    the one with a little circle for a "head" that kind of looks like a running figure. All other pink ribbons are generic, and thus can be used by anyone.

    The pink ribbon has become such a racket. Some companies put pink-ribbon logos on their products or make pink-ribbon products without even supporting any organization out there.
