This latest article (click on the link above to read it, and PLEASE read it) in Salon.com voices many of my own frustrated and angry thoughts, which I've had ever since the beginnings of this PINK nonsense got so stupidly out of hand. It's just another "dumbing down" of a complex, COMPLEX subject that deserves and demands and REQUIRES so much more than these idiotic pink getups and pink ribbons and pink consumer crap. Once again, it's the mass "herd" reality. Everybody jumps on the big pink bandwagon, holds up signs, runs in a pack, and thinks (more like hopes or believes than thinks) that this money that gets raised is actually going to make a significant difference. Well, it isn't. What will make a difference is women REALLY learning about why treatments for breast cancer are so slow to change, why they aren't working for the most part, why the research and treatment paradigms must be radically altered.
