Today, the New York Times published an absolutely beautiful op-ed by Angelina Jolie regarding her private, recent decision to have a preventative double mastectomy. Believe us, it’s worth a read. More

You’ve probably been hearing a bit about the Susan G. Komen Foundation this past week. Specifically, their politically motivated decision to stop funding cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood centers nationwide. There’s a lot of info to process, so I thought it might be helpful to pull together a summary of what’s happened so far. More

Well, we’ve been in business a year, and you forgot our birthday. That’s cool. That’s cool. We love Molly Ringwald, really counting on Jake Ryan showing up with a cake at this point. Here’s a small sampling of some of our favorite pieces from the past year: More
A while back, we wrote about the Facebook campaign that asked women to say where they “put their purse,” in an effort to make it sound like they were saying where they like to fuck, which was all a very inexplicable, roundabout attempt to “raise awareness” about breast cancer.
Well, today I got a message from a Facebook friend asking me to join the latest iteration of this game, and this time, it has to do with alcohol! And not just alcohol, but alcohol and your relationship status More
So apparently last week Sean Combs (too lazy to Google his current nickname) hosted an event to benefit breast cancer charities in Long Island. Some of the proceeds will go to 1 in 9: The Long Island Breast Cancer Coalition and the LIPSG Foundation. Combs is no stranger to raising money for breast cancer (or philanthropic work in general, for that matter), having at one point created a hot pink slip for charity through his clothing line, Sean John for Breast Cancer Care. So Combs hosted this event, presumably got some press for it, probably invited some famous friends, and certainly raised some money to benefit a great cause. And, uh, people are really angry at him. Why? Because he didn’t wear pink. More
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, but you probably already knew that. People wear pink to promote breast cancer awareness, but you probably already knew that too. Sometimes people want to show that they care by donating or raising money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Sometimes people want to show that they care by writing a cryptic message in their Facebook status. And sometimes people want to show that they care by simply wearing, eating, drinking, using pink. So if you fall in the last category, here are 10 pink things you can use for under $10. Not everything has a breast cancer ribbon on it, though, because sometimes, we just really like the color pink and it happens to be a month where being excited about the color pink is totally acceptable.

So, I got this super cute note to help me raise awareness about breast cancer using only my facebook status:
About a year ago, we played the game about what color bra you were wearing at the moment? The purpose was to increase awareness of October Breast Cancer Awareness month. It was a tremendous success and we had men wondering for days what was with the colors and it made it to the news.
This year’s game has to do with your handbag/purse, where we put our handbag the moment we get home for example “I like it on the couch”, “kitchen counter”, “the dresser” well you get the idea. Just put your answer as your status with nothing more than that and cut and paste this message and forward to all your FB female friends to their in-box. It doesn’t have to be suggestive. I’m going for the vague “I like it on the kitchen table”.
The bra game made it to the news. Let’s see how powerful we women really are!!! REMEMBER – DO NOT PUT YOUR ANSWER AS A REPLY TO THIS MESSAGE – PUT IT IN YOUR STATUS!!! PASS THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW
And oh my God, guys will think you’re talking about where you like to fuck! The kitchen table! Tee-hee, so hot! Let’s all go get cosmopolitans!
Break me a fucking give. More
Jenni “JWoww” Farley took off her earrings, slid her rings from her fingers and cracked her knuckles today — but not in preparation for beating the shit out of one of her housemates. This time, Woww was preparing to speak on behalf of the battle against breast cancer. She showed up in her native Long Island as an ambassador for 1 in 9: The Long Island Breast Cancer Action Coalition at a Gold Coast Branch bank for the unveiling of a breast cancer awareness banner.
