it reminds me of what Randall Munroe said:
“The frustrating thing about the “Save the Boobies” campaign and similar things (like the “Booberday” meme going around G+) is that they get it exactly backward. Often, the point of breast cancer treatment is to destroy some or all of the boobies in order to save the woman.
Saying that we should work to cure this disease because it threatens breasts is really upsetting. For starters, it suggests that women are worth saving because they’re attached to breasts, rather than the other way around. But worse, it tells any woman who’s had a mastectomy to try to save her life that she’s lost the thing that made people care about her survival. What a punch in the stomach.”
As a woman, (while they have the right to their opinion) this person’s response irks me. The point of the “Save the Boobies” and similar campaigns is to improve awareness of the plight of breast cancer and to encourage women (and men, because men get it, too) to stay on top of their breast health by doing monthly self-exams; it has nothing to do with reducing anyone to their breasts.
