John, I have to say that this is one of your best responses. The response was very well laid out - it flowed beautifully!
I agree with your freedom and "zero sum" comment.
I agree with your comment about women with breast cancer and it being traumatic because some they feel like they are losing sexuality. That is the most definitive "proof" (not opinion) that there are many women (not just men!) feel that their breast are sexual. Note that John and I didn't say "all" women - that is one of the problems with many of the regulars here in that they tend to make blanket statements.
Which leads to me my last point - I want to thank John for pointing out that nothing has been "established" (here or anywhere) as far as the best path to breast freedom - it may be one's opinion that desexualing breasts is the better route, but that does not make it a fact. After reading John's response, and the info that he provided (especially the breast cancer example), I am more willing than ever to believe that desexualing for the sake breast freedom just don't go hand in hand.
