Seriously Komen?? Handguns For The Cure??

image from google

I am pretty speechless writing this post. This is pink washing at its absolute
lowest! I thought I had seen it all with pink tires, pink oil delivery trucks, and the latest perfume debacle I posted about below involving Komen. But alas Komen had hit an all time low with these pink handguns for the cure!

Seriously Komen, please, please tell me this is just a sad joke.

Sure, lets promote violence for the cure! Buy a pink handgun and raise money for breast cancer?


and read all about it.

It defies belief but then sometimes the truth is like that. I think Nancy Brinker has made some irresponsible choices and decisions in her sister's name. Shame on her.

Unfortunately they aren't that new. I think they have been around for a year or two. But definitely a poor choice by someone at Komen.

I share with you, and have always had, a deep abiding disgust for all this which you call pink washing. Even before hearing about the Breast Cancer Action network or reading/seeing any of the vids, I intuited that it was some commodified fetish garbage just meant to increase sales & divert attention from the chemical and environmental ills most likely involved in the epidemic. Thanks for giving a name to this I've always felt! Next time it comes up I'll have something to respond with

I am a real cynic I don't believe in any of these so called runs for cancer, pink for cancer, walks for cancer and on and on. Cancer has been around for so many years, if they really wanted to they would have found a cure by now. I think we are all pretty clear that cancer is caused by all the toxic garbage we are bombarded with. The chemical companies win on both ends. They make money on the chemicals that are causing cancer and then make money on the chemicals they produce for all the pharmaceuticals to treat it. In addition, cancer research is a billion dollar industry, if they admitted to having a cure they wouldn't be getting the billions of dollars they get for whatever they are using it for. We are being duped again. Just as a note of interest, I heard on the TV that there are 80,000 chemicals and only 200 of them have been tested!!
