I have been so confused by these statuses, in no way would I know it had anything to do with breast cancer.

And how would where you put your purse have anything to do with breast cancer?

I got a message about that (didn’t do it) but it didn’t say anything about being for breast cancer awareness.

I would have no idea what that meant and I don’t see the connection

Yeah they also been posting only the color of their bras too. I don’t like it either. I didn’t participate.

AGREED!  The one that really irritated me was the one last year when people were posting “colors” that were supposed to be the color of the bra they were wearing.  The day that was going around, I had one friend who just finished her chemo and one of my close friend’s mother passed away that day after battling breast cancer.  My mother is also a cancer survivor, btw.  I just felt like they were trivializing a very seroius thing.  I was very offended by it.

Oh, I saw some of these and wondered what in the world they were referring to. Thanks for clearing that up. And yes, I couldn’t agree more–what does this have to do with breast cancer? I mean this honestly–what does where you put your purse have to do with anything? So confused. And I can’t stand mundane comments that are meant to sound sexual. What’s the message there? “Please link everything I say to sex, whether it’s about sex or not, because, let’s face it, I’m a woman and all i’m good for is sex. I’m also incapable of making any kind of direct, articulate statement.” Ok, so I’m taking this a little too far…but it does annoy me!

No, definitely not, it irritates me as well.  In my opinion, if you want to promote breast cancer awareness on facebook, then post about raising money, or stories of survivors or links to donate.  The cryptic messages are just creepy.

I just saw an update that said “I like it on the floor” and had NO idea what it was talking about.  So thank you!  But it in no way raises any kind of awareness about breast cancer…just like saying what color bra you were wearing did in a similar chain message a few months ago.  I hate all “repost this blah blah” statuses.

i agree. i don’t see how “where you like to keep your purse” relates to breast cancer. i’d rather you just write “it’s breast cancer awareness month” in your status. a bunch of people sent me those stupid ones and i ignored them all. in my mind it trivializes it. i don’t really like facebook in general so i thought maybe it was just me….glad to hear it’s not.

Weird. I remember the “write the color of your bra as your FB status” which I thought was pretty stupid. This is even worse.

THANK YOU!  I have been SO confused about these statuses, I was hoping someone would explain it to me.  But yeah, purses have nothing to do with breast cancer, and vice-versa.

The thing that makes me sad is not that someone would think of it but how many women play right into it.
