I'm going to share with you something I've already lost my marbles about on Facebook.
(Actual image from the site! I didn't make it up!)
You know "Movember"? Is that big everywhere, or only in Ottawa? It's a thing that happens in November, people grow mustaches to raise money/awareness of men's cancers. It seems like it's pretty successful, but my perception of that could be totally skewed by the fact that pretty much every dude who voted NDP participated in Movember last year, after Jack revealed that he has prostate cancer.
So, I guess folks have been trying to think of what the equivalent campaign would be for women? And tehy came up with JULYNA.
A few things that drive me crazy about Julya are!
1. It's not public!!! That is like a major part of why Movember works!
2. It's yet another example of how woman can help cure cancer by shopping. July is has partner salons all over the place you can go to and spend 60 bucks getting one of these designs (you're gonna wanna click on that), PART OF WHICH will be donated to the cause. Barf.
3. JULYNA. You know, like VAGINA. Which is the word we now use (THANK YOU STUPID EVE ENSLER) to refer to every part of the female reproductive system gaaaaaah.
4. The copywriting on the website. It is not to be believed. Check it out (with bonus graphics of some of the suggested designs!):
THE DAVID SUZUKI. Nothing says protecting public climate, reconnecting with nature and building community like the David Suzuki style. If you’re looking for a way to offset your carbon footprint, this is not it. But this guilt free, low maintenance style conserves grooming energy by teetering on the verge of being au natural.
THE BARBARA BUSH. Barbara Pierce Bush (born June 8, 1925) is the wife of the 41st President of the United States George H. W. Bush, and served as First Lady of the United States from 1989 to 1993. She is the mother of the 43rd President George W. Bush and of the 43rd Governor of Florida Jeb Bush. No one knows how she styles her pubic hair but I’m assuming that she is too busy to trim.
