#WINNING(?)

Well, maybe.

At least consider the Komen controversy well and truly #occupied:

The Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation backed down from its decision to cut funding for Planned Parenthood, which provides abortion and birth control services, a move that had thrust the world’s largest breast cancer charity into a deeply politicized controversy.

Komen faced a massive outcry from its own supporters as well as Planned Parenthood’s, who believed Komen had came under pressure from anti-abortion activists.

“We want to apologize to the American public for recent decisions that cast doubt upon our commitment to our mission of saving women’s lives,” Komen said in a statement on Friday signed by its board of directors and its founder Nancy Brinker.

Brinker: take your fauxpology and stuff it.  The walkback is only the beginning of Step One (and it remains to be seen if the funding will actually materialize).  Step Two: Clean House.

Your choice of VP, the repulsive Karen Handel, who retweets things like this:

…and any of the other woman-hating fetus fetishists (and bigots)  who’ve undoubtedly infested the upper levels of Komen will try this again if they’re left in positions of responsibility.  They are all in dire need a gold-plated, pink-ribbon-festooned, frozen steel-toed boot to the ass, el pronto.  If they love fetuses so much more than women, let them spend their time riding around in a fetusmobile©®™, not sucking back huge amounts of unwitting donor dollars from a breast cancer charity that they treacherously use to devise sleazy ways to jack women around.

Komen has fucked up royally: I for one will never donate to them again because I simply can’t trust them.  Certainly not as long as people like the putrid Handel are on board.  That an organization whose slogan is “Dedicated to a world without breast cancer” would put anti-choice ideology before women’s heath is absolutely unthinkable.  That the likes of Handel will try it again is inevitable.

Winning?  We’ll see.  Believe me, we’ll be watching.  When Karen Handel gets the gold-plated Boot, I’ll be the first to tweet her a  sympathetic “Cry me a freaking river”.

    When you read the statement carefully, it is a bunch of bafflegab-no guarantee of any further funding for Planned parenthood down the road..
    The great thing about all this hoohaw is that a few journalists dug just that bit deeper and discovered some rather heinous stuff about ol’ KomenGetit…less than 20% of the donated funds are actually used for anything real; the rest is swallowedupin administrative embezzellment..and any bitch that lowers herself to the piss-poor standards of Brinker, getting rich off her dead sister’s disease, is less than human IMOP..not one red (or pink) cent from me, ever, don’t care if they give every bit of that less than 20% to Planned Parenthood..they are nothing but the worst sort of joke now..women exploiting women..gotta love it…
    When I was very young and very scared, Planned Parenthood helped me to save my sanity..I don’t forget….

    Hi 🙂
    Yeah, it sounded like a load of happy horseshit to me, a lame attempt at damage control. “We changed our minds, now everyone forgive us and go back to buying pink shit again”. Oh, sure! 👿

    That. Exactly. Read my next post.
    (I’m going to nap for the next hour… urrrgghh… but I’ll be back)


Wait. What?
