  •  Ah, but will they sue? (2+ / 0-)

    Seeing that Komen has a penchant for suing anyone using "cure" or the pink ribbon, I expect to see a lawsuit against the gun company any moment now, especially since Komen wasn't aware their logo was being used.

    Uh huh.

    •  But the Pink gun folks shot Komen down .. (0+ / 0-)

      and now the proceeds of their special Pink gun sales go Directly to the American Cancer Society.  

      This is a win for progressive outrage vs Komen, a win for breast cancer research and a huge win for women with breast cancer, many of whom might like to brandish a pink handgun in front of the SGK board and PR flaks.  

      So screw Komen's lawyers, Komen did know, the they just call them 'teammates' not 'corporate partners' and by any name they are abandoning the Komen ship.  

      The Komen 'pink-ribbon' brand is now a social disease and 'teammates or partners' who don't want to spread this are shucking the ribbon, quitting the Komen team and continuing to sell pink stuff but now send proceeds directly to the right people.  

      We all win and the Komen-i's and the political minions who provoked the outrage just keep loking like bigger and bigger asshats.
