Glad you figured out how to live with pink crap all over the place. Personally I would be happy if I never saw another pink ribbon again (BC on both sides). I have another cancer (one of the non-hodgkin's lymphomas) and I am grateful that the invasive cancer marketing machine has stayed out of that one. I have no desire to wear that I have cancer on my sleeve like I have team spirit for cancer. I do not identify with the garbage that goes on connected with the pink invasion. Cancer is not who I am it is what I have. And I feel no obligation to get involved in all that crap. Maybe we should have venereal disease day. Yup. Lets announce to the world that you have VD and permanently identify with that. Nope nope nope. So why is it ok to do that with BC? That I have or have had BC shouldn't mean I have to learn how to dismiss, look past, whatever... the pink invasion. The pink marketing machine that has invented this for its own purpose. Further I resent the attempts by this marketing machine to make people feel guilty when they have lived through BC cancer crap and then walk away from being branded for life by it. It is time for it to go away.
