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.

/ also tubegalore/tubestack are much better porn aggregators

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.

If only they were donating for every pop-up of LiveJasmin. Breast caner research would rake in untold billions within hours.

I can't stand Komen, but as a nonprofit professional for the past 25 years, I can tell you it's not asinine at all that they wouldn't accept this donation. Charities aren't obligated to accept money that doesn't come from sources aligned with their values or that might attach their brand to things that their other supporters might find unsavory. I tell charities all the time that there is such a thing as "bad" money.

CSB time: When I was with the United Way, a wealthy gentleman offered us the largest individual gift we'd ever had, with one major restriction: we had to ensure that not a single dime was used to provide any services to illegal immigrants. We could have rationalized a way to fund things that were less likely to serve illegal immigrants, but it would have set a horrible precedent. Wee turned it down. "Bad" money.

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.

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?

Howie Spankowitz: I can tell you it's not asinine at all that they wouldn't accept this donation.


Yeah - it's clearly a publicity grab on the porn site's part. And frankly it's more than insensitive - especially for women who have undergone radical mastectomies.

Komen would have ended up losing far more more than they gained.

Komen is the worst, and I don't know why anyone would give them money anymore. The last straw was when they started suing any other charity that used "for the cure" in the name of any event. Remember, donations to Komen are donations to lawyers to sue other charities. Find another worthwhile cause.

You couldn't be more completely and utterly wrong. Someone I know was an accountant at Susan G Komen at their HQ in Dallas either right before or right after that whole controversy, and he said it was entirely a non-political event until the media decided to interpret it as such, at which point the organization was forced to make a scapegoat of their CEO over essentially nothing. Also, he said all those talk about the organization pocketing something ridiculous like 90% of the money they raised was complete bullshiat.

After that, I learned the media could be evil sons of biatches.

Same problem colo-rectal cancer has, no one wants to think about prostates. There's a lot of emphasis on breast self exam but a lot of people have lower abdominal symptoms they just ignore that turn out to be cancer. They nee to publicise "signs you might have bowel/ovary/prostate cancer, get your ass to the doctor pronto" more.

I work with non-profits, big and small, virtually everyday, and have worked with Komen on multiple occasions.

That being said, If you're looking to donate to the cause, my recommendation is the American Cancer Society. Great, passionate people, as far as my experience goes.

Cancer Research - because looking for a cure is more lucrative than actually finding one.

Unfortunately you are 100% correct. My last two treatments made me feel so bad, I didn't even open the laptop for several days.
But another view is that without cancer, the world would be VERY overpopulated.
I'm allowed to say this because I might be one of those people. I faced the fact and have accepted it.
There's worse ways to go, but we all get our shot at some time. I just hoped it would be at least long enough to have grandchildren..

BTW...When I kick the bucket, can we have an Atlanta Fark party and have a shiatload of fun?
None of this sad crap!
Most of my family doesn't know because they go off the deep end.
I prefer people getting shiatfaced drunk and talking about being surprised after all of the broken bones, snake bites, jealous husbands, etc, I made it this long.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

New cases: 241,740

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
 
2012-10-06 02:51:17 PM  

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.

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.

This.

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


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.

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.

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.

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 04:30:00 PM  
Yup, I am not a fan of this particular charity, and there are plenty of others that actually spend a much higher percentage of their money to actually research cures rather than paying themselves, paying to protect themselves and paying to promote themselves.

And yes, there are plenty of other forms of cancer that require more research. Why not lung cancer, which is the #1 mortal cancer in Canada? How about Colorectal cancer, which is not gender specific at all, and kills almost as many. I mean, prostate and breast cancer deaths together equal about the same number as colorectal cancer. It's just that it's now cool to wear pink (even as a guy) to show you care. Why don't we care about men's prostates? Or everybody's colon?

IMO that's the big success of Susan G. Komen - lots of awareness. Sadly, not lots of money.

And yes, while we are at the awareness part, how about a campaign about when to get yer butt to the doctor for a checkup?
 
2012-10-06 04:33:44 PM  
I agree that Breast Cancer Awareness Month has gotten totally out of control. My mom and my grandma are both breast cancer survivors, and they asked me to wear pink every day this month with them. I think it's kind of silly and it accomplishes nothing, but hey, they're the ones who puked through chemo and got their funbag(s) chopped off. I'll do what they ask me to do.

I don't give money to Komen, but I do volunteer my time and make occasional donations to a local hospital with a very good breast health program.

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.


My non-profit only takes individual donations (and some trusts if set up by individuals/couples) for that reason.

We still got screwed bc another group working with us on legislation belatedly disclosed they had taken money from the industry the legislation was about. We independently decided to take the moderate road with legislation (as opposed to the two other camps of "wild wild west no regulation" and "ban it all"), but that automatically made us look suspect too, when in reality, we picked the middle ground because it was the most realistic.

Stupid, sucks for the budget sometimes, but at least it keeps us more honest. I guess. I don't doubt that the large donors get their voice heard a little more than others, but there's no one huge company/party/donor that could pull money from us and really affect us.

Howie Spankowitz: Charities aren't obligated


Didn't we already establish that Komen isn't a charity and very probably never has been? Yes? Good. Then this doesn't apply to them.

Howie Spankowitz: CSB time: When I was with the United Way, a wealthy gentleman offered us the largest individual gift we'd ever had, with one major restriction: we had to ensure that not a single dime was used to provide any services to illegal immigrants. We could have rationalized a way to fund things that were less likely to serve illegal immigrants, but it would have set a horrible precedent.


Not seeing the relation. Pornhub.com isn't insisting that a portion of the donation not be spent on small boobed women. Indeed they've very much suggested otherwise.

As for Komen, apparently their mission of late is to find the pinkest way to self destruct, and that seems to be working out nicely for them in this latest move.

Komen used to be good about this stuff- strip club fundraisers, etc. But they sacrificed themselves on the altar of Republican Jesustm a while ago.

Also, the pink ribbon stuff was originally the Breast Cancer Research Foundation's deal, but Komen swooped in and declared it was THEIRS, ALL THEIRS, and even tried suing the BCRF for using the thing the BCRF invented.

Day can't come soon enough for Komen to go under and BCRF or another decent charity get their assets.

Well, to be fair, it's likely actually about $22 out of $260 million, on modest assumptions and fuzzy math*. Still, that's pretty terrible, at ~8.4% efficiency.

*The math gets wonky because the indirect treatment expenditures through intra-organizational donations. Komen spent $9 of $180 million directly (5%), but some portion of $76m (which is 42% of the $180m) indirectly on treatment [or other legitimate aim, such as research]. We might assume those organizations are equally (in)efficient, but on that assumption there are substantial doubly-indirect treatment expenditures, and so on. Doing an infinite sum would be silly, given the assumptions and vagueness involved (let alone the possibility of intra-organizational donation loops). So, just the first few iterations:

$9m directly
$3.8m indirectly (5% of $76m)
$1.6m doubly-indirectly (42% of $76m is $32m, and 5% of that is $1.6m)
$.65m triply-indirectly (42% of $32m is $13m, and 5% of that is $.65m)

Since these are rough anyway, let's just call it $15m out of that $180m. That's 8.33% efficiency. They still have $80m unspent (well, presumably that's why their expenditures are $80m less than their revenue), and if applied at the same ratio would yield an additional $6.666m in treatment. That is, it will be about $21.7m out of the $260m.

$.65m triply-indirectly (42% of $32m is $13m, and 5% of that is $.65m)

Since these are rough anyway, let's just call it $15m out of that $180m. That's 8.33% efficiency. They still have $80m unspent (well, presumably that's why their expenditures are $80m less than their revenue), and if applied at the same ratio would yield ...

I should also note, it is somewhat doubtful that the organizations Komen donates to are equally bad. I don't care enough to research further (since I won't donate to them anyway), but some of those charitable organizations you characterize as "other chapters, buddies, etc" might be legitimate, for all I know. In particular, do you know if any of them conduct medical research themselves?

Unfortunately, "Charities" like the Komen Foundation aren't required to report every details of their business. The 990 is the only info you can really get without digging to hard.

You're obviously some sort of shill for them, because you'll spend so much time going through details, then defend them from multiple angles.

Just like most other large charities.. the original focus is lost once the money starts coming in.

Now, fark off.

That could be several billion dollars!


Not quite, but several thousand is a distinct possibility. Too bad Komen is apparently too good for boobie money.

Fortunately, the iron_city_ap foundation for breast viewing is gladly accepting any/all donations.

I think we're all aware of breast cancer at this point. Now, we should actually do something about it.

LOLWUT?

My "defense" of them was merely pointing out that they aren't quite as terrible as you said they were (at 8.4% rather than 3.5% efficiency), and indicating some relevant uncertainties. I don't understand how you extrapolate that I'm some kind of shill out of that, especially when I explicitly said 1) that the 8.4% efficiency is still terrible, and 2) that I won't donate to them.

I guess we just differ in that I prefer my opinions to be based on reality.

So Jeff Dahmer isn't quite as terrible as I saw because he only killed 17 before he got caught instead of 20.

Bad is bad... Komen is a shiat company extorting the public will to aid those in need.

Don't be a knave.

Well, no. It is true that 17 murders is not quite as terrible as 20 murders (taking a simplistic model of life valuation, which makes sense since this is hypothetical). But, so far as evaluating serial murderers is concerned, the number has more to do with how long they manage to get away with it than how terrible they are. The primary thing that makes them terrible is their desire and willingness to kill people, and that can be equal despite different numbers of murders.

But, when it comes to evaluating charitable organizations, the primary consideration is their efficiency. So, differences in that number do matter. 3.5% and 8.4% are both terrible, but that is a substantial difference.

I don't see why you're having some much trouble with this. If you want to convince people not to donate to Komen, you might as well use numbers that reflect reality.

/BTW, I assume that even you would admit that what Komen does is not nearly as bad as what Dahmer did, so you had better well abandon your "bad is bad" criteria. Your binary thinking is plainly absurd.

I bet you if you stopped eating a bunch of junky ass American growth hormone cows and genetically modified corn you probably wouldn't get breast cancer. Pink frosted cupcakes and cookies, the irony!

If Pornhub's service runs counter the organization's ideals and philosophy why should they accept the money? Would the NAACP accept donations from the KKK? Who knows, but I don't think too many people would blame them for turning it down.

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.


This. Susan G. Komen isn't about breast cancer - that's almost secondary these days. It's about marketing. "Pinkwashing", as term, was invented solely to describe them.

Only 21% of their total budget goes towards supporting breast cancer research.

If you want to support breast cancer research, there are smaller charities that are actually focused on breast cancer research, not allowing other companies to exploit the disease to turn a profit. Don't buy a product that promises to donate "a portion of their proceeds" - hell, for American Express, that "portion" was exactly one penny per transaction, no matter the size of the transaction. Komen gets a bit of cash from the company in exchange for the rights to use them to market products, the company gets more money from well-meaning consumers, and the folks who are actually suffering suffer a bit more because four-fifths of what could be a donation gets turned instead into the pocket-lining of both Komen and companies.

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.

/ also tubegalore/tubestack are much better porn aggregators


Ok, let's assume for the sake of argument that the guy running the site has zero interest in helping anyone, and is doing this purely because he thinks he'll get more traffic by that method than spending a comparable portion of his profits on advertising. So... it's purely an ad/PR campaign - 100% selfish motives.

Who cares? It's legitimately earned money, and helps people all the same, regardless of where it came from. See also: Billionaires donating for a tax writeoff - equally selfish, but why would you reject it?

xen0blue: 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.


Respectfully, your friend who works there has either swallowed Komen management's BS story, or is trying to add to Komen's public spin.

a) The rule was instituted by someone with a public record of attempting to defund planned parenthood.
b) Insiders - your accountant friend aside - state that the rule was designed to single out planned parenthood.
c) PP was not - as you suggest - one of several groups effected by the rule. The rule effected a single organization; PP, just as it was designed to.

There is more than ample evidence, both direct and circumstantial, to suggest that Komen sought to cut themselves off from PP for political reasons.

FreetardoRivera: Howie Spankowitz: I can't stand Komen, but as a nonprofit professional for the past 25 years, I can tell you it's not asinine at all that they wouldn't accept this donation. Charities aren't obligated to accept money that doesn't come from sources aligned with their values or that might attach their brand to things that their other supporters might find unsavory. I tell charities all the time that there is such a thing as "bad" money.

CSB time: When I was with the United Way, a wealthy gentleman offered us the largest individual gift we'd ever had, with one major restriction: we had to ensure that not a single dime was used to provide any services to illegal immigrants. We could have rationalized a way to fund things that were less likely to serve illegal immigrants, but it would have set a horrible precedent. Wee turned it down. "Bad" money.

I've worked for a couple of places that did sales donation stuff for Komen. M&M Mars, for instance, had a partnership for a while.

In all that time, I could never figure out exactly what that meant to donate to them. Like, where does that money really go? If you were to believe the talk on it, throwing another million at research will make the scientists work faster to cure the disease. Which, clearly is nonsense. (Although, I think that's what people really think)

And after reading this this thread, I see there are even stronger opinions than mine. My eyes have been opened a bit.

Wow. Bad call.Think of all the people all that money could've helped.

In the early 90s I worked for a company that urged (though strictly on a voluntary basis) UW participation, and we always had the option of where our donations went. So either the policy changed over the years, or..,you're making your story up?

Another reason the United Way sucks.

FirstNationalBastard: 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.


Rod Roddy was a big proponent of both breast and prostate cancer after he contracted both.
