Is this new breast cancer meme totally stupid? Read More »

So, apparently, Jennifer Aniston didn’t love our idea for her to direct an all female version of “The Three Amigos” starring herself, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow. Looks like she wanted something more meaty and heartfelt for her directorial debut. She has signed on for “Project Five,” a Lifetime project that will meld together five short films about different breast cancer survivors. And Jennifer won’t be the only famous director—Demi Moore and Alicia Keys will also be stepping behind the camera for the cause. Keep reading »

Facebook Won’t Let Breast Cancer Survivor Post Pics Of Her Boobs

A British breast cancer survivor has had her Facebook page blocked after she posted photos of her reconstructed breasts after surgery. Melissa Tullett of Kent, 40, had a double mastectomy and posted pics of her new tatas for all to see, including nipples that had been tattooed on her new rack. But Facebook said Tullett broke the site’s terms of use regarding nudity and temporarily suspended her account until she removed the pics. Tullett told the BBC she was just trying to be inspirational. “It was to show other women that after such an ordeal you can come out of it with your dignity and your womanhood again, and that it’s not all frightening,” Tullett insisted. She told the local newspaper in Kent, “I felt bullied and picked on. It really upset me, I’m really impressed with the way my breasts look now. I think my breasts look fabulous. The photo is not offensive.”

Meh. I’m with Facebook on this one. Keep reading »

Christina Applegate’s Birth Experience Was Profound

“This part of my body [her chest] is very private to me … that’s a real private place. A place that I don’t have a good relationship with, let’s say. But at that moment of pulling her out, I just tore that [gown] off … There’s a room full of people that I don’t know. Nurses and doctors, and she and I just lay there. It was the best thing that’s every happened to me.”

– New mom, Christina Applegate, tells People that giving birth to her daughter Sadie had a profound effect on how she views her body.

Happy Pinktober, I Mean, October!

Pinktober — I mean, October — has been taken over as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a worthy cause that’s opportunistically hijacked to promote everything for 31 days straight. Why, just this morning I received a press release from HerCampus.com about essays that six women wrote about their bras sizes “in honor” of Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Sorry, what does an essay about your 36DD tatas have to do with “honoring” breast cancer again? I’m not the only one skeptical of consumer pink-washing during “Pinktober” … Keep reading »
