NaBloPoMo: October 2010, Day 8

Alternate Title: It's Friday somewhere, right?

To promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month, someone - my best guess is someone who specialises in handbag B&E - has started a thing going on Facebook, whereby women are encouraged to change their status to [Whoever] likes it [wherever]. "It" refers to her handbag, but shh, don't tell anyone, cos it sounds like she likes having sex on the coffee table, on the end of the bed, wherever it's convenient, etc.

It's hilarious! Joke's on you, fellas! And what's more, it's raising awareness. Of ... women's favourite sexual positions? NO! Of Breast Cancer, obviously.

How about this, Facebook? The only way it's actually raising awareness of breast cancer is if it somehow (I'm thinking a hashtag, but I may be getting my social media confused) contains a reference to breasts, cancer, or awareness.

Otherwise, it's just an annoying (and very, very occasionally very, very briefly amusing) way to clutter up my Facebook news feed. Which should be kept for actually important things. Clearly.

  1. Well when you think about it, leaving out any mention of breasts in the posts, it makes guys think of exactly that: very good strategy there, although i don't see where cancer or awareness come into it..
