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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

robohobo: 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.

Bontesla: 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.


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

I like the gagging vids. Anyone support throat cancer charities? I'd like to think myself moral while enjoying my depravity.

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

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.


I'm actually curious. Do go on. The back-handed evil deeds of others are fascinating to me.

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.

/end CSB


One of these things is not like the others,

One of these things just doesn't belong,

Can you tell which thing is not like the others

By the time I finish my song?

GAT_00: Why the fark are they wasting their money on Komen? Donate the money to a real research group.

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.

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.
