Pink Ribbon

Blue awareness ribbon for prostate cancer.

One of my pet grypes at the present is seeing NRL teams, USPGA players, and various other sportsmen repeatedly wearing pink ribbons or pink items of clothing “to raise awareness” of breast cancer, yet seldom do I see sportswomen attired in such a way. I support the concept of awareness campaigns, I recognise the danger of breast cancer (in women and men), but I think that if sports organisers and teams are going to promote such awareness campaigns, they should give due recognition to other common illnesses, and the least that should be done is to highlight health issues for both genders.
