Movember making headway....bonbon pink October used for personal advancement and ratings?

Mo'body does it better.
3 Dec 2013

A MANITOBA man has collected the most cash worldwide this Movember, adding a staggering $130,000 ($120,000 USD) to the cause. Joey Johannson accomplished the feat with the help of his employer MEG energy, who matched his fund-raising efforts dollar-for-dollar. Joey and his wife Chantelle also proved themselves winners when they won the best ‘Mo-Bro’ and ‘Mo-Sista’ at the Calgary Movember party, last week. Joey says that his father, diagnosed with prostate cancer five years ago, inspires his fundraising efforts. Joey beat fellow Canadian and Toronto native Mark Rockett into second place with a spectacular $101,156.

Canada proved the most successful country at raising cash this year having raised over $28m, beating the United Kingdom into second place with a total of $22m. The United States, Australia, and Ireland, made up the top five.
Many celebrities pledged their talents to the Movember cause this year. Rapper Snoop Dogg grew a Mo’ of his own and helped design an exclusive Snoop Movember tee-shirt to generate funds for the cause. Other notables included Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield who created a self-deprecating video of his daily exploits since his return from space.

The total amount of cash raised by Movember this year was over $101m. The money raised by the charity will go to fund a number of men’s health initiatives related to prostate cancer,testicular cancer, and mental health.

By no means should support for one cause compete with one another, both are as important as the other, and movember has a long way to go before it parallels pink october, a big thank you to those who do go out of their way to show the importance of cancer research for men...but when one is used for self promotion then you know they are not doing it for the right reasons...
Case in point...
For a couple of years I have been watching the support especially in sports for both causes and noticed many of  them, as in football or professional wresting for instance...is definitely one sided...actually movember is not even mentioned in either one, as far as I know.
It is hard to watch big bad men on the field wearing bonbon pink and going after each other in battle, though not all agree or like the idea of wearing pink, all support the cause as we all do, but when november came along, none of these sports even mentioned movember....
In the wwe for instance, we see so much pink in October, that I find it nauseating, I don't specifically like the idea of men wearing so much bonbon pink, (but that's me) not that I do not support equal representation of support for cancer research, I have daughters so that's a given, but when October comes along, we see guys like john cena wearing pink, promoting men to wear pink and all wwe performers, but when movember came along...nothing, not even one mention...
So, pink for cancer research is popular, brings in self promotion, but movember not been as popular of should I say frowned upon by feminists? is to be ignored?...When someone does that it points to the idea that popularity is more important than the cause, therefore these organisation do not promote it for it's true meaning but for ratings...
And when someone does it for rating instead of the actual cause then why should anyone support those (sports) organisations, if they did support the "real idea" behind the bonbon pink, they should have at least support movember, even if its just for a week, but if they would of done that, feminists would of screamed, demonized them and give them bad publicity????
Hence support for all the wrong reasons is not support but a sorry attempt to increase ratings....
This is a perfect example of what society, since the beginning of time has been and still is to this day...even if the feminist and manginas claim otherwise...men are expendable, promoting men's heath is not as important as the opposite sex and we are expected to die for them...
And if we even dare to point out the inequalities, then forget it, you support rape, you support patriarchy and your a misogynist...
OK, if we are "expected" to die for the "weaker sex", shouldn't we expect or behave as if we have a little bit more say in how thing are run, over those who benefit from it?(don't have a heart attack, I am been sarcastic)
Or should we all be treated the same? So we can think the same in supporting health for everyone... instead of bonbon pink been used as a promotion for a dead ideal? Anti male feminism....
and when we see them using a worth while cause for ratings or self promotion of an ideal, isn't that disgusting?
I offered a while back to turn my site bonbon pink next year in october, if feminists in lanark county would support movember, nothing.....then again, with a running policy like..."all men achieve power through rape and sexual harassment" on their web site, I did not expect them to take me up on it, I think I would of had a heart attack if they would have...
We support research to advance health care, for "everyone", we do not support it as a tool for ratings...or an ideal to demonize half the population...
In a parents mind, a son and a daughter have equal love, so why is society so different when it come to men and women?

Awesome!

I am surprised the feminist's are not demanding a cut of the $$$.

Of course movember will more than likely be promoted as hatred toward's women somehow.
