Pink Washing …

I watched Pink Ribbons last night. Fantastic documentary… I highly recommend everyone  watch it. It made me feel furious, outraged and emboldened.

I know this blog has suddenly become all boobs all the time but get used to it. It’s a few years ago it was all about the Vagina Monologues so I imagine the Anus is next.  🙂

  1. Everyone should seriously watch this documentary. A lot of people have no clue what they heck they REALLY are supporting when they buy into the whole pink ribbon culture.

    I am glad you watched this so early into your ‘journey’. I first saw it about 7 months after diagnosis. It hit home and finally summed up how I had been feeling about the pinked out mayhem. I, myself, have gone on a few rants about it on my own blog. It’s not that I am anti-pink ribbon… It’s what has happened to it and what it’s been turned into that drives me crazy.

    Sarah, in light of all this crap you’re dealing with. Your post cracked me up!! lol I think I will watch that documentary. Our 911 center is a huge supporter of the Susan G Koman Avon Walk in SF. They have a team called “911 Angels” that is ranked the 3rd biggest fundraiser for the SF Walk.

    Keep fighting!!

      Love u Dede!! Watch the movie. It’s shocking…

      I’d focus all that $$ you guys can raise and donate it to something more local/grassroots. Then you know the $$ is being used to actually help woman and not to make the statue of liberty light up pink which does nothing.

    Hi Sarah, I was in the Root Cellar today and noticed that they are stocked up on the Soursop fruit (ie. nature’s chemo). I thought of you when I saw it so thought I’d pass it along. xox

    And Barbara Ehrenreich’s brilliant essay one her breast cancer experience.

    And don’t be afraid to find another surgeon. That’s just one man’s opinion.

      I was just going to suggest reading that Barbara Ehrenreich essay- it is brilliant.

      I will check out this movie- the Pink Ribbon thing has always, always, irritated me.
