I found Melissa Etheridge's comments bothersome, too. I don't think anyone should try to qualify what her words were......they were what they were. I didn't understand them, though. I remember my ex- telling me, once, in a strangely smart and insightful moment....."don't try to say what you think I said......respond to what I did say."
If breast cancer can do the same thing as ovarian cancer, one can still develop ovarian cancer even after they've had surgery to remove the dangerous organs. Somehow, it just doesn't seem fair, but the possibility exists. I wish women would just support other women who do what they think they need to do.
I'm afraid I think a little less of Melissa Etheridge today.
