    True. I see just as many men at race for the cure as I do women.

    I'm with you on this OP, why do they only give a fuck about it if it's breast related? That's wrong and they should not be supported unless they are there to help with all forms.

    Like girls can squize their boobs pretty roughly with no pain, try doing that with your balls :P.
    It's not nearly as bad but I understand a mammogram is certainly an unpleasant experience.

    I'm offended by the fact that you're offended that he's offended that we're offended that they're offender.

    Part of the reason there is a month for breast cancer is to promote the screening. Yes it has a lower mortality because it is easier to catch in the early stages than say pancreatic cancer. Same with prostate cancer, it's easy to detect if you have your yearly physical for guys.

    Second... the person who said its lower so shouldn't we focus on some of the higher mortality cancers.... dont you think there is a reason its lower. People promote the heck out of it, raise awareness, so in turn it raises screenings, and finally catching it early to treat before its terminal.

    And to the OP, who really cares you're tired of seeing pink. I dont think they really care if they bother you or not. Find something else to complain about. If all the pink causes one person to get an exam and saves their life, its worth it.

    Movember (the month formerly known as November) is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for Mens Health
    Basicly, all us guys at work grow big or weird moustache's and look like total d^cks for a month. It's great =)



    The one slogan I do hate on this whole Mens Health vrs Womens Health issue is the bumper stickers that say "Stop Violence against Women!". Beat up a man instead? Or maybe, shorten it to "Stop Violence" or even "Stop Violence against humans and beat a puppy". Well - maybe not, but you get my point.

    If you want to promote AWARENESS that's FINE. That does help screenings.

    These campaigns really don't just promote awareness. They donate to breast cancer research which is also fine.

    Have you seen how much money breast cancer research hauls in? A FRACTION of that money should be lucky enough to find its way to more worthy causes.

    Look at this list

    10 charity fundraisers for breast cancer.

    Any other disease on the list is lucky to have ONE fundraiser.

    Don't you think breast cancer gets a BIT too much attention compared to the myriad of other, extremely serious diseases?

    That's just another can of worms, but I will say: if you attack someone on the street, there's likely to be some sort of consequence. Domestic violence, against both women and male/female children, often goes unreported. *That's* what those sorts of campaigns are more focused towards.

    That and women are far more often the victims of things like domestic abuse.

    Come now, Wells. You know full well that men are the victims of violence in almost ALL cases. Domestic violence is just one facet of that whole spectrum.

    You're doing the same thing that the kid in the OP is doing about cancer. You can care about issues like domestic abuse even if its not the biggest issue.

    The guy's right, it's ridiculous, the organisations like Pink Ribbon don't do anything except raising awareness, they don't donate money whatsoever, because they have to pay the small Pink Ribbons and spokespeople in commercialse, besides that there is a 'Breast Cancer Fund', a 'Prostate Cancer Fund', a 'Lung Cancer Fund' and even more funds for all the types of cancer out there and with managers earning multi-million salaries every year, why don't we make one big 'Cancer Fund' and one Cancer Awareness month and stop this idiotic farce that has been going on for years now.
    Don't expect others to be happy with you if you aren't happy with yourself.

    Statistics in 1975 say there were approx. 36 deaths per 100,000 cases.
    Statistics recently say there are approx. 23 deaths per 100,000 cases.

    37 years and double-digit billions of dollars spent on breast cancer, and the death rate went from incredibly low to still incredibly low. Yet there are still women out there marching right now and demanding a "cure" to be found for them, and sticking their little noses up at anyone not sporting their pink ribbons. It's the biggest farce in the history of medical science.

    It's gotten to the point now that breast cancer awareness is not so much about curing cancer as it is about being politically correct and keeping a good public face.

    It's a bandwagon thing. People can lob a few quid at it, cluck their tongues, see the pink shirts and feel good about themselves.

    Look I understand that prostate cancer and other cancers need awareness, but to be offended by breast cancer campaigns is a bit over the top.

    If a video game developer removed tumors from players, they'd whine about nerfing their loss in weight and access to radiation powers. -Cracked.com

    It isn't discriminatory at all. There are foundations dedicated to prostate cancer as well.

    If you think they deserve more attention, research them and generate P.R. for them like the Susan Komen people did for breast cancer.

    Offended by raising awareness about a cancer? Really? Get over it. It's the fact that it CAN be cured if you catch it early enough, so it's there to encourage people to get themselves checked regularly so they don't die.

    I understand that. But surely you understand how trying to attack "violence against women" does for violence what cutting PBS does for fighting the federal deficit.
