This Cancer Survivor’s TikTok Shows Why Some Breast Cancer Awareness Slogans Are Kind Of Offensive
Common breast cancer awareness slogans like “Save the Tatas” and “Save Second Base” are factually incorrect and sexualize the disease.

Tit rot is not sexual? Tits aren’t?

  1. “After all, you don’t see any “Save the Balls” shirts worn in April for Testicular Cancer Awareness Month.”

    I didn’t know there is a Testicular Cancer Awareness Month. The lower promotion of testicular cancer awareness suggests that there’s a gender inequity – though I have no idea on how many “people with testicles” get testicular cancer getting cancer there compared to people getting breast cancer. If a save the balls t-shirt works, someone should sell them.

    Men (males) can get breast cancer too. Are man boobs sexual? I’m not sure technically but I know mine aren’t.

  3. In the UK Prostate Cancer kills nearly twice as many people as breast cancer.
    Buzzfeed estimates USA male breast cancer incidence as 0.007% p.a. of whom 0.00017% will die (the others live for ever according to Buzzfeed) – UK it’s around 0.0005% with around one-quarter dying within five years, twice the rate for females.
    All the fuss is *because* it is a sexualised disease that (99+% of the time) affects women while the far bigger killer – prostate cancer – is almost totally ignored by MSM.

    Isn’t prostate cancer one of those diseases of the old with more men dying with it rather than of it?

    Conversely, although this happens with breast cancer and happened to a family member, a lot more women die of it rather than with it.

    Testicular cancer mostly affects youngish men and is most prevalent in the 20 to 40 age group.

    Unless you’re in the highest risk demographic you aren’t likely to see the awareness campaigns. I get bombarded with prostate cancer awareness ads but haven’t seen a testicular cancer one for quite a few years.

    To a certain extent yes. Three-quarters die “with” prostate cancer rather than *just* of it, but firstly, it almost certainly weakens the victim and accelerates death from other causes in a majority of cases and, secondly, the direct death rate is still nearly twice that for the much-hyped Breast Cancer.
    Cancer Research estimates that 18% of men have contracted/will contract prostate cancer and it causes 14% of cancer-related male deaths. It says 34% of new prostate cases are in men 75 or over, so two-thirds are in those younger, but it omits to supply any analysis thereof.

  6. If it gets people’s attention and they get screening or check then who cares, I remember many years ago after one of their colleagues had testicular cancer the Local morning show DJs promoting a monthly give your balls a feel on the 1st of each month with some plain language advice of having a good feel around in the shower or even getting someone to do it for you and what to do if you found anything. One of their main points being you were looking for change so needed to do it regularly.
    I’m sure someone people didn’t want to hear it when eating their cornflakes

  7. Hargreaves Lansdown bombard me with emails saying my portfolio isn’t diverse enough.
    The foliage I’m currently porting is one hairy cock and two balls of different sizes. What am I supposed to do to satisfy these pests, be Hitler?

  8. My Dad had testicular cancer, but since I was already alive at the time I never bothered to ask if they’d cut them off. Anyway, he survived another two or three decades.
    My rugby club has advice ads above the urinals. Having checked, I don’t think it’s hereditary.
