The charity the WWE pushes down our throats

- Spends it's money (over $1,000,000) suing charities that use the phrase 'for the cure'
- Cut its funding to Planned Parenthood in order to appease anti-abortion Nazis
- Is apparently too good to accept charity money from a porn site (Pornhub)

Makes sense that they're in bed with a company connected to Linda McMahon. Just saying.

I think they're leaning towards a heel turn for the charity. It's all part of the plan.

Does this affect you deeply O/P?

Yeah, it sucks. But, it is what it is.

Just enjoy the wrestling...

I really don't give a shit about women and their boob cancer. Thousands of children/people are dying in poor countries in Afrika/Elsewhere, DAILY, but NOOOOOO, focus on boob cancer in one of the richest country in the world. I'm not hating on this campaign but...uhh. :/

Re: The charity the WWE pushes down our throats

Well...

I mean, as long as a cancer charity isn't giving people cancer so they can get funding I don't see what the massive deal is.

If I had £10, spent £1 stopping people from trying to take my money away by pretending to be the same as me, didn't accept money from something I didn't believe in, instead of giving £1 to someone I now give 50p to stop negativity surrounding the money i have, and still gave the other £8.50 to stop people from dying of cancer I think I would still feel pretty good about myself.

Also, why are people attacking charities? If this goes so far and the charity is stopped, or given bad press and people stop donating, who suffers?

Until private awareness organizations started raising funds for research, women's health issues were largely ignored by Big Pharma. Government research grants for women's health issues were non-existent.

Susan G. Komen has some major issues, but the group of directors that pushed to cut ties with Planned Parenthood were fired or resigned and all funding restored.

I can see by your spelling you're just a kid, so I'm not going to go on a rant.

There are multiple charities for those issues you mentioned, as well as for breast cancer. To say you don't care for one because the other doesn't get enough focus is ridiculous.

So they don't want to accept money from a site which have videos of big tits, small tits, real tits, fake tits, black tits, and white tits getting fucked, sucked, waxed, tied, or came on? Doesn't mean they have to.

I'm gonna walk right into SmackDown Hotel,

Check into room 3:16 and order a goddamn cheese platter!

Re: The charity the WWE pushes down our throats

If Pornhub wanted to contribute so badly, they could have made the donation anonymously. Since they didn't, I can only imagine they wanted to hitch on to a women's charity so they can handwave the criticism of some pornography by feminist concerns.
