National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month on September, 2017: Why people mad at me because i dont support Womens National Breast Cancer Awareness month?
September, 2017 is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month 2017. American Cancer Society® - Give Hope & Help Save Lives Donate to the American Cancer Society.
It maybe has something to do with the fact that, for women, Breast Cancer is a big issue. Now as has already been said, you have the right not to support it if you choose not to. And while I don't share your belief, I certainly respect it.
However, let it be said that while I DO support Women's National Breast Cancer Awareness month I have noticed that there is ALWAYS an unhealthy gender-bias in terms of cancer research. Women's cancer always gets more publicity than men's cancer. Women are always warned about the dangers of breast and cervical cancer, and there are always women-only fundraisers, yet I GUARANTEE that if there were men-only campaigns raising awareness of testicular and prostate cancer, the feminists would be up in arms!
Where do "national (fill in the blank) months" come from?
Oh who knows?! These "awareness months" are associated with very worthy causes...worthy enough I suppose for someone in the White House to declare that an entire month of the year be devoted to educating people on the subject. (i.e. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month....February is Black History month, etc. etc.) There are a lot of little things which have been declared to have their own month but few people know about it....i.e., I don't know exactly which month it is, but there is a National Potato month and a National Adopt a Pet month, etc. etc.
