No Pink Here
I will place no pink ribbon, pink logo, ping slogan, or any other pink on this website, even if October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I will do no such thing until there is an equal media blitz for Lung Cancer Awareness Month.
According to the American Cancer Society’s own statistics, breast cancer is expected to claim over 40,000 women’s lives in 2006, while lung cancer will take over 72,000 women’s lives, making it almost twice as deadly as breast cancer for women.
I’ll be blunt: If the Politically Correct crowd were truly worried about women’s health, they would have a much stronger sense of proportion. As it is, their fixation on women’s breasts undercuts their stated mission.
