Think about it...

Okay, this whole "put the color of your bra for breast cancer awareness" thing sparked a pretty huge fight in me. Let's think about this one, folks. Put the color of your bra in your status and only that to support breast cancer awareness.

1. Awarness = people need to know; how are people supposed to relate a random color with breast cancer?? Aside from asking, how are people going to figure that one out?? Pointless.
2. How does that help breast cancer? Awareness means people need to know facts about it and how to prevent it, detect it, etc. Maybe if someone was donating money to the Susan G. Komen fund for the cure for every status that was a color, but even then, it's impossible to track, so again- Pointless.
3. It's SICK how careless some people seem to be about it right now. It's like it's the "cool" thing to do and people are only supporting breast cancer because OTHER people are doing it. So supporting breast cancer is a fad now. A trend. I think I'd rather have fewer people supporting awareness and actually GIVE A CRAP about it, rather than everyone to hop on the band wagon about it.

Sick, people. Just sick.
