Theerivs just kindly reminded me that I can use my blog as a pulpit, and that some pulpits are worth banging on. Just not too hard in the case of this one, since it’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Even if there isn’t a worldwide day (and for all I know there may be), this is a findable and, if found in time, often treatable and beatable disease that deserves exposure*.
I lost both my grandmothers to cancer, one of them to breast cancer itself. So boys, if you’re reading this, take a moment to think about boobs. — Okay, you’re done. I said you can stop now! Eh, lost em. And girls, remember to check for lumpy things and whatnot. Seriously, this stuff isn’t to be messed about with.

*What, on this topic of all topics I can’t do a little wardrobe malfunction punning? Pfft!
