Great Page. Thank you.

I can't even begin to describe how much I loathe the "Buy Pink Stuff!" campaign being waged by Komen just in order to guilt stupid people into thinking that Buying Pink Stuff will cure cancer.

Not only will Buying Pink Stuff not cure cancer, but a lot of the companies that are making and selling the Pink Stuff, actually cause cancer.

re: #2 Alouette

Until all this latest Komen idiocy, I was one of those people who bought pink stuff and thought I was helping the cause. One of my aunts died of breast cancer, so I felt like it was a worthy thing to do. Some of my cousins do the Walk/Race for the Cure and they're heavily involved with Komen, so it felt right to do it, you know?

All the digging into Komen I've been doing these last couple of days makes me feel like a dupe. I fell for it, hook, line and sinker. Now I'm re-thinking all my charity contributions.

My mother is a breast cancer survivor and I have always felt that the Pink Stuff marketing blitz was total bullshit. All that crap looks totally lame, and it does nothing to Cure Cancer. Buying Pink Shit does not mean "Hey, I Am Totally Curing Cancer!" any more than not buying Pink Shit means "I Want Everyone To Die Of Cancer!"

Add me to the list. My 92 year-old Mom and my sister are both survivors of breast cancer and this pisses me off big time! I will no longer support this bogus organization. I wish I lived in a state where I had representation.

all organizations like this perpetuate their own power eventually, at the expense of their causes, because humans are greedy and want more power and more stuff
