A few years ago, I went on an epic rant about all the stupid pink shit branded with Race For The Cure. I fucking hate the Komen organization (but I side with them over the Planned Parenthood kerfluffle if only because it should be able to fund whoever it wants, even the Fund For Satan if it chooses.) I made some great friends through that post, including a dear friend who later passed away due to the horrible disease and Matthew Zachary who runs I’m Too Young For This! Cancer Foundation, a very cool organization that helps young people who have cancer. (If you’re looking for a place to donate some charity dollars, I can not say enough good things about this organization. Please consider making a donation to I’m Too Young For This!)
Yet my cancer posts has caused some unintended consequences. I am mistaken for a cancer blogger sometimes, and automated programs single out my handful of cancer posts and use them for the “Related Links” content on other sites. Today I appeared on some cancer site there with an article that asks if deodorant causes cancer and links to my post encouraging the smelly unwashed to shower and use deo. I casually posit in my post, “deodorant does not cause cancer.”
Of all the things I say in that post, I’m surprised that is the one thing someone picked up. What about the smelly hippie comments? Those were gold, I’m telling you.
