Re: Just came out on facebook, but not really

I know someone that did this and was confused for a moment because she was much older. I figured it was some sort of breast cancer type thing.

It's a fun way to come out but yet not come out if it's true. But according to this I'd be 11 weeks and craving twizzlers. I can't even eat those, they have gluten in them...so sad.

Re: Just came out on facebook, but not really

We haven't even told my parents yet (Tuesday when they get back from the lake) so I didn't want to start something. And yeah... didn't want any smart @$$ comments before we share our real happy news.

I borrowed this from a friend and posted it instead


I'm NOT going to fake a pregnancy, post my bra color, my shoe size, or where I keep my purse, in a vague and ineffective attempt to raise breast cancer awareness. What I WILL do is say that women who breastfeed greatly reduce the risk of breast cancer for themselves AND their child, and if anyone needs some support, help, and love in that area, you can always talk to me. Now THAT is what I call a helpful status about boobs \ ( . )( . ) / - Woman Uncensored

Hey, we have the same birthday!

I refuse to do this though, as someone who struggled with infertility for 11 years and have had a few losses it breaks my heart.

This. I thought about how this excludes women who are infertile or who have a history of loss from participating in the promotion of Breast Cancer Awareness. I know a couple of years ago, I would have taken that email a totally different way. It probably would have brought me to tears and anger. And now, I'm one of those "insensitive" people.

I agree with you completely! Not only is August Breast Cancer awareness month, it is also Infant loss awareness month. My Aynt is battling Breast cancer for the second time (and is quite ill right now) and my sister had a still born daughter on October of last year. I couldnt post this, personally. The bra thing last year made more sense.
