But you guys, you guys, you don’t understand! HE beat cancer his own way. Therefore, anyone can do it the exact same way. Unfortunately, he can’t tell his secret to just anyone, or their heads will explode. But if people were only ready for HIM and HIS ANSWERS, then they wouldn’t have to die from cancer. Ever. He’s got the cure for everyone, but he just can’t share it.
It’s really sad, because Angelina Jolie is now just a puppet who “disfigured” herself.
Also, I’m just not listening to him because he doesn’t have a vagina.
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.
Under Moffat’s watch the Doctor has morphed from an alien who loves humans and feels their pain and experiences love and desire and empathy to a stunted, child-like and extremely bloody irritating space-goon who flaps about like an injured moth when other people’s emotions are making him uncomfortable. And makes sexist jokes about how women are scary. And wants his married companions to sleep in bunk beds. And can save human lives but does not seem to understand human feelings. Who would travel with this man? He might be zany and charming and have nice boots, but he is fundamentally cold and unrelatable.
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.
When you grow up as a girl, the world tells you the things that you are supposed to be: emotional, loving, beautiful, wanted. And then when you are those things, the world tells you they are inferior: illogical, weak, vain, empty. The world teaches you that the way you exist in it is disgusting — you watch boys cringe backward in your dorm room when you talk about your period, blue water pretending to be blood in a maxi pad commercial. It is little things, and it is constant. In a food court in a mall, after you go to the gynecologist for the first time, you and your friend talk about how much it hurts, and over her shoulder you watch two boys your age turn to look at you and wrinkle their noses: the reality of your life is impolite to talk about. The world says that you don’t have a right to the space you occupy, any place with men in it is not yours, you and your body exist only as far as what men want to do with it. At fifteen, you find fifteen-year-old boys you have never met somehow believe you should bend your body to their will. At almost thirty, you find fifteen-year-old boys you have never met still somehow believe you should bend your body to their will. They are children. They are children.
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 heart weeps for this poor soul.
I wonder why no one wants to have sex with him.
