school starts in an hour and I’m thinking of quick ways I could hang myself
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.
#there are people out there that I would like to throw off a cliff#like these two gentlemen that were mentioned#like… are you serious?#you married this woman and leave her because she undertakes a fucking terrifying operation to safe HER LIFE?! REALLY?!#WHAT KIND OF SHITBAG ARE YOU?! (x)
I hate it when people talk to me about weight but I can’t say anything bc this is a pretty normal thing to talk about u know
