Save The Boobies

I’m not a huge fan of boob-centric Breast Cancer Awareness campaigns. When you promote it as a “save the boobs” or “save the tatas” kind of thing, you focus on the sexualized body part and not on the woman that possesses said boobs. What about save the women? Save the people that are attached to these body parts instead of “save the tits because they’re hot and women are hotter when they have their breasts attached to them” is a much better sentiment. However, I do support any and all campaigns to raise money for breast cancer research.

And so, I submitted photos to the 2009 Boobie-Thon, which raises money for breast cancer research. The Boobie-Thon runs through tomorrow evening. I’m on both the paid and unpaid galleries. Can you find me?

    I want to make a t-shirt for Prostate Cancer Awareness that reads "Save the Male G-Spot". ;o)

    Well I have never taken it that way at all. I have always seen it as that organization trying to be progressive. Clearly saving the people behind the body part is the main goal here. I don't see it as an effort to save that body part but to raise awareness on breast cancer and how prolific it is. And honestly wouldn't most of us rather have our boobs? Given the choice I'll choose my life but if there was any way to save them I would do it.

    Agree with you on all fronts Brit. I even submitted some pictures as well (though I’m as easy to identify as you are).

    April – It is possible for there to be body part oriented campaigns that don’t objectify women; it’s just not very common (most campaigns center on the male gaze). It’d be similar to having a campaign to cure sickle cell disease cause we really need blacks in basketball (though this was a very crude example – not to mention it’s not only blacks that get sickle cell disease, but that’s a common misconception so I ran with it). Yes the campaign may ultimately lead to good, but in doing so it also reinforces negative stereotypes.
