniston. (And if you assumed there would be “karma” tweets, you assumed correctly!)
Here’s a slew of folks who think Angelina Jolie removed her breasts because she’s an “attention whore”! Because nothing says good publicity in Hollywood like already being a sex icon and then going ahead and having your breasts removed…
If none of the winners above quite did it for you, here’s a mish-mash of really smart people. Just replace “smart” with “dumb, thank you…
Yeah, Angelina. I can’t believe you didn’t even TAKE THE RISK OF CANCER just so Brad Pitt can enjoy your (which he owns, don’t forget) boobs while having sex. Because, don’t forget girls, you’re just sexual play toys for men and nothing more!
Too bad you got the story completely wrong. I call you a douchebag.
Yes, because without breasts, there are absolutely no good reasons whatsoever for a guy to stay with their significant other…
Yup. You hear that, ladies? Without your boobs / bewbz / tits / tittys / rack / fun bags / whatever other dumb terms these fine people use for a woman’s breasts…you are apparently pointless.
Except, you’re not. Screw these haters who’ve probably never seen a bare breast in their life. And good for you, Angelina. It’s your life and your body, no one else’s.
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.
In response to the news that Angelina Jolie opted to undergo a double mastectomy as a preventative measure so that she wouldn’t face an 87% chance of developing breast cancer and potentially dying, I cannot help but notice a disgusting trend in some of the comments from men. The sentiment behind these statements is nothing short of revolting. A woman is not her breasts.
comments like those make me wanna shoot myself and pronto
Wow. People are dicks.
Did we miss the part about the reconstructive part of the surgery? coz the way I read her piece, she has tits, just not the ones she had before.
Is it just me or are all of those comments by men? Because of course, let’s completely miss the point, where she’s getting preventative surgery for CANCER, and instead focus on the important part - no longer will men be able to see her naked breasts in movies.
Because that’s really what we should be focusing on.
Reminds me of this post
WOW. This is the douchiest thing ever. This is part of why I hate that “Save the Tatas” and “Save Second Base” thing. Obviously two bags of fat are more important than the lives of women.
Tim Lambesis of Christian metal band As I Lay Dying was arrested Tuesday night in a murder-for-hire plot. Apparently, he did the nice Christian thing and tried to hire a hitman to MURDER his wife, who was filing for divorce. More like As I Lazily Lay on the Couch While Someone Else Does My Dirty Work, I guess?
Anyway, what do you do when you hear about the lead singer of this band you like attempted to KILL his ex? Well, YOU BLAME HER BECAUSE SHE’S MOST LIKELY A BITCH WHO PROBABLY DESERVED TO DIE, OF COURSE!
Lots of very opinionated people out there saying “WAIT ‘TIL WE HEAR MORE BEFORE WE BLAME POOR TIM” and then proceeding to jump straight to the conclusion that his wife was somehow a terrible person deserving of death!
“Props dude for having the balls to hire someone else to kill your wife!”
And as usual, when it comes to ANYTHING being discussed on the internet involving a woman…
BLAME THE FEMINISTS.
I was reading an “obscure pregnancy tips” article when I came across a paragraph describing the “little known fact” that at a certain point, you won’t really be able to see your ladybits in order to safely do any hardcore maintenance. I’m like
Whatevs, no big deal.
The article then went on to say that you should find a good waxer in that case, so you don’t upset any unsuspecting wayfarers, you know, like partners and doctors and such.
Let me think for a sec how I feel about being told to let someone wax my puanani so that I don’t upset the delicate sensibilities of any doctors.
So yeah, that’s not going to happen, but thanks for letting me know how horrifying women are and how we should really control all that nonsense down there so we don’t upset people!
They’re just going to have to deal with it! IDGAF if they have to send in a search party once he comes out.
- Woman: I'm smart
- Patriarchy: Well you're probably ugly then
- Woman: I'm creative
- Patriarchy: You mean unattractive right?
- Woman: I have all these incredible accomplishments
- Patriarchy: Yeah but look how ugly you looked doing them
- Woman: I have value
- Patriarchy: Not if you're ugly lol
- Woman: I'm conventionally-attractive & posted selfies on my blog
- Patriarchy: I'm so sick of these empty-headed chicks only caring about their looks. Just because you are attractive and get attention from men doesn't mean you are special or deserve respect. Why don't you read a book or do something productive with your life you dumb slut
I just noticed something strange on Wikipedia. It appears that gradually, over time, editors have begun the process of moving women, one by one, alphabetically, from the “American Novelists” category to the “American Women Novelists” subcategory. So far, female authors whose last names begin with A or B have been most affected, although many others have, too.
The intention appears to be to create a list of “American Novelists” on Wikipedia that is made up almost entirely of men. The category lists 3,837 authors, and the first few hundred of them are mainly men. The explanation at the top of the page is that the list of “American Novelists” is too long, and therefore the novelists have to be put in subcategories whenever possible.
Too bad there isn’t a subcategory for “American Men Novelists.”
IMPORTANT UPDATE the author, Amanda Filipacchi, from Sunday:
“In an Op-Ed article I wrote, published on The New York Times’s Web site on Wednesday, I suggested it was too bad that there wasn’t a subcategory for “American Men Novelists.” And what do you know; shortly after, a new subcategory called exactly that appeared.
But there was more. Much more. As soon as the Op-Ed article appeared, unhappy Wikipedia editors pounced on my Wikipedia page and started making alterations to it, erasing as much as they possibly could without (I assume) technically breaking the rules. They removed the links to outside sources, like interviews of me and reviews of my novels. Not surprisingly, they also removed the link to the Op-Ed article. At the same time, they put up a banner at the top of my page saying the page needed “additional citations for verifications.” Too bad they’d just taken out the useful sources.
In 24 hours, there were 22 changes to my page. Before that, there had been 22 changes in four years. Thursday night, a kind soul went in there and put back the deleted sources. The Wiki editors instantly took them out again.”
Wikipedia is a great resource and actually a really terrible place full of awful people
My mom and I had a brief discussion about misandry last night. She asked me, “Why do you hate men?”
And I was like, “Well, it’s a joke.” A tongue-in-cheek thing that feminists like to do on the internet.
And she said, “No it’s not—you mean it.”
Which is true. I do mean it. So I elaborated: Most men are misogynists; even if you can’t tell right away, just give them a little time, and it’ll come out. I hate that it’s so scary to be a woman. I hate rape culture. I hate the wage gap. I hate slut-shaming. So it’s like, I hate men as an institution; I hate the patriarchy.
But that hatred does extend to quite a few individual men. I hate some of the dudes in my film class. In fact, I hate a lot of the guys I’ve gone to school with over the years. I hate some of my exes. Of course, there are men who I don’t hate—I love my dad heaps. He’s great. At least one of my male cousins is a really cool guy. My most recent ex… well, that’s complicated.
Anyway, I observed to my mother that the big difference between misogyny and misandry is that misogynists don’t see women as human, whereas misandrists just see men as bad humans.
Edit: To be perfectly clear, when I say “men”, I am solely referring to people who self-identify as male. Trans* people who were assigned male at birth do not count, whether they are women or nonbinary, and neither do trans*masculine people who don’t identify as men.
Bolded for perfectness.
Heck yes to that bolded part, damn.
My heart weeps for this poor soul.
I wonder why no one wants to have sex with him.

Whenever a comedian or performer says they aren’t going to say bitch or make jokes about rape after having their first daughter, I always imagine them running around shouting at people in the hospital “Dude I just figured out WOMEN ARE PEOPLE”
it’s better when you realize that their first daughter had to have a mom somewhere
and it just didn’t occur to the comedian or performer that the woman he was having a child with was also a person
