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.
Aaand two brief comments to add to this:
One: She had her “bombs” recreated, probably fucking perfectly, because she has the money to hire the best plastic surgeons out there, so it’s not like it’s a huge change for her — just some fat, tissue and mammary glands being replaced with saline. Celebrities usually get breast jobs done as they age and no one complains — but suddenly when she does it for health reasons at a relatively young age, it’s a huge deal?
Two: It’s her body. It’s her body. It’s her body. I don’t care if she (or anyone else) had breasts removed for medical reasons or because they decided that the Evil Alien Zod would find them more attractive without breasts. It’s her fucking body and she has the right to do whatever she wants with it. I would get my breasts removed in a heartbeat if I had the money to do so, and I don’t see why I should be judged for making a choice based on aesthetics or on health about my own body.
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.

I don’t know what I was expecting but it was most certainly not this
When I saw a hot guy without a shirt, this is definitely not what I was expecting, but goddamn it I love it.
I hate the term “skinny-fat.” Sure, it describes a situation in which a person may be of “normal” weight but unhealthy, but from what I’ve seen it’s mainly used as a way to bully people who aren’t ripped. I may just be lurking in the wrong corners of the internet, but people who are “normal” weight but not muscular are often called skinny-fat, and often bullied and pushed into starting an exercise program or going to the gym.
Now, if you have an unhealthy diet that consists mainly of Doritos and mountain dew and are still skinny, then you should probably fix your diet because that is not healthy. BUT if you eat your fruits and veggies and don’t lead a completely sedentary lifestyle, then if you’re a little squishy that’s fine. I just hate seeing exercise freaks putting people down because they’re not completely toned or they don’t have a six-pack.
That’s my little rant for today.
Depression Part 2 by Hyperbole and a Half is the most important thing you’ll read all day.
Christ. This hit pretty close to home. A powerful and insightful read.
My spouse and I read this comic this morning together over coffee. While still hilarious, it’s also very serious. With depression/suicidal thoughts being part of schizophrenia, when we got to the phrase “No, see, I don’t necessarily want to KILL myself… I just want to become dead somehow” I just nodded slowly.
That was exactly how I felt during most of high school. I just wanted to stop existing. I love this comic so much, words escape me.
