This image represents exactly what people today have made #NoBraDay about. October 13th is #NoBraDay and it was actually established to raise awareness of BREAST CANCER and its prevalence in today’s society, as well as to drive opportunities for fund-raising to help keep the research moving (Wikipedia). However, majority of the youngins (yeah I’m an old woman, sue me) especially on social media have sexualized the #NoBraDay, using it as the perfect excuse to post pictures of themselves not wearing bras, flaunting their breasts and nipples in essence.
All well and good. I’m not here to judge anyone if it started to sound like I was. I just want to remind people what #NoBraDay is really about and that’s this:
Breast cancer has killed a lot of women (and even some men) and for those who survive and had to have their breast(s) removed but couldn’t afford plastic surgery, this is their reality.
So in all the fun millennials have made #NoBraDay about, it is my hope that we still remember what the day is really about and we pray for and send positive vibes to those fighting breast cancer and help raise funds for the research if we can.
