I wonder if fitness models realize their too-huge fake tits take away from the hard work on their fantastic bodies. Unless those muscles are fake, too.
Using similar words from one of your recent blog posts: If what another person does with their body bothers you so much, get a therapist.
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."
