Pink ribbons…they’re everywhere: tee-shirts, hats, yogurt cups, KFC buckets, car ads, NFL stadiums…the list goes on and on. They make us feel good, as if we’re all engaged in a successful battle against breast cancer.
But who is really benefiting? After all, more and more women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. Maybe it’s the companies who wrap their products in pink to gain our admiration (and money)… and wouldn’t it be something if some of the very companies that profit from their pink marketing campaigns have actually contributed to the breast cancer epidemic by selling known carcinogens?
Pink Ribbons, Inc. goes inside the story to reveal those who have co-opted what marketing experts have labeled a “dream cause.”
:D Test it out for a week or so and see what you think!
If you wouldn’t cut off part of a human’s ears to make it look nice, don’t do it to an animal.
If you wouldn’t snatch a human baby away from it’s mother’s breast and take the milk for yourself, don’t do it to an animal.
If you wouldn’t slap a saddle on a human and ride it around the woods, don’t do it to an animal.
If you wouldn’t buy a human from a store or breeder, don’t do it to an animal.
If you wouldn’t remove a human’s nails for your convenience, don’t do it to an animal.
If you wouldn’t cage an human for it’s entire life, only to slit it’s throat and then eat it, don’t do it to an animal.
If you wouldn’t wear pieces and parts of a human, don’t wear pieces and parts of an animal.
And so on and so forth.
Obviously there are exceptions. Spaying and neutering is important because of pet overpopulation (and honestly I would spay and neuter some people >.>), and I have to cage my ferret while I’m gone for his own safety (if he were to get out of the room my dogs could seriously injure/kill him). But overall I think it’s a good rule.
You can’t honestly compare this:
You can’t seriously say that this:
Is as bad as this:
If you think that this:
Is the same as this:
You are fucking insane.
