The Skeevy Dudes Of Simple Pickup Motorboat For Money For Breast Cancer Awareness

The Skeevy Dudes Of Simple Pickup Motorboat For Money For Breast Cancer Awareness
Sexual Harassment For A Good Cause!

Let’s get one thing straight: I would not permit the bros behind YouTube channel Simple Pickup to motorboat me for any amount of money for any cause. That would be a resounding NO. In the name of breast cancer awareness, however, the guys managed to persuade over 100 women into allowing one of them to squeeze their breasts together, stick his face between them, and, well, motorboat ‘em.

Unlike the rest of the Simple Pickup “pranks,” which range from videos of them harassing strangers at gay-pride parades to tips and advice for “guys like you” to “get laid” (ew), this one is seemingly not only harmless, but well-intentioned: they’ll donate $20 for every woman who lets them get on in there. They made $2,080, but this clip is little more than yet another installment in the growing case of taking Breast Cancer Awareness Month and turning it into a sexualized sham that’s more about letting weird dudes grab your tits than cancer prevention, and there’s no glory in that. In fact, some of Simple Pickup’s tougher online critics call for the group to be called out by law enforcement for sexual (and otherwise) harassment. No way, man, they’re just trying to help “guys like you” to “get laid,” right?! It’s totally honorable! [The Daily Dot]

Today’s Lady News: Susan G. Komen Cancer Charity Halts Grants To Planned Parenthood

  • Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the charity synonymous with breast cancer research, has halted grants to Planned Parenthood — seemingly caving to pressure from anti-abortion activists who have the nationwide clinics under investigation. Susan G. Komen grants mainly were used for breast exams (and other breast health services) for women who otherwise could not afford them. But anti-abortion groups have targeted those charitable donations because some Planned Parenthood clinics also perform abortions. A CEO of a Planned Parenthood in Virginia, which received a 2010 grant from Susan G. Komen for the Cure, told the AP, “We’re kind of reeling … cancer doesn’t care if you’re pro-choice, anti-choice, progressive, conservative.” [Washington Post]

Ladies, It’s Our Turn: Introducing Defember, The Female Version Of Movember

Movember is over (thank GOD), so now, says Olay, it’s time for us ladies to put our facial hair to the test. In partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, they’ve introduced Defember, a pledge to defuzz your upper lip this month. If you take the pledge on Olay’s site, they’ll donate a dollar to the foundation. Okay, okay, we’re into it, but don’t expect us to start referring to our upper lip fuzz as our “misstaches” as Olay is advising. That’s just crazy talk.  [Olay Facebook]

Today in facepalms: a chain of Christian bookstore called LifeWay are pulling copies of the Here’s Hope Breast Cancer Bible from their shelves after it learned that one of the organizations benefiting from the sales is Planned Parenthood. The bible is produced by the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and $1 from each sale is donated to non-profit organizations that provide help breast cancer sufferers. Of course, Planned Parenthood is one of them. In fact, to assume that Planned Parenthood — the most well known non-profit sexual health clinics in the country — would not be among them was naive. Keep reading »

He also called her “charming” when sober but a “demon” if she had been drinking or doing drugs. [ONTD] Keep reading »

The administration said the cheerleading squad’s pink T-shirts reading “Feel for lumps, save your bumps” was an “objectionable slogan” and inappropriate for two upcoming football games. Now the shirts have been banned. Keep reading »

Facebook? Your Bra Color? Something About Breast Cancer Awareness? I’m Confused.

Let’s be honest: It’s Friday afternoon and you’ve probably spent most of the day goofing off on Facebook. So you’ve probably noticed your girlfriends posting colors as status updates, like “Pink!” or “Black and white polka dots!” OK, random … I, for one, had no idea what was going on until I opened a message from a friend:

Some fun is going on for breast cancer awareness … just write the color of your bra in your status. Just the color. Nothing else. Send this ONLY to girls. No men. It will be neat to see if this spreads the wings of cancer awareness. It’ll be fun to see how long it takes for the men to wonder why all the girls have a color in their status. Ha!

Hell’s bells, why do so many “awareness”-raising campaigns for breast cancer have to be so stupid? Keep reading »
