Shaving head for good cause?!?!
Can you guys help me out w/ something? I don't understand why people say "I'll shave my head if I can raise XXX dollars in donations for cancer research" (or whatever the cause is).
I got flamed recently on a different board b/c I made a joke saying that I wouldn't donate b/c I didn't want this girl to shave her head. People got really, upset. Said I was "insensitive" and all that crap. I don't get it. Why is it, that if someone w/o cancer shaves their head, that they are showing support for those that are going through chemo? I'm missing that connection.
For the record: My sister-in-law is a cancer survivor. My grandfather wasn't so lucky, and my aunt will soon be victim to this same fate. So it's not like cancer has not affected my life. I'm all for raising money for good causes, but why shave your head? Why should that encourage me to donate or donate more?
It just seems like this chick was waaaayyyyy taking herself too seriously. After awhile it was like "damn, you really think a lot of yourself".
I guess I'm ranting now....
