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 .
The reason attention is brought to breast cancer the way it is and for a entire month in October is because it is one of if not the most treatable and curable if detected early. The whole push for Breast cancer awareness is for women to get their annual mammograms.MadFrenchie said:I think it's mostly to do with the fact that "ta tas" are, well, prettier than the genitalia you refer to.Psym0n said:
I thought calling breast "ta ta's" was declared sexist and mysogynistic?
Ta ta is a slang word for rich white people here in the Netherlands. Try reading it in that context
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.
Consider that cervical cancer, the truly female equivalent to testicular cancer, doesn't seem to get the same coverage. Don't get me wrong; I'm not knocking any coverage of any events to raise funds for any kinds of cancer, just saying that the reasoning for the media focus on breast cancer is not just a result of how common it is among women (and men), but also how we perceive the body parts associated with the cancer.
