I remember some years ago when Angelina Jolie had a preventative double mastectomy because she is genetically predisposed for cancer. She was described as hysterical and irrational (and the women who se inspired to get tested as foolish) for mutilating her body because she was in high risk of a serious illness.

Yet most people seem fine with young girls having their breasts cut off because they want to be treated like human beings...

Maybe we traveled in different circles but everyone I heard speak on it said Jolie was making a reasonable decision.
