Listen, this is a delicate, fleshy subject, so if you are weak, please move on...
BTW, I AM a cancer survivor (2006).
I HATE PINK BREAST CANCER MONTH IN OCTOBER. I WANT HALLOWEEN BACK.
PICK ANOTHER MONTH FOR YOUR OVERBEARING, GUILT-INDUCING CORPORATE-DRIVEN PINK NIGHTMARE... Such a "sacred cow" no one dares say anything...
I'm sick of retail stores" asking me for money EVERYTIME I CHECK OUT! It just happens I'm picking "Breast Cancer Awareness Month" to FINALLY say something. I'm sick of watching "Gen-UXers" with their boob jobs parade around in anything pink to get MORE ATTENTION for themselves (not the cause). I'm sick of Corporations taking credit for MY giving by making it "easy to give at the check-stand." Honest to God, WHO COULD POSSIBLY NOT BE AWARE???
Breast cancer research would be a LOT farther ahead if you just taped your quarters to a piece of cardboard and mailed them to the Foundations themselves... Instead of running it through the Corporate T-Shirt-making machinery and salaries of THOUSANDS OF "NON-PROFIT" EMPLOYEES before it gets anywhere NEAR a research Center.
NOT that I would want anyone to lose a GOOD UNION T-SHIRT MAKING JOB HERE IN THE U.S.A.... are there any left?
Now, where are the freakin' pumkins around here? It's October, or Rocktober, if you will... I want my black and orange back.
