First Disclaimer: please don't think I'm whining about anyone I know who did it and thought it was fun; it's more about the general concept, I didn't start defriending or hiding people, I just hit the scroll button.

I know a lot of people think it's harmless fun, and you know, great. I can just ignore those status updates and delete the 50 messages I got telling me to do it because it's so fun!, but it's so annoying that it's being used to raise "awareness."

Oh hey, let's sexualize cancer! It's *~scandalous~* to associate it with sex! It's all about the boobs and not about a disease that's killing women! I'm just a pair of tits, so we'd better make sure we save those!

I feel so aware about breast cancer now. I had no idea it existed before people started telling me where they liked it.

/rant

Second Disclaimer: my mom and one of my aunts are breast cancer survivors, so I'm not a total cold hard bitch

I was reading about it yesterday, and it sounds like it initially started as just a goofy meme, but then someone split it off from the original group/intent and decided to associate it with breast cancer.

Guess what - people are aware of breast cancer already. Go make a donation to a program that helps women get free mammograms or something.

Yeah, that's one of the things I don't like about Facebook - someone sends a message to a group of people, you can only "reply to all," and you're stuck with all the replies.

Well you can reply to an individual person if you wanted to (there's a reply link by each persons name) but the point is people still keep replying all and then you're stuck with 5 million messages.

Oh, I didn't know that! Thanks.

I usually don't even reply because I know it'll go to everyone - if I have something to say to just one person, I'll send them a new message or write on their wall directly.

About the "I like it...." thing, a friend of mine who has had cancer in her family sent the email, so I did it. It was a few minutes of harmless fun. She is painfully aware of cancer, as am I. I actually have donated to breast cancer research this month, so it isn't like I was doing this instead of something else!

Just be anti-social -- like me. Works like a charm!
