Angelina Jolie undergoes double mastectomy
Is this the latest form of public female mutilation?
Do you think that if the genetic odds were the same for other forms of cancer: liver, brain etc, those organs would be amputated?
Could this public mutilation of the symbols of womanhood be a further act of the masculinisation of women by popular American media and by Western science.
What was she thinking...really? (and yes I do know her aunt died of breast cancer shortly after.)
