The Breast Cancer Research Foundation Doesn’t Want Your Motorboating Money, Bros

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation Doesn't Want Your Motorboating Money, Bros
"Breast cancer research literally lost $7,000..."

You may recall the skeevy dudes of YouTube channel Simple Pickup who managed to persuade more than 100 women to be motorboated to raise funds for breast cancer research. Well, they ended up donating more than $2,000 burying their faces in tits, all of which was flat-out rejected by the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. In an email to the founders of Simple Pickup, the BCRF thanked the bros for their valiant efforts, but insisted on refunding their donation “out of respect for the sensitivities of the community we serve.” The bros of Simple Pickup think that the BCRF were totally out of line in this case and are outraged by the “small minority of haters” who found their sexual harassment for a cause offensive. Small minority? Heh. Let’s play our teeny tiny violin for them.

Here’s how we can help: the boys need suggestions for what to do with the money that breast cancer research lost. I’ll start! Donate it to a shelter for abused women. Your turn. [Gawker]

Kickass Woman Of The Day: Cancer Survivor & Ironman Competitor Michele Prieve Wilkinson

When life threw Michele Prieve Wilkinson a curveball with a breast cancer diagnosis, she chose positivity. A survivor in more ways than one, she just completed her second Ironman Wisconsin competition last month. Wilkinson, who is gracing the cover of Brava magazine this month, participated in her first Ironman just 10 months after finishing cancer treatment.

When Wilkinson found a lump in her breast, she expected it to be benign. When she instead received the call that she had cancer in September 2008, she was determined to fight it on her terms. She resolved to turn her diagnosis into a launchpad for positive changes in her life, and began racking up accomplishments she never dreamed possible. Her choice to find humor and hope in life’s darkest moments carried her through difficult treatments and even several marathons. Instead of making the anniversary of her diagnosis a grim reminder of tough times, she chose to dub it her “Canciversary” as a celebration. Keep reading »

Rebecca Romijn Introduces The Hand Bra For Breast Cancer Awareness

Rebecca Romijn introduces the Hand Bra for BCA
The Hand Bra!

Ah, the Hand Bra: I know it well. Granted, I am more familiar with the Rachel Krause Hand Bra than the Rebecca Romijn Hand Bra, but a Hand Bra is a Hand Bra and they all work just the same. Except Rebecca’s version helps to call attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, while mine functions for more selfish reasons, such as not losing an eye while running for the subway. [Gossip Cop]

pennsylvania court lifts i heart boobies ban

“Boobies” isn’t a bad word, especially when it’s being used to promote a breast cancer awareness campaign. A judge in Pennsylvania seems to think so, too, which is why he reversed a Pennsylvania school district’s decision to ban the “I (Heart) Boobies” bracelets. In a 9-5 decision, the court ruled that the “bracelets here are not plainly lewd and because they comment on a social issue, they may not be categorically banned.”

Was Angelina Jolie ‘Duped’ By Doctors Into Thinking She Needed A Mastectomy?

angelina jolie double mastectomy

Was Angelina Jolie duped into an unnecessary double mastectomy by greedy surgeons who just wanted to mutiliate her for no other reason than to cash in on the expensive procedure? Such is the theory going around naturalistic circles. There are plenty of people who sincerely believe that cancer — even if you are genetically predisposed to certain types of it – can readily be prevented by certain foods, vitamins, and a healthy lifestyle. If only it were so. Keep reading »

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

“I’m quite emotional about it, of course. She could have stayed absolutely private about it and I don’t think anyone would have been none the wiser with such good results. But it was really important to her to share the story and that others would understand it doesn’t have to be a scary thing. In fact, it can be an empowering thing, and something that makes you stronger and us stronger. … [It has been] an emotional and beautifully inspiring few months. And I’ll tell you, it’s such a wonderful relief to come through this and not have a spectre hanging over our heads. To know that that’s not going to be something that’s going to affect us. My most proudest thing is our family. This isn’t going to get that.”"
