Breast Cancer Campaign Seen As Sexist

By Wyatt Earp | March 23, 2010

I volunteer to check Christina.

Polish feminists are slamming a breast cancer slogan, calling it sexist and inappropriate. Who knew

WARSAW – Polish feminists have objected to a hospital’s breast cancer prevention slogan which they say encourages workplace harassment, the Gazeta Wyborcza daily said on its website on Monday.

The slogan “I check the breasts of my workers on my own” was devised by a cancer hospital in the southern town of Opole and aimed at convincing employers to encourage their female workers to have their breasts checked regularly for cancer symptoms.

“This is a sexist slogan that obviously brings sexual molestation to mind,” the head of the Feminoteka foundation, Joanna Piotrowska, was quoted on the website as saying.

“This campaign treats women as objects and is not far removed from advertisements in which girls flaunt their breasts over car bonnets. I wonder if this would be equally funny if it were changed to ‘I check the penises of my workers on my own’.”

Actually yes, that would be equally funny – if not funnier.

    My guess is Joanna Piotrowska is pissed off because none of her coworkers offered to check hers.

    She’s probably one of those small boobed women who claim “more than a mouthful is a waste” which is the female equivelant of “size doesn’t matter”.

    Jim – Oh, we redefined the term.

    SiM – What man wouldn’t?

    CP – Personally, I like breasts. Small, big, whatever.

    RAPH – It was a surprise to me. Didn’t think European women were that “liberated.”

    My favorite Christina moment was as Saffron on Firefly.

    SAFFRON: “On the night of their betrothal, the wife shall open to the man as the furrow to the plow. He shall work in her again and again, ‘til she bring him to his full. And rest him then upon the sweat of her breast.”
