Anyway, this new meme deals with your birth month and date. Each month is linked to a country. You then post "I'm going to ______ for X number of months" with the number being the date of your birth. So, I'd post, "I'm going to France for 27 months." Of course, you are supposed to keep it secret from men, and in doing so, we raise awareness for breast cancer.
This one really annoys me. Maybe because, we just came out of Pinktober, which is supposed to raise awareness. Maybe because so many women with breast cancer or who have come through breast cancer can't even begin to wrap their heads around the opportunity to travel to a foreign country for many months. We have no way to afford it. We can't even dream of taking time off work because we carefully hoard our vacation and leave days, always wondering if we will need them for further treatment. Maybe because it's so US-centric.
Here's what I wrote about it to the entire list of women (most of whom are strangers to me). I'm sure I ruffled some feathers, but I just couldn't stop myself.
