With a strong family history of breast cancer (my mother and both grandmothers survived), I get SO INSULTED by people waving around pink swag or putting some freaking useless status update on FB or whatever to "show their support". And as someone who will probably go through it at some point myself, screw you, I hate pink. First person who buys me some pink ribbon shit gets my fabulous cancer wig shoved down their throat.

We are not entitled to our opinions; we are entitled to our informed opinions. Without research, without background, without understanding, itís nothing. Itís just bibble-babble. Itís like a fart in a wind tunnel, folks." --Harlan Ellison
