(ABC)   Melissa Etheridge doesn't think Angelina Jolie is brave because "It's my belief that cancer comes from inside you." Unlike most scientists, who think cancer comes from demons hiding under your bed   (abcnews.go.com) divider line 115

"...and further, I'm an obnoxious bulldog who hasn't been relevant in a decade, so let me glom on to the story of one of my betters."

There's been a lot of terrible comments about Angelina Jolie's decision, but those have been mostly in the misogynist 'women's bodies are public property' sort of vein. I haven't really seen that much of this sort of 'I don't understand science' stuff though. There has been a lot of failure to understand exactly how high risk she was and underplaying that, but I'm not sure if that's just poor reading comprehension or poor math skills.

Either way, it's all bullshiat.

Let's hope Jenny McCarthy and Melissa Etheridge remake "Thelma and Louise," and the producers forget to use special effects to shot the final scene.

She sounds jealous.  Or disappointed Angie didn't treat her to a love affair.

Is she the one that used David Crosby to get pregnant?

But Etheridge's  beliefs about cancer are certainly as valid as any oncologist's or medical researcher's, right?

Sensei Can You See: Is she the one that used David Crosby to get pregnant?


Yep. I believe she's up to her eyeballs in alimony and child support for her baby mamas, too.

Listening to her on Joe Rogan's podcast a couple months ago, she's not the sanest woman in the world.

I want to know which FARKer thinks he bought them on eBay.

It's odd how when ever people profess to believe something or having been offended by something, they expect the rest of us to give a shiat.

Truth, but she did put on a good show back when I saw her. Did a great cover of You Shook Me All Night Long.

"Brave" or "fearful"?

Bullsh*t question.  Next.

Actually, Breast Cancer is caused by an imbalance of bodily humors, perhaps caused by a toad or a small dwarf living in her stomach.

Whether you think she's a fool or not, i guarantee her thinking is at least as equally as effective as chemo or whatever else cancer docs try to shill out.

So...when did we go to Med school Doctor Etheridge?  And when did we get to consult with the patient and see her medical records?

Oh....you didn't?

Okay then.  Please STFU.

If Michael Douglas said that a virus that can cause squamous cell carcinoma of the throat can be spread by oral sex, then he was correct. However, oral sex by itself does not "cause cancer."

Call it preventative maintenance or pre-loss mitigation.  It does take some guts to lop off body parts because of something that statistically may happen.

Women get breast cancer because they're not funny?

Oh, wait - different "humors", I see.  Never mind and carry on.

She's not wrong.

Cancer does come from inside you.

From the genes inside you, which may or may not be triggered by external environmental factors.

The Caladrius Bird is placed beside a patient. If the bird looks at a patient's face, she should have her breasts removed; but if it looks at her feet, she should not.

The women on my mom's side of the family have BRAC running through them like kudzu in the South. We've had three double mastectomies in the last 10 years, not to mention my mom dying at 29 from breast cancer. Miss Etheridge can go fark herself.

Well duh. If everyone could suck themselves we wouldn't have any issues.

came her to say that!

interview was pretty cool but yeah, she believes you manifest what happens to you.  cancer?  you musta been thinking about cancer.  raped?  probably did something to bring it on yourself.  seriously.  she has this kind of philosophy.  "i got cancer because probably i was doing stuff i shouldn't have been doing, i brought it on myself."

she is out there.

Or, SHE'S NOT A DOCTOR, FOLKS.  YOU'VE BEEN WARNED.

Say whatever the f*ck you want, Ms. Etheridge.

I don't know.  I kind of like her music so she must be right about everything she thinks.  Or almost right.

Cancer does come from in side of you unless it is melanoma.

Well, I had melanoma inside my eye, and the doctors have no idea how that happens, either.

Sometimes it makes me sad, though... Angie's rack being gone. I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up DOES rejoice. But still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss her teats.
