Girls Hate Pink – Alert the Authorities!

Filed under: — Jaime @ 8:23 pm

I am utterly dismayed and disappointed that my birthday month has allegedly been been co-opted by breast cancer awareness month. Forgive my pettiness (if it is such, which I sort of doubt) – but a) the color pink SUCKS and is the ugliest color in the spectrum and b) who ISN’T aware of breast cancer – do we REALLY need a whole month dedicated to this? Especially the particularly awesome month of October?

Too many of the places I consider to be part of my normal life are now flipped upssidedown to recognize that of which we were already aware – the NFL homepage, the Talmadge bridge – now ALL pink, much to my chagrin and dismay. Pink is UGLY. Can I emphasize that enough?! Pink is UGLY..UGLY…UGLY….! I don’t care the cause – if pink if your banner flag, please stop waving it – it’s U-G-L-Y!

I don’t give a flying cancer cell that ‘pink’ now represents something or other to some people. The color is the ugliest of ugly and has no place showing itself in the autumn, a time for warm reds, yellow, and oranges. GO AWAY PINK. GO AWAY!!!! I hate you. I hate PINK.

Further, we are ALL aware of breast cancer. Seriously – who needs a breast cancer awareness month? Are you one of the few under a rock NOT aware of breast cancer? Of course not. You never had an option. You are aware whether you like it or not.

We don’t need any sophomoric reminders, we don’t need every normal aspect of our autumn lives turned into an unnatural color because of some desperate need pretend we love our western women more than we actually do. Just stop already…please! Let’s move back to the lovely pumpkin orange of norm.

PINK SUCKS. PINK SUCKS. PINK SUCKS. PINK SUCKS. PINK SUCKS. PINK SUCKS. PINK SUCKS. Amen and goodnight. Have I mentioned the color pink SUCKS?

    So you’re saying you don’t like pink? LOL, sorry, I could not help myself. Surely, though, the colors of October should be more closely related to my very favorite holiday, don’t you think? (No, not your birthday, Jaime. Sorry!)

    Was I that obvious? Pink is unnatural for autumn – my birthday regardless. Pastels = the suck – for this time of year. Pink is fine for easter eggs, not jackolanterns! :P
