So I was on the web recently and came across the picture you see above. I definitely was confused as to whether this was right or wrong and as you can tell for good reason. Ok maybe not right away but let me explain why.
On one hand, you have a pretty much naked set of breast-a-sis with the pink ribbon pasties which seems completely unethical and degrading to women. On the other hand, it did do the job of reminding me that 1) it is currently Breast Cancer Awareness Month right now and 2) get me to talk about Breast Cancer Awareness in one way or another. Hmmm…a paradigm indeed!
So, with that I pose the question: Is this picture going too far or is it ok since it does seem to serve the purpose of making people “aware”?
P.S. Breast cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in women (#2 behind skin cancer) and African American women are more likely to die from breast cancer than their white counterparts. So ladies get those mammograms so you can be around as long as you’re supposed to be please!
