Ten years later, I still #hate #pinktober because there is nothing pink or fluffy about breast cancer. And I don’t like all of the companies which profit from this month because very little of their pink profits goes to charity.
#PinkPower is pure bullsheit. If you want to wear pink because you like the color, wear pink. But don’t wear it for Pinktober.
If you’ve ever had breast cancer, we live with this every day even if we have been cancer clean for years. Pinking it up doesn’t make it better, it just sort of makes it like a cartoon and I find that offensive still 10 years later.
I am all for positivity when dealing with this disease because it’s important, but making everything various shades of Pepto-Bismol pink for a month is not helpful.
