I’m already so over Pink Ribbon. This year over here they took a different approach which makes everything less pink, but fake news paper articles with Today Nine Women Died Of Breast Cancer doesn’t – to me – feel like it’s going to help.
And I feel uncomfortable wearing pink because I don’t want to be a ~supporter. I want money to go to any kind of cancer, not the heavily promoted one.

I guess I have thoughts on this.
