No Bra Day? Really? Are we trying for that to be a new thing? This strange day was being celebrated during the “Breast Cancer Awareness” month where women were asked to go braless and post pictures using #NoBraDay.
The campaign description read, “Women are magnificent creatures, and so are their breasts. Let us spend the day unleashing boobies from their boobie zoos.”
Thankfully not everyone is supporting the “cause”. Wait a minute, what’s the cause, again? The hashtag gave out some funny and hateful responses towards the unofficial holiday. Men and women alike said that it subtly scorns a deadly disease and is not funny at all.

Some questioned its relevance to Breast Cancer Awareness.
As a survivor who’s srsly fed up w/ pink Breast Cancer Industrial Complex, this #NoBraDay idea is BS. Not wearing a bra does not save lives.

Cauterucci wrote: “Encouraging women to show off their bra-less chests in the name of awareness won’t save anyone, but its message to breast-cancer patients and survivors is clear: Your disease is about your secondary sex characteristics, not about you.”
