Men don’t get heart disease?
Better dead than red?
What is the alternative?? Living 20 years "extra" in a wheel chair with someone feeding you and changing your diaper?
With all the emphasis over the years on women and cancer you’d think men don’t get cancer either.
There wasn’t much national push on heart disease other than from the heart association until someone figured out that more women died of heart disease than breast cancer. Therefore, heart disease is now a disease of women.
Besides, men are just the cash cows, sperm donors, and chore doers; nothing important.
Depending on where you live, the bloods might shoot you for wearing their colors; Indianapolis in particular.
Wearing red accomplishes nothing but making Bill Ayers feel at home.
A "fight" against heart disease might begin with a re-do of the usda food pyramid, eliminating grains and dairy.
TIRED of RED this RED that...women this, women that.
No more bracelets, either.
How about a remembrance of how many MEN have DIED on the job compared to women? Hmmm? Let’s talk about equality in that regard instead of supposed salary disparity.
Of course, I'm an Aviation Ordnanceman deployed at sea.
Another feel-good, useless, look-I’m-socially-conscious display.

After 2 heart attacks - forget it.
Thanks Drew - Rock On !!
And sorry about all that hot bunking $hit......
This woman says, “Heck NO!”

I’m down with that idea!
Screw all of this stuff. I am tired of perpetual victimhood in this country.
I am surprised they didn’t ask us to put our flags at half-staff.
Around here we wear red every friday -—
For the troops
Hasn’t anyone heard of RED(Respect for Everyone Deployed)Shirt Friday. Could they have chosen any one of the other six days in the week.
More politicizing health issues. Men get heart disease too (and cancer and HPV).
Screw the corporate liberalism. I ain’t playin’.
