facebook breast cancer awareness game.

Postby punkykittysexpecting » Mon Sep 05, 2011 3:01 pm

how many of you are upset about the breast cancer awareness thing they have going on fb??? where they put how many weeks they are according to their birth month and what they are craving according to what the day they were born on.
i understand that its there to bring awareness. yes. good... but couldnt they pick something else to show it? some women that are infertile arent too happy about it, and i find it rude and disrespectfull to fake a pregnancy. esp for somewho is infertile due to cancer. plus breast cancer doesnt just happen to women. it effects men and child too. so they are singling out others too.
just my opinion... wondering what yours is???

I don't see how this "game" does anything to raise awareness for breast cancer. I think it's pretty stupid and getting annoying.

i agree. it has NOTHING to do with breast cancer at all.

Agreed. I actually posted something on my status (that I copied from someone else) that pretty much says just that. Silliness.

I found that appalling, especially since October is also pregnancy and infant loss awareness month (day is Oct 15). I'm glad to see all those status are pretty much gone now. Wouldn't it be better to encourage women to use their time to do a self-breast exam instead of wasting time on a stupid game inplying that you are pregnant? Not something to joke about, especially when some of us have struggled with infertility and multiple loss.
