Mini-Rant

So, there’s a thing going on over at Facebook at the moment which is frustrating me somewhat. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. That’s good, we should raise awareness about these things.

But! And this is a big but, I’ve been receiving messages on Facebook saying to publish a post with a single heart, but no comment – to raise breast cancer awareness. I’m sorry, but how am I raising awareness exactly if I can’t explain what the heart is for?

This isn’t the first time this happens of course, you see it every now and then. Post a fruit/the colour of your something/whatever random thing they think of – but don’t tell anyone!

I thought we were raising awareness! To do so, you need to tell someone. Me posting a heart on my Facebook page does nothing. The whole point of raising awareness is talking about it.

Or even better, go donate to the cause.

Rant over.
