My Boobs! My Decision!
She outlined her personal experiences and reasoning for the decision in her article.
With a history of Breast Cancer in her family, and news from her doctors that she had an 87% chance of developing breast cancer. I think her choice was informed. Either way, it was her choice to make.
Reading commentary on a Facebook post of Nicholas Kristof , I have to tell you I was surprised at first, but now not so much.
‘Expect sympathy and claims of bravery’
‘This is a ridiculous approach..’
Women can be bitches.
Angelina wrote, ‘I am writing about it now because I hope that other women can benefit from my experience.’
I’m thinking women commenting perhaps did not read the article, or have the ‘not-so-rare’ ailment of selective reading. Perhaps the tree growing out of their own eyes are helping them to identify the splinters in others. *snorks* Throwing around all sorts of assumptions about the reasoning for her decision, one woman made the statement that it was Jolie’s;
‘Slick way of getting a breast enhancement’
Sure, some of us have boobs that would get gravel rash if we went running around without our bra’s on (me), or that could be described as inverted mosquito bites.
‘A slick way of getting a breast enhancement’
I don’t expect all women agree with me. I DO expect women to present their varying opinions and provide reasoning for it. (The non trolling, intelligent ones who care about being credible) At least then, I’ve opportunity to understand where they are coming from.
We do not need to agree with each other. We also do not need to attack each other.
I don’t know if I’d do the same thing in her position. However, I respect her right to make her own choices. I’ve still got my boobs. I like them. I have no intention or reason to cut them off. That stated, I appreciate Jolies personal testimony. Testimony that will provide some comfort to people who HAVE had similar experiences.
‘Her Boobs! Her Decision!’
