Angelina Jolie Appreication!


Warning: Annoyed Blog Post

It's just been announced that after finding out she is at a high risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer, actress Angelina Jolie has undergone a double mastectomy as preventative treatment. On the whole this should be received in a positive light; Jolie should be seen as brave and somewhat an influence to other women in the same situation yet some people seem to be criticising the brave woman. What on earth has happened to the world we live in; since when is it acceptable for one person to criticise another for making changes to their body to protect themselves from developing cancer. I am almost sure that if it was a member of their family in the same situation as Jolie they would be all for the idea but because she is an attractive celebrity her body is open to objectification that appears to make people think they have some sort of right over her. Needless to say I am sufficiently infuriated by the disapproval of the ignorant members of our society; Jolie's mastectomy should be an act that empowers other women in the same situation NOT something to complain about.
