im so sick of the bloody sexualisation of breasts to raise awareness for their health
like whenever there is a a campaign to raise awareness for breast cancer it has to be pink and show the “feminine” aspects of breasts by calling breasts by slang terms like “boobs” or “girls”
BREAST CANCER IS A FUCKING DISEASE THAT AFFECTS REAL LIVING PEOPLE do we have to be sexualised in every part of our daily lives, including our diagnosis?????
it totally perpetuates the idea that people with breasts’ body is valuable if it fits within the criteria of what is “conventionally attractive”
and it’s obvious that a cancerous body is unattractive, therefore not valuable
so we fucking OPENLY SEXUALISE A PERSON’S BODY TO RAISE AWARENESS FOR IT’S HEALTH
Something Does Not Need To Be sexualised for It To Be Important !!!!!!!
it’s also a really transphobic practice because campaigns are typically “feminine” and use non-anatomic terminology, but as we all know, not all women have breasts and there are men who have breasts so ????? where does it leave this demographic?????? where is the comfort for a trans man who is diagnosed with breast cancer?????
if you want some examples :
its spring truly but it is summer weather like its been almost 30 everyday and its gross an di hate it
***URGENT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT***
Grindr, a popular app for gay men, now carries an urgent warning for users in Egypt. According to many sources, Egyptian authorities are posing as LGBT people on various social media sites to identify and arrest homosexual people. The app is urging users in the region to proceed with extreme caution, especially when identifying themselves or arranging meetings/hookups. While so far the focus seems to be on gay men, all LGBT people in the area should be cautious. Reports show that Egyptian police have carried out violent raids on private homes which lead to the arrests of several gay men. These men were then subjected to disturbing medical “exams.” Police also raided an LGBT party last year, violently arresting many and sentencing them to up to 12 years hard labour. While homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt, athorities are using sexual deviance, debauchery and insulting public morals as terms for the crackdown. Many claim this fresh attack on the LGBT community is lead by President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi who wishes for his country to be more Islamic.
For all of my LGBT friends here on tumblr, please be extremely careful as this situation develops. Remember to clear your search history, use private browsing if possible, and be extremely cautious with who you talk to online.
