Spinster Aunt on Komen Khaos

Man do I love Spinster Aunt’s screeds on the excellent I Blame the Patriarchy. Today’s post “Komen Sucks, Pt. 47” is no exception.

Listen everyone, Komen doesn’t prevent cancer, and Komen doesn’t pay for breast cancer treatment. It “raises awareness” through “early detection” and funds “research” focused on pharmaceutical cures for cancers that many of Komen’s corporate sponsors might likely have a hand in causing in the first place.”

Return your pink Kitchen-Aids! Un-dye the City Hall foundation! Rouge pink nipples until they are as red as the necks and political beliefs of Komen’s CEO Nancy BrinkerKaren Handel and Jane Abraham!

Oh, boy, have I missed Twisty.

Her conclusion is killer:

“Komen is the most visible brand in the whole cancer industrial complex. It disguises itself as some big altruistic community effort for women’s health, but it’s really just another conservative, honky organization with a misogynist political agenda. A marketing juggernaut instrumental in raking in piles of cash for and cleansing the tarnished images of its evil corporate sponsors, Komen has successfully brainwashed millions to believe that the “problem” of women’s health can be solved by licking yogurt lids.”
