Cure Cancer Buy A Pair Of Jingle Jugs

You ever click a link and say to yourself what the fuck was I thinking? Well I found this horrendous website through Hoyden About Town.   Now that I have seen this ridiculous shit, I can't fall asleep until I blog it out of my system.

Cancer is a very serious disease, and I am tired of breast cancer being portrayed as a loss to men.  Saving women's lives should not be about preserving men's favourite toys.  I further cannot believe that I am once again saying that disembodied female body parts are unacceptable.  Really, seriously get a clue.

For a mere 19.99 you can own a pair of musical Jingle Jugs, while at the same time showing your support for breast cancer research.  Yeah, save the titties men need something to drool over.

If you are thinking that this offensive little product could not be any more repulsive just wait for what follows.....drumroll...this disgusting set of wall mountable boobies, moves rhythmically  to the song Titties & Beer. It even has a motion censor. 

How many times are we going to see a pink ribbon slapped on something that is completely offensive in an attempt to legitimize it?  It has come to the point that this sexist commercialization has so corrupted  the meaning of the pink ribbon, it is almost anti-feminist to wear one.  Save the boobies, buy something offensive and then pat yourself on the back for doing something to "support" women.  Great way to celebrate breast cancer awareness month and get a jump on your Christmas shopping isn't it?

The sick commercialization of breast cancer has got to come to end.  Women started this movement to raise awareness to a disease that the medical establishment was choosing to ignore, and now it is time that we reclaim it. We cannot make any positive progress while the hunt for the cure is represented by disgusting products like this.

My biggest pet peeve in the universe WRT breast cancer is that it seems to be the breasts that we are saving, and not the woman. All the marketing seems to either sexualize it somehow, or make it about the woman's parts, as opposed to her life we are supposed to be saving.

Breast cancer kills women. I know many survivors who are just as much women while cancer took their breasts, and they are thankful to have their lives (did that make sense? It's getting late here). It is lives we are trying to save, not "ta-tas" or any other disgusting nickname for breasts.

Absolutely! One could almost get the impression from these ads that breasts are some sort of endangered wildlife, existing completely separately to women. Do we really need to erase the woman from women's health for it to be a popular cause?

My question though is, how exactly can we undo this current commercialization and bring the focus back to what it should be about - saving women's lives? I too am amazed at all the frou-frou pink products, silly 'Save the Ta-Tas' slogans and so on.

I couldn't agree more. I actually just did a blog post about this. But these wall boobies are a whole 'nother thing. Sweet crap, that's offensive.

Why won't these companies realize that breast cancer isn't sexy, it isn't cute, it isn't just another excuse to market some crap. It's a REAL, SERIOUS disease that just happens to revolve around breasts. You don't see them doing the same thing for the many other types of cancer. So either it's about stopping cancer, or it's about discussing breasts!

Yeah! Let's put a stop to all these things that procure money to help the fight against breast cancer! That will teach all the misogynists that feminists are willing to let women die if it means that breasts don't get called ta-ta's any more!

Idiots.

Yes, Anonymous #6. And let's forget, as you seem so willing to do, that breast cancer isn't just about a woman's "ta-ta's". Breast cancer affects a woman's entire body, including her liver, ovaries, armpits, etc. By re-focusing fundraising and research efforts on the disease as it affects women's ENTIRE bodies, more money and awareness can be effectively raised.
By just sexualizing and commercializing the breasts and by extension the disease - the fight becomes less effective.
