Sorry but I find that rather revolting and think It makes a mockery of the misery of breast cancer and the need for awareness.

My Sister died of breast cancer and I really do not like that video.

I have lost many family members to heart desease and do NOT find videos or movies about heart attacks offensive. Get a life Oscar and try not to be selectively outraged.

Different folks, different strokes.

That you are not offended does not mean that it is a crime for anyone else to be offended in a similar circumstance.

Get a life JJ and try not to be selectively outraged.

It appears not to take that much to bring the worst out in some women.

I would report this ugly reply if I thought anything would be done.

Why is it almost every thread here ends up trashed with crap like this?

When I saw this reply I thought oh no, here we go again!

It seems that instead of the members being supportive of each other they go out of their way to be-little fellow members.

I was always told "If you can't say anything nice then say nothing at all."

Perhaps some of the members here should try that. It may spare FG lost of more members.

I am disappointed, as I expected more from The Gardens.

It was actually me who lowered the tone of the thread, not the garden or the members. I admit my comment was below the belt but because I did not add smilies, the jest In which I posted It could not be seen. However,:

I was not 'selectively outraged' as Jones put It. I found the video tacky and would equally find the same should It be for heart disease or any other Illness that kills.

What I do object to Is some-one telling me to get a life because I happen to have an opinion on a video on a subject that killed my sister. We are all entitled to opinions and Jonsey's comment was below the belt. Perhaps he would like to go and say that to the 3 young children she left behind?

How can that possibly be considered an offensive video? It's a cute public service announcement that shows the proper way to examine your breasts. Jesus Christ.

We are all different people with different life experiences Shrug. What is cute to you Is not to me but I would not be so heartless to tell someone who's sister had recently died of the disease to 'get a life' as Jonsey put It. I miss my sister, I miss her every day. I watch her children without a mother so my experiences may not be the same as others but we all have opinions. Mine Is just not the same of others.

I used to try and apply that in my life but, for me, it meant burying many of the opinions I have. For the most part I try to avoid hurting someone's feelings but I no longer just want to say nice things. I want to be more honest with myself and others.

Well, I think anything that might get one more woman to be conscious of the risk of Breast Cancer, and might save even one life, is worth trying.

I have several female relatives that have suffered from this disease, some fatally.

I found the video to be humorous and a bit irreverent. I know that many women might find it offensive, but it might also be the thing that gets them to be on guard.

Thank you Lars...that was the whole meaning ...the reason to share and perhaps some will see it as a reminder to check their breast and save their lives.
