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

Irving Maimway: 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.



Hey, who's the Barber here?

Mrs.Sharpier: Is Melissa Etheridge a scientologist? ... Cause she's acting like one.


No, scientology keeps their celebrity members in the closet.

Not brave? For taking the irreversible step of having two amputations? People talk as if it's the easy way out. It's not.

It takes balls to have your breasts removed.

I'm still undecided on this one, I need to hear a few more celebrity opinions before making my mind.

If you have your boobs removed because you fear getting cancer in them, you're fearful.

French kissing your brother on the red carpet at the Oscars is brave (and sick).

Mugato: Sophie B. Hawkins is my favorite lesbian singer from the 90's. When asked.


My theory is that Melissa Etheridge and Holly Near are slowly merging into the same person.

Igor Jakovsky: LesserEvil: Igor Jakovsky: 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.

Yeesh, hope you are OK and can still see out of that eye. Ive never heard of that.


If it was a squamous cell tumor, it might've been because he was looking for love in all the wrong places.

This is why you don't consult a pop musician on medical matters. Certainly she is entitled to an opinion, but she is speaking about something outside her field of expertise, about a complex matter where her opinion has no value.

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.

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

TheOmni: 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.


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