    Breast cancer stuff is always *really* expensive and only a bit goes to charity....I'd rather stick the whole lot in a charity tin.

    I agree that other conditions should have exposure but it's not something that can be solved by asking Breast Cancer to hide its light under a bushel.

    I'm not always a fan of everything pink but I know that it's an extremely priviliged position to have, hence why I cannot fathom these 'anti' sites.

    pink is not one of my fave colours (unless nipple or pleased pussy pink as both of those are lovely)

    more colour options on toys would be great

    WandA, I really agree with you - assuming I understand you. It's a really hard topic to broach, but I get very fed up with Breast Cancer being the "fashionable disease", for want of a less offensive phrase. I never mean to offend anyone, but it's as if no other cancers, or other diseases for that matter, even exist when put up against the emotive images associated with breasts diseases. I really hope no one is offended by my comments, but it drives me insane that so many other much more serious and deserved conditions get ignored.

    I thought that would redirect me to the lovly company that is FemmeFresh 'cos vaginas smell (apparently)!

    Why does the internet have the abilty to make us ranty about almost anything? Must hold it back...

    Generally they smell pretty good to me... But anyway, it's a really interesting site, and it's also really really up against it. We thought we had it bad buying clothes for my son where he gets one aisle in a clothes shop compared to 6 for girls, however you then try and buy clothes for girls and it's 5 3/4 aisles of pink and 1/4 of other colorurs...

    And as for the ranting.... http://xkcd.com/386/

    Ad: "That's you that is." (To me).

    Oops!

    Made me laugh! I will not rant about 'fit' boys on kid's clothes...

    I agree with this but I do agree it's frustrating that some things seem to evoke more emotions than others. Male cancers, for example, should be represented more in terms of awareness campaigns. Particular testicular cancer because it's a young men's cancer which many people are unaware of and should be!

    Keeping on topic - most things that come in pink have another option (from what I've noticed) but personally I like most colours and nothing really bothers me apart from lilac (purple is my favourite colour [though that changes on a weekly basis] but I just can't stand lilac) and brown (unless it's mimicking skin tone).

    I have an irrational dislike of lilac too... Perhaps its my despisation (Huh, is that a word? Wordies, help me out with a catchy word for 'to despise') of lavender.

    I think it's called being doilyphobic.

    Meh? Aren't doilies those weird nan mats on tables?
