Jocular Look @ Today’s News: I’m angered by Susan G. Komen rejecting money raised by a porn site


 

It doesn’t matter if you’re into itty-bitty-titties, the perfect handful, jumbo fun-bags or low-swinging flapjacks, what matters most is that your kind and selfless gesture will go a long way towards helping our sisters to find a cure.

Help Pornhub ‘Save the Boobs’ by watching tons of porn

It’s no pink handgun, but the latest breast cancer research fundraising venture to show up in our inboxes is almost as bizarre. Pornhub.com, a free online adult entertainment website, has announced that it will be donating a portion of its October revenue to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The Cut reported that Pornhub.com will be giving the foundation one cent for every 30 views of it’s breast-related videos (specifically its “Big Tits” and “Small Tits” clips) through October 31st in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to a press release:

It doesn’t matter if you’re into itty-bitty-titties, the perfect handful, jumbo fun-bags or low-swinging flapjacks, what matters most is that your kind and selfless gesture will go a long way towards helping our sisters to find a cure. 

Simply visit the landing page on Pornhub’s site (link available upon request) and follow the prompts, or head to the ‘categories’ tab on Pornhub.com’s home page and choose either “Small Tits” or “Big Tits” videos, then sit back and let the good times bounce.

UPDATE: 10/4 2:29 p.m.Pornhub.com released a statement Thursday afternoon indicating that they will no longer be donating a portion of their October revenue to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

UPDATE: 10/4 3:16 p.m.A Komen spokesperson responded via email to The Huffington Post‘s request for comment, stating: “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.”

I guess its not that much of a Race

The Susan G. Komen foundation has rejected donation from popular porn site PornHub which is just an indication that they do not think breast cancer is a serious issue. I remember one period in my life where all I had to eat for a week was 5 slices of bread, i was so hungry at the end of that week that I would have gladly eaten all he food I hated to eat. Actually at that moment of my life, I didn’t have a winter coat and my shoes had many holes. I think I died a few times when I had to walk 60 blocks in the snow and wind to pick up my lady. If pornhub had given me a sammich or just actually a kind word I would have taken it without hesitation.

A friend of mine lost his mom to breast cancer. I knew her well. She would  laugh at my jokes she was a beautiful lady. If I lost my mom to breast cancer or my sister, or even if I heard that an ex-gf had succumbed to that I would be devastated. I find not accepting this money to be hypocritical. I mean non of us are saints and everyone has seen porn at one point or another.  No one is a moral authority or example. We have all done some shitty things in life. This is money that can be used to help others, to give some kid in the future maybe a month or two more with his dying mom. It might even in the future allow s child an opportunity to grow up with his mother/ That is something meaningful.

The Silver Lining

There are two journalistic rules I always abide by though I am effectively not a journalist. They are :
  1. A journalist is only as good as his sources 
  2. Verification before dissemination.  

So I went to porn hub myself and found they are still raising Money for Breast Cancer. They are just not giving it to the Susan Komen foundation.So please do your part, literally to support the effort like some readers have already vowed to do:

  • as long as i’m helping fight breast cancer…..
  • well, if it’ll help further cancer research…i guess i can watch a little…
  • This is a revolution I can get behind!
  • Well, you all know that I really dont ‘want’ to watch naked breasts all day.  But I suppose I will if it helps, uhm. whatever it was it’s supposed to help.  I’ll figure that out later.   I’m off to save the boobies by staring at them all day.Sigh.  The things I do to help the world.

  1. Personally, I’m glad they’re NOT donating to Susan G. Komen. The organization is currently administrated by individuals with a political agenda that does not center around supporting women.This goes beyond last year’s debacle with the cut to Planned Parenthood funding . They continue to refuse to address environmental concerns that cause cancer because they are so largely tied to corporations that contribute to environmental risk factors. The VP is deeply involved in anti-democratic measures such as the new voter registration laws that make it harder for people of certain demographics to vote. Not to mention, their funds are spent mostly on a lot of pointless education campaigns and NOT on helping low income women receive screening and/or treatment.

    There are much better ways to support breast cancer research and treatment out there.
