Why are they donating to breast cancer when the vast majority of their customers are men. Donate to prostate cancer... It's just as deadly and woefully underfunded in comparison .
On the matter of testicular cancer, we posted this just last Friday in fact:Psym0n said:
Ta ta is a slang word for rich white people here in the Netherlands. Try reading it in that contextOG_Zorvan said:
I thought calling breast "ta ta's" was declared sexist and mysogynistic?
On the subject though, I don't have anything against breast cancer research or donations. But every year a lot of guys die of the ball cancer. Friend of mine got diagnosed 2 weeks ago, they told him it's the most common cancer for guys. Really weird that there is almost no event, information or checkups that get promoted. While the female side gets massive attention every year.
Send tips our way and we'll post them.
That said, everyone needs to keep politics out of this thread. The discussion of the state of male / female relationships is not for this thread or site. There are literally thousands of other places to discuss political hot topics.
Cool, didn't realize that story was about a testicular cancer charity.
@thunderC good information, but testicular cancer is just as curable, as is cervical cancer, if caught early enough. Still feel there's just a societal stigma in talking about the testicles or cervix (and associated vagina and penis) publicly as opposed to breasts. Both sexes have breasts, too, which may contribute to the ease of public discussion.
Again, not saying any of this is right or wrong or justified or not, etc.. It's merely an observation and possible reasoning that seems logical to me, even if the end result is less than desirable (less exposure given to those two types of cancers, relatively). Any attention given to any devastating disease in a search for a cure is a good thing imo.
