Carnivore on ‘Breast Cancer Awareness Month’

12 Oct

Chesterpoe has a great rant up on the subject of the month formerly known as October, but I especially liked Carnivore’s response:

There’s another angle to this. It’s the result of feminization of society and culture. Awareness days are a very feminine way of dealing with a problem. Men do – they work to fix problems. Women whine and complain, hoping to get the attention of men who will then fix their complaint.

In our highly technical society, most men are also smart enough to know that if they don’t have the expertise to fix a problem, they just better get the hell out of the way and let those guys who know what they are doing do it. That doesn’t mean men do not sympathize with a woman who has breast cancer (or a man, for that matter, since men can also get breast cancer – although most don’t know that – but, of course, only a man can get prostate cancer).

But women think they are doing something to solve a problem by wearing a pink ribbon or wearing a t-shirt with some slogan on it. It gives them satisfaction and allows them to compartmentalize problems and put them out of the way. A man will work on a solution day and night until the problem is solved. A woman will wear her pink ribbon, dust herself off, and move on to the next task. She’s done her part. Next!

Of course that doesn’t even address the racket all these causes have become – the cancer industry and the rest. They really don’t want to find some easy, simple, cheap cure for cancer.

Spot on.

Interestingly, even some feminists are beginning to question ‘Pinktober’; the trailer below is for a documentary I saw this past spring at a Canadian film festival; it was well done, I have to say.

    WOW! My fake name is up in lights!

    Fixed that for ya.

    BTW, Laura Wood has been emphasizing the connection between abortion/contraception and breast cancer, which is scientificallywell established. That means it’s doubleplusTrue, or superTrue.

    I tell people, “whenever I’m around pink I can feel my strength draining out of me.” Hey, women do sap your strength!

    @ TCO: Feminists and their media lapdogs have tried to discredit such scientific studies, since they don’t want people to be influenced by them in their decision-making processes, of course… (Funny how they claim to be ‘pro-choice’, but don’t want women to hear about potential health risks as they contemplate killing their offspring… IOW, they want women to make uninformed choices only.)

    @ TCO: In more ways than one, they certainly can and often do…

    It isn’t just big food and other corporations that jump on the Breast Cancer bandwagon, either; even small local pizzerias want a slice of the action:

    I’m not a sports fan myself, but if I was, I’d be as ticked off as this guy is:

    HA! That’s not a fake name – that’s my name in this electronic world. If you mean my given name and surname, that’s reserved for the physical world where I’m a liberal, feminist, coexist, gay activist Marxist!

    I decided to do that rant after hearing my mother and sister complaining, per usual. Some women are professional complainers and it truly irks me. We all have problems but only they (women) can truly have problems and only they (women) feel the need to never stop whining about it.

    Ah. Alas, all too true…
