Another Reason To Hate Pink

I'm going to be forced to go "crunchy" simply because it's hard to buy any products at the grocery store these days without those damned pink ribbons on them.

The program itself irks me before we even think about the cause. I don't want to spend more money on a product so the company can give to charity. I'd rather keep my money and give to my own causes.

I won't give to the Susan G. Komen Foundation because it gives to Planned Parenthood. Especially dumb since PP's prime product is abortion and abortion is a risk factor for the breast cancer SGK wants to cure.

But if I used to think the group was just misguided and ignorant, I now think it looks more and more like a racket. It spends your pink dollars not only on abortion, but on suing mom & pop fundraising operations for trademark infringement.
"It happened to my family," said Roxanne Donovan, whose sister runs Kites for a Cure, a family kite-flying event that raises money for lung cancer research. "They came after us ferociously with a big law firm. They said they own 'cure' in a name and we had to stop using it, even though we were raising money for an entirely different cause."
Donovan's sister, Mary Ann Tighe, said the Komen foundation sent her a letter asking her to stop using the phrase "for a cure" in their title and to never use the color pink in conjunction with their fundraising.
It's just not a nice company anymore, yet try to find a product without the pink!
