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.
In here lie spoilers if you haven’t watched it yet.
I really like this explanation! Makes a lot of sense!
That like, remember what happened when Ten and his companions all flew the TARDIS together in Journey’s End. Imagine if that happened with the Eleventh Doctor, like Amy, Rory, River, Clara, Craig, Archie, Angie, Jenny, Vastra, and Strax like just imagine. I would be so excited.
Just…whoa. Spoilers to follow. My reactions to the ep.
