YAY! Ladies dressed up as Playboy bunnies stopping cancer with sexxxxxiness!



Ugh. But seriously. Do we have to go over this every year? I don’t know that people who have cancer feel like it’s super sexy, but whatever! Those people are party poopers. Cancer = boring amiright?

    I’m thinking I won’t pass this on to one of my dear friends with terminal breast cancer. Apparently just dying isn’t enough.

  • Cancer below the waist – can’t say cervical or penis – this is pathetic and childish. We can honour survivors or those who died of cancer in many ways, but using porn imagery is childish and insulting.

  • Krystyna

    I agree with you that there’s no need to sex up cancer. However, to me, the underwear affair has always seemed more silly than sexy.

    Maybe this cheering squad will come w/me next month when I undergo my grueling battery of (monitoring) tests: drinking a vat of nasty barium suspension, hot flashes courtesy of iodine-based IV contrast media (don’t forget to drink plenty of water afterwards!) Because it’s so damn sexy when I’m pissing & shitting my brains out afterwards.
