Sometimes NSFW. ;)
The rape rate of the United States is four times higher than that of Pakistan but you have white people more concerned about saving those “helpless” brown women from brown men in another continent under thinly veiled racism. You don’t care for these women; you only need a reason to justify your racism. On both sides, women continue suffering.
[Audience giving a standing ovation]
Two other women, also breast cancer survivors, said their husbands left them after they were diagnosed. Both had to have mastectomies (in case anyone doesn’t know, this is the surgical operation to remove one or both breasts).
The first woman said her husband told her that he would rather see her dead than see her lose her breasts. The second woman had her operation and waited all day to be picked up by her husband, who never arrived. By nightfall, one of the nurses offered to give her a ride, and she came home to find the house empty.
Obviously, these are extreme cases of a man’s reaction to his wife’s breast cancer, but this is what I see when I see the “I ♥ Boobies” bracelets. I see love of the body parts, not the person being treated—not the patient, not the victim, not the survivor.
oh my god this is heartbreaking
