I have one of those "save the tatas" bumper magnets. I love it, so I definitely don't see a problem with the bracelet.

I think they're tacky, but they don't offend me at all.
I'd donate to the cause, but I wouldn't wear the bracelet.

I don't really find it "offensive", but I personally think it minimalizes the seriousness of it and makes it a bit of a joke. Like something a frat boy would wear on a t-shirt. It makes it seem sophomoric and childish IMO.

I think it is tacky, and IMO trivializes breast cancer. We are taking about CANCER, that is a serious disease, that affects womenn's breasts. It is not "I love boobies" for goodness sake! That is sick, and wrong.

Maybe we need to start a campaigne about testicular cancer that says, "I love balls". Would anyone wear that? If not, why not? After all, it brings awareness to male testicular cancer...right?

My school thought of it as inappropriate and made everyone take them off, which was mostly girls. I don't think it's a problem. It's funny and if it helps people fight breast cancer then I'm for it, if not, then it's kind of pointless.

Good points! The only ones I see wearing those bracelets are the 12 year old boys in my neighborhood. And they have no idea the bracelets are even in support of breast cancer (I asked a few of them). They mainly wear them b/c they really, really like seeing girls' boobs. Is it really necessary to sexualize breasts in order to gain support for research? I'm not gonna "love boobies" or "save the tatas"; but I will support breast cancer research.

BTW--yeah, I've seen people wearing "I Love Balls" t-shirts, but they definitely weren't talking about testicular cancer....at least as far as I know : )

I didn't vote. I likely wouldn't wear one, but if I was going to then I would also want to wear one with little penises to match ~ and only where it would be appropriate enough to wear them (like Mardi Gras or something).
