thechristianotaku asked a question
Hi!…I love your blog! Anyway I am a ally not gay so I hope this is fine to ask. Growing up Christian personally, I feel a large failing as christians is we fail to teach our youth about sexuality. We don’t allow youth to explore it. Masturbation is condemed with the use of misinterpreted verses. We instead allow them to grow in fear of it. We grow up repressed and afraid of anything involving the word sex. I feel if churches could start embracing sexuality and sex ed allowing youth more than “no sex before marriage, girls don’t let boys pressure you, boys you’re just filled with dirty desires, don’t be gay,” maybe kids wouldn’t have to fear their sexuality (as much)"
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."
