Who would have thought a Breast Cancer Foundation would cause so much controversy?
Well the Keep A Breast Foundation has raised a few eyebrows.
The Keep A Breast Foundation is a non-profit organization intended to raise awareness about breast cancer.
The foundations new bracelets saying “I [Heart] Boobies’ are causing a stir in American schools who think that the bracelets are too risky.
Schools from Utah to California to Minnesota find the frank use of a slang term for breasts too spicy for the schoolyard, and have instituted all-out bans or requested individual students to remove the bands.
School authorities believe that the bands can be bad for discipline, and even be interpreted as disrespectful toward women.
Keep A Breast defended its decision to include the word “boobies,” saying that the bracelets are intended to provoke conversations on touchy subjects.
On its website, Keep A Breast says that its goal it to increase awareness of the condition among young people in order to encourage them to “develop habits that will benefit their long-term health and well-being.”
Is a bracelet really doing that much harm?
