9 Striking Portraits That Will Change The Way You View Breast Cancer Survivors
This is the message behind The Scar Project, a photography series dedicated to young breast cancer survivors. Shot by fashion photographer David Jay, the large-scale portrait endeavor features the faces and bodies of over 100 women who have battled and bested early-onset cancer.
As the project’s name suggests, the photographs showcase the many scars of women age 18 to 35 who have undergone mastectomies as a result of a breast cancer diagnosis. The series shines a spotlight on the fact that over 10,000 women under the age of 40 will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year alone — a stark reality that younger woman often overlook.
Very thankful for science, medicine doctors and education.

All day long, I have to be rational. Deal with “normal” people, make rational, understandable decisions. And at the end of the day, I come to the internet, to shatter my mind into fantastically tiny pieces that no one else can find except me and Steve Jobs.
OK. So Children’s Place were selling Guardians of the Galaxy t-shirts for boys… and left Gamora out of the ugly-ass t-shirt design because she’s a female character and this “shirt in particular is a boy’s shirt.”
THIS. THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS, PEOPLE.
We all know that’s bull because the girls’ shirts are always covered in male characters. Apparently having a female character on merchandise would accidentally give young girls and women the false impression that they matter too. And we can’t have that, now, can we?
Working I’m retail has taught me that parents will refuse to buy anything even vaguely non-masculine - let alone feminine - for their AMAB children.
I had a man that refused to buy his son a Super Mario shirt because it had Princess Peach on it, despite her being the only woman on the shirt. The shirt also had dry bones, toad, Bowser and the Koopa Troop on there, so I wonder if we worried his son would turn into a turtle or mushroom from wearing too. I heard a woman call her son a faggot IN A CROWDED STORE for wanting skinny jeans, because she perceived skinny jeans as feminine and queer.
That’s just two examples of many. Companies do stuff like this because our society is like this. They will only sell what we will buy.
