Welcome to my world.....when I complained I was told (by the television station, mind you) that I should embrace a positive attitude and "the visual effect of pink was to highlight the need for more research." Oh.See for yourself:http://animoto.com/play/k2bXK87VQjBzEVS0JfseGg
Holy fuckballs! That's some condescending bullshit. Ugh, I'm sorry that happened to you. All the 'think positive' shit is crazy-making. There's so much sexism involved in it. Always be pretty and positive and pink. I'm glad you called them out on it. Despite the rude response, I bet you planted a seed in that person's mind. I'm sure you've already seen Pink Ribbons, Inc, but if not def check it out.
Well, at least it comes with a drip-catch cuff. Goodness knows breast cancer can be messy! ;-)
Haha! So true... Where are the pink ribbon themed JP drains?
Found your blog through the video. Don't want to be a lurker. I found a pink ribbon breast cancer garden spade at the store recently. I also found breast cancer mushrooms. And my eggs each have a pink ribbon stamped on them. Drives me crazy. I've made it into a game with my kids -- to see who can find the most random breast cancer item. Those kitchen gloves fit the game nicely.I probably sound like a hypocrite, since I actually went to the Komen Race in my town recently. Peer pressure, in a way, I guess.My bilateral mastectomy was nearly 14 months ago. A massive infection meant I had to have my implants removed just over 3 weeks after my exchange surgery. I'm currently rocking the concave, no boob look with absolutely zero plans to have any more surgery. I call them my "donut peaches" -- if you've ever seen the puckered, curvy seamed looking variety called donut peaches -- that's what I have.Anyway, I relate to so much on this blog, from the reading I've been doing. Hope you don't mind I've bookmarked it.
I love that you made it into a game with your kids! Have you seen pinknausea.com?
