This.


Isn't PornHub then just trolling them? I've seen a lot of posts all over the internet about this. Brilliant tactic.

oukewldave: I find it interesting there is never talk of male breast cancer. Ever. 1% of cases are male...


The one major celebrity case of it I can recall is Peter Criss of Kiss discussing his bout with breast cancer. And even then, it was nowhere near the type of major news it would have been if a comparable female celebrity had revealed she had breast cancer.

Well, most men don't feel disfigured if they lose their breasts. Penis cancer is super rare but I think that would scare men more.

Louisiana_Sitar_Club: FunkOut: Of course, there's no such thing as medium tits, C cup and under are apparently considered a small niche market for men who are gay and/or secretly pedos. Or maybe it's D cup and under now that's considered small, I'm not up on the latest trends of breast size criticisms.

You sound flat.


A lot of the fetishism of large breasts comes from chubby chasers or guys with a fat wife/girlfriend who prefer to regard them as large breasted rather than fat.

I you want a woman with nipples/areolas pointy enough to poke out your eye you mostly have to go with the small chest sizes. If you say that looks like children then you know some weird children and may need a professional examination of your hard drive.

Apparently charitable organizations turn down money all the time. I once offered my local PBS a great deal of money. I mean a LOT of money. Years of funding. It came with caveats, and they turned it down. Happens.

Yes, but telling them that they had to air Sesame Street with a hardcore porno soundtrack laid over top of it was asking a bit much.

MoronLessOff: yet_another_wumpus: Howie Spankowitz: Fear_and_Loathing: Howie Spankowitz: I tell charities all the time that there is such a thing as "bad" money.

I worked for non-profits for 30 years.  Unfortunately, most don't understand the concept of bad money and also mistakenly believe there is free money.
 
I have lots of stories, but none of them are "CSB".  Sadly.

Exactly. Especially when you decide to accept corporate money. Corporations don't do philanthropy. They'll use the language of philanthropy, but what they do is marketing, and if you accept their money, you better know how to negotiate a gift agreement and understand the value of your charity's brand or the relationship will be imbalanced and...well, let's just say I could tell you some horror stories.

That's the joke.

/Komen has existed solely for pinkwashing for years, who are they kidding with this?

CSB
A company I worked for years ago had annual runs for United Way, Komen and some other popular charities. One year, during the Komen drive, the company that was contracted for my employer's food service was pushing an awareness menu. A special lunch and a pink frosted cupcake. I asked how much from the sales of the cupcakes were going to Komen. Answer, none.
/CSB


The only charity that has reached out to help me is a very small local group that comes by once a week with food and stuff and just play poker, watch movies or whatever I feel like doing. A small Baptist church I never heard of, and they love to drink beer and tell nasty jokes, etc. You just never know huh...
 
2012-10-06 02:42:53 PM  
And really, when Snuggies go pink, haven't we hit our awareness saturation point?


Agreed. No one "owns" the color pink. Especially Komen. They need to stop complaining about other groups using the color.

I'd like to hear some results of this ongoing research all the donations are supposedly paying for..... rather than seeing crappy-looking pink stuff everywhere.
 
2012-10-06 02:44:05 PM  
This was probably a smart move. Charities live and die by their wholesome public image.

Elzar: Donating to breast cancer research is admirable, but methinks this is just a publicity stunt for pornhub.


Right. When Ford or Maybelline donate to breast cancer research, they explicitly state that their donation must be anonymous. No big "Ford supports Breast Cancer research" PR launches featuring celebrities wearing pink standing next to Ford cars. No, no publicity stunts for them.

I suspect this is about the image of the charity. If the name of Susan G Komen got associated with porn then all the other corporate donors, none of whom want to be associated with porn, would flee.
 
2012-10-06 02:45:59 PM  
No charity should ever refuse to accept donations. It's basically the same thing as giving money to whatever group you think is too horrible to take money from.
 
2012-10-06 02:46:05 PM  

JesusJuice: A man is more likely to die from prostate cancer than a woman is from breast cancer, yet we have an entire month where I have to painstakingly avoid buying pink shiat because "OMG SAVE TEH TITTEHS".


Prostate cancer: Estimated new cases and deaths from prostate cancer in the United States in 2012:

New cases: 241,740
Deaths: 28,170

Breast cancer: Estimated new cases and deaths from breast cancer in the United States in 2012:

New cases: 226,870 (female); 2,190 (male)
Deaths: 39,510 (female); 410 (male)

It would appear that you are incorrect.

FirstNationalBastard: People shouldn't be donating to Komen, anyway.

There have to be other, better charities for breast cancer than that one. In fact, what does Komen exist for other than to get you to donate to them so they can have more ads about donating to them?




Bears repeating

Vodka Zombie: Of course they won't. Haven't we learned that Komen is kind of the Phelps Family of breast cancer? They just exist to sue people and be political trolls.


I now avoid all things Komen (all the pink stuff that shows up this time of year), after reading how they set aside over $1 mill of DONATED money to sue other cancer groups who use "Race for the Cure", and the outrageous salaries of the execs, and how little of the money they receive actually goes to breast cancer research, then they pulled the planned parenthood crap....yeah I hope that company, I mean "charity" goes down in flames. I'd rather give to our local Stephanie Spielman foundation, or of course Keep a Breast is funny with their I Love Boobies stuff. Long story even longer, Fark Komen.
 
2012-10-06 02:52:48 PM  
"Susan G. Komen for the Cure is not a partner of pornhub.com. We will not accept donations from this organization and have asked them to stop using our name."

Well it's too late now, Doc. I'm hooked!

Elzar: Donating to breast cancer research is admirable, but methinks this is just a publicity stunt for pornhub. I'll wait for them to donate to animal shelters for all the kittens that go missing everyday.

Thinking that Susan G. Komen donates money to research is also admirable.

Why not donate it to prostate cancer research charities? There seems to be a breast cancer research fundraiser going on every 2 seconds(including being prompted to do so when I buy coffee).

You hear almost nothing for stopping prostate cancer. Guess guys aren't as important. You would think a porn site would want customers alive.

My wife does a lot of breast cancer research fund-raising. I tried to get her to partner up with a local strip club and get the ladies to donate their lap dance money to the cause. I told her that place would be packed if guys could write off dances as charitable donations. She didn't think the nuns at her hospital would go for it.

So, out of $250 mil, they paid out $9 million to actually treat breast cancer... which was actually to another organization who did the work.

They've got enough money, I'm not supporting them for shiat.

I think they're trying to increase sales. You can find porn - quality porn - for free on the internet. So why pay? Start convincing potential customers that their money is actually a donation for a cause everyone can get behind and perhaps that will work. If you look at the amount they're agreeing to donate - it's actually quite small.

Where have you been the past 30 years or so? Men have been increasingly marginalized in every aspect of life, most ridiculously by men themselves in the interest of being 'modern' and politically correct. Even worse if you're the oh, so evil white male.
 
2012-10-06 03:15:49 PM  
Well, the porn industry has always been very supportive of breast-related surgery. And women being very healthy in general. I guess Komen's objection is because a condom is usually involved in their videos?

//Seriously, though, the Komen foundation is the closest thing to flat-out evil we've got this side of Todd Akin. They've actively lobbied _against_ both treatment and research for the very thing they're supposedly trying to prevent.

Vodka Zombie: Of course they won't. Haven't we learned that Komen is kind of the Phelps Family of breast cancer? They just exist to sue people and be political trolls.


A close friend was diagnosed with breast cancer during her third pregnancy four years ago. After removal of every feminine part of her anatomy (she had a relatively rare form of cancer that is driven in part by hormones-so everything must go and no hormone replacement either) and tons of other procedures she's as healthy as she can be.

Problem; what started as her husband doing the Komen 3 day has become a large interstate inter family fund raising endeavor. We take care of their kids while they walk and field fund raising requests from multiple people, all of whom we personally care about. I can't stand this organization but they are deeply attached to it in a personal way so I just grin and bear it.

Ah look, another excuse to spew hate at charity dedicated to fighting cancer that had the nerve to even think about not paying its protection money to Planned Parenthood, thus making it the equivalent of the nazi party or the klan or something.

Remember kids, it doesn't matter if you dedicate your life and your organization to fighting a horrible disease that mostly affects women... Failure to pay off liberals pet organizations makes you a villain.
 
2012-10-06 03:59:28 PM  
I keep seeing conflicting views on whether "tits" is profanity or not.
It's censored in songs (or was), usually censored on TV, and frowned upon in polite company.

But, it's not filtered on Fark, where we can't say shiat or coont .

I r confused

It was my understanding that prostate (and other Male Naughty Bit) cancer had blue ribbons, whilst colorectal cancer has the brown ribbon...

(Then again, I would argue for funding for gastrointestinal tract cancers in general. Colon cancer is still big and still a killer, and there are cancers of the gastrointestinal tract where you're STILL as good as dead when diagnosed unless you have a familial cancer syndrome and they specifically screen for it (non-islet-cell pancreatic cancer being among the nastiest of the bunch, but also including hepatic cancers--some of which are actually caused by hepatitis).

bulldg4life: xen0blue: he said it was entirely a non-political event until the media decided to interpret it as such

They brought in a far right-wing conservative that failed in a bid to become Georgia's governor. The person had already made an effort to defund PP through the political process and was a very outspoken critic of abortion.

The idea of creating ridiculous rules about organizations under investigation (PP being the victim of a congressional witch hunt) was purely political. And, during this time, they continued to support PSU despite the federal investigations. It was 100% political. It was an "abortion is evil" crusade led by Karen Handel.

Of course, if Susan G. Komen hired a devout anti-abortion activist as their senior vice-president of public policy and didn't expect her to make up a bullshiat reason to stop funding Planned Parenthood, then maybe they are stupider than I thought.


Yes, they did hire a conservative for president but she had nothing to do with defunding planned parenthood. There was a rule they put on the books to temporarily defund any organization under investigation by the government, and PP just happened to be one of them. The president was an oh-so-convenient scapegoat.

But you obviously know more than someone who worked there.
 
2012-10-06 04:18:41 PM  
This is because the Susan G Komer's foundation's focus is not breast cancer research. It is politics. Breast cancer research is merely the vehicle they use to bring politics into play. This is what makes them particularly despicable in my opinion.
 
2012-10-06 04:20:25 PM
