Where I like it…
“OK ladies here’s a game, like the bra color game which was a total sucess and we had men wondering for days what was with the colors and it made the News. Well this game has to do with your handbag, where we put our handbag the moment we get home for example “I like it on the couch”, “I like it on the kitchen counter”, “I like it on the dresser” well you get the idea. Just put your answer as your Status and nothing more than that and cut n paste this message and forward to all your FB female friends to their inbox. The bra game made it to the news. Let’s see how powerful we women really are!”
A little background info for any non-facebookers out there. Several months ago there was an onslaught of females updating their FB status with a single color. The intent was supposedly to share what your bra color was in an effort to raise awareness about breast cancer. The effect it had was apparently it made the news. Personally the effect it had on me was it caused me to rage. I love fb. I love social networking. I adore being able to reunite, connect and share my life with people who mean a lot to me. I detest cancer as much as we all do. Especially in light of the events during this last year. However, I despise stupid campaigns that take energy away from fighting what really matters. From actually DOING something. I get cranky about people wearing pink and thinking it’s somehow making a difference. So I was down right livid that somehow people were equating updating your fb status with a single color to fighting breast cancer. You want to really make a difference? Then donate money. Donate time. Donate energy. Real energy. Not a status update.
So now we have a new game. That’s supposedly supposed to “show how powerful we women really are”. Once again, it’s using sexual innuendos to draw attention to ourselves. Well how about this. Do you know where I like it?I like it in the voting booth. How’s that? Do you want to really show how powerful women are? Then how about you get out and vote. How about you encourage others to do the same. How about you donate your Facebook status to informing other women about issues that should matter to women. Health care, education, child care, etc. If we got out and voted as much as we update our status update, think how powerful THAT would make us.
