Thanks to mastectomies, there are more people than pairs of nipples in the world. [I Have Cancer]

I'm sorry. I just started thinking about that, since my mastectomy is scheduled for May 18th. Sorry that pisses you off.

And only one me. I should clone myself

I still have to schedule my mastectomy, not for cancer but for other medical reasons. One of my friends told me that chests look way better without nipples, so if that's the case for you remember that someone you've upgraded! Best of luck!

If you have to have a mastectomy you can have nipples tattooed on.

[@1078962,AntisocialTroll] I also know that some people can do a nipple graft but I don't know the qualifications

[@871813,Carter3210] That me thinks is a surgeons job.
[@871813,Carter3210] Think I'll just keep the scar, maybe add a tattoo that says, "I drew the line here."

Ehhh, maybe not.

that's not true many species have more than one pair.
What sort of comment is that. There are people here who have had breadt cancer, lost loved ones to cancer and you are making an insensitive mockery of it
[@406205,InOtterWords] I've got cancer. Read my other posts here before you spout off.
[@1201381,ShadowfireTheSarcastic] I apologise that I jumped the gun. I am sorry you have cancer, I hope your surgery goes well.

Can I suggest you perhaps mark things like this as sensitive. I get that people use dark humour as a coping mechanism. For context, the BRCA2 gene runs in my family, my grandmother, 3 aunts and 2 cousins have had masectomies.

[@1201381,ShadowfireTheSarcastic] Still NOT funny!!
Hope it goes ok.
