In Tuesday’s Los Angles Times, an article appeared titled, “Breast cancer ads use lechery for good.”
As a pragmatist when it comes to the really big stuff, I think these ads will bring more attention to the cause, and that’s what we all want, right? The stats are appalling, and if one woman gets tested or one man encourages his significant other to get to get a mammogram, where’s the harm? This is a very female-centric issue, yet men are in women’s lives and should be paying just as much attention.
Sure, it’s the equivalent of a beer ad about breast cancer, but we should always be looking for the outcome, not the narrowing the path to it.
Do you find them offensive? We’d be interested in your opinion.
