Why are Women putting Weeks in their Facebook Status?

Following our last Facebook trend alert, why are women putting inches in their status, we’re bringing you another one. With October aka Breast Cancer Awareness Month right around the corner the ladies of Facebook have decided on a new game to play with male minds. The newest Facebook trend is weeks and cravings.

You may see women posting something like, “I’m 4 weeks and craving skittles” or “I’m 13 weeks and craving gummy worms”. Why are women posting weeks in their Facebook status? And why are women posting something that sounds like they’re pregnant on Facebook? Here’s the email I received about the game:

Ok pretty ladies, it’s that time of year again, in support of breast cancer awareness!! So we all remember last years game of writing your bra color as your status?…..or the way we like to have our handbag handy? Remember last year so many people took part that it made national news and, the constant updating of status reminded everyone why we’re doing this and helped raise awareness!! Do NOT tell any males what the status’ mean, keep them guessing!! And please copy and paste (in a message )this to all your female friends to see if we can make a bigger fuss this year than last year!!! I did my part… now YOUR turn ! Go on ladies…and let’s have all the males guessing! .. It’s time to confuse the men again (not that its really that hard to do :)) Everyone knows it makes their brains work wonders on what we’re talking about!! The idea is to choose the month you were born and the day you were born. Pass this on to the girls only and lets see how far it reaches around. The last one about the bra went round all over the world. So you’ll write… I’m (your birth month) weeks and I’m craving (your birth date)!!! as your status. Example: Feb 14th is: I’m 2 weeks and craving Chocolate mints!!

    I agree with Rodney. The email sent above seems so much more focused on confusing men than it does raising awareness. It seems childish to me. Do we really think men are not capable of googling what the statuses are about? That is all I had to do to find this site. There are so many more productive ways of raising awareness than putting up sneaky statuses on facebook (that we think only women understand). Raise awareness by joining a walk, wearing pink, starting your OWN walk/event in your town…. the list can go on and on if we put a little more brain power to this. My mother is a breast cancer survivor and finds these facebook statuses very offensive. She actually cancelled her facebook account because of the foolishness of these “games.” In her own words, she sees them as turning a serious cause into a joke. Putting up bra colors, or statuses that imply pregnancy does NOT raise breast cancer awareness when men don’t even know why women are posting these things. I guarantee those who don’t know what’s going on with fb status updates like this think about OTHER things when they see this crap; their first thought is not “Oh! This must be for breast cancer awareness!” Seriously, “ladies,” we are smarter than this and can come up with better ways to raise awareness.

    I worked the MPMF and was horrified to find out that one Naughty Status of the bands was in an accident. I am praying for all of you and hope you have a speedy recover. I am posting on my facebook that any one who can help with medical bills will do so.

    Both sides are on an advantage because Missing You Quotes the lenders can pay only when they are profiting or making sales and aren’t forced to pay when they’re not earning anything. As for the merchant advance payment owners Motivational Quotes they also receive regular payments that can make up for the money they gave out very easily.
