Breast Cancer Awareness Month
brings us the wretched excess of pink everything (thank you feministing) and the massive profit that is being made trading on this illness. Before getting sucked in please read Barbara Ehrenreich's Welcome to Cancerland: A Mammogram Leads To A Culture of Pink Kitsch. If you are inclined to donate, please consider Breast Cancer Action instead of the usual suspects. And feel free to toss that plastic pink ribbon on your car.
