. . . and I could see where you might -- only noticed a few days back that the redesign doesn't have my name next to my posts on the main page, and I have done the odd genderfuck once or twice -- this site is run by a male(-born male living as a male, albeit a kind'a femme one). The reason there are so many women posting here is because I've tried to create an environment where they feel comfortable doing so.
That, and most of them have seen photos of me giving oral sex.
Realize some people might be confused by the Breast Cancer Site button, displayed without some idiotic rant about how there isn't a Prostate Cancer Awareness Month (which, you know, there is), and isn't that sexist, and blah de blah de blah.
These would be the same folks who would complain that they couldn't have a site called Uppity-WhiteGuy.com without being accused of racism. Nonsense. It's just that you have nothing to be uppity about, and should go back to counting your money and kicking the maid.
(I'm trying to generate some heel heat here. How am I doing?)
In fact, I'm calling out male bloggers to add a link to the Breast Cancer Site for the remainder of October. Hell, I usually run way under my bandwidth limit, so I'll make it easy for you:
<center><a href="http://www.thebreastcancersite.com/"><img alt="Fund free mammograms" title="Fund free mammograms" src="http://www.uppity-negro.com/pix/tbcs2.gif" width="120" height="60" border="0" /></a><br /> <a href="http://www.thebreastcancersite.com/">October is<br /> National Breast Cancer Awareness Month</a></center>
Just paste that someplace. You'll be pulling the image from me rather than them, but don't sweat it. Or you can upload it to your own server, if you're so inclined.
Do an entry explaining what the site's about:
Your click on the "Fund Free Mammograms" button helps fund free mammograms, paid for by site sponsors and provided through the efforts of the non-profit National Breast Cancer Foundation to low-income, inner-city and minority women, whose awareness of breast cancer and opportunity for help is often limited.
And urge your visitors to click through.
Yeah, I realize there's other horrible things going on in the world, even if I'm avoiding the political entries 'round here lately, but this is something you can actually do something about instead of yakking.
Update: If you're understandably skeptical about this, Snopes has the rundown, and confirms the site's bona fides.
If you're still skeptical about Snopes after the whole Michael Moore-Bin Laden family thing, please. That was so five minutes ago.
Any other takers?
Update 10/19: Michele mentions this over at A Small Victory, demonstrating a great deal of class in doing so, as does VASpider. Also joining in, Team Murder and George and Lean Left and Jesse and The 18½ Minute Gap.
And possibly people I'm not aware of.
Anyone else is encouraged to give a shout-out in this thread. Particularly if you're linking the image here; I realize I said it was cool to do so, but figured folks would have enough netiquette to drop me an email or something. . .
Update: Yeah, I know,
center is deprecated, the HTML is a mess, but it works, and not everyone is using MT and can use the
div class="side" align="center" bit that I am. You gots improvements? Lay 'em on me.
Update: This entry seems glib, I know.
But it's a serious issue. Please keep that in mind.
