Alright, we gotta hit the road. Okay?
Who really benefits from the pink ribbon campaigns: the cause or the company? In showing the real story of breast cancer and the lives of those who fight it, this film reveals the co-opting of what marketing experts have labeled a “dream cause.”
If you’re a woman, take the time to watch the documentary Pink Ribbons, Inc.
Watch it on
Youtube (for now…) (x)
Glad to see this on Tumblr. I don’t Pink. I don’t Run for a Cure. Write a check to your favorite women’s health charity.
I want a cure, I want research and support services and free diagnosis and treatment, I want lives saved. I do not give a flying fuck about pink ribbons, when less than 25% of Komen’s budget goes into research, but they do litigiously pursue competing organizations for trademark infringement.
Find an org that is all about research or care or free services or support and write a check, click a donate button, give to someone who calls you but stop supporting an org that doesn’t do the actual work.
PLEASE DON’T BUY THESE PRODUCTS
lookhuman.com is a website that is currently selling two designs that are closely ripped off of phrases that i coined and popularized on my sideblog, fuckyeahsubversivekawaii, and on this blog. while they haven’t directly stolen my art or the art of my co-mod on FYSK, it’s very clear after browsing the rest of their merchandise that they get all their material by stealing ideas and phrases from popular tumblr posts and art.
i’ve decided not to take any kind of legal action. i know that the phrases are mine (and my co-mod’s, in the case of mermaids against misogyny), and you guys know that the phrases are ours, but there really isn’t much i can do besides post links to prove that my versions of these designs were up far, far sooner than these items were made (which i will do shortly.)
all i can do is ask you guys not to support this store. they are intellectual thieves (and shoddy activists - the vast majority of their merch is printed on american apparel products, which is funny when they’re selling “feminist” slogans).
and here’s the original sketch of my “dead men don’t catcall” design, posted on FYSK in june of 2013: [x]
along with the finished illustration which was posted in october: [x]
if you would like to purchase items with the dead men don’t catcall illustration, you can get them at my cafepress (where all the items are responsibly sourced.) i also have an etsy connected to FYSK, and i hope to offer more pinback buttons (including mermaids against misogyny ones!) by the end of the week.
thank you for your time, and sorry for stretching your dashes!
I like this blog and I want good things for them, so buy some cute feminist stuff from them and not the other guys yay
