Tomorrow kicks off Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I have one request: This October, let’s not save second base.
I know, I know, you probably think this month is a good thing. If not for all of those T-shirts demanding every female-bodied person to feel their boobies, or the bracelets simply proclaiming “I love boobies,” people with breasts might forget that they even have them, or at the very least might start to think that their breasts are their own business. But the female body seems to be an object owned by the public, so we must always be reminded that boobs exist only for others’ enjoyment. [excerpt]
