Escaping October

Thankfully, I’ll be spending most of Pinktober in Armenia, far far away from ribbons and Facebook campaigns and ‘Save the Tatas’ and similar slogans.

Think for a minute how incredibly insulting and dehumanizing those slogans are to those who are facing a mastectomy, or those who have lived through one. Think how dehumanizing they are to all women.

Think, dammit.

If you want to do something to help breast cancer research, this long term study is open to ALL women. Regardless of where you live, or what your breast cancer status is.

Free, user friendly, online, easy, and potentially incredibly useful. This I would appreciate. Take the survey, share it on social media – the more women participate, the more accurate the results are likely to be.

Me, I already did it, and I’m out of here for the next three weeks. Don’t burn the house down while I’m gone.
