1. What's the Big Deal?

Is someone preventing you from contributing to the cause you care about? Does the Komen charity have too good a publicity department? Prostate cancer has the second highest contribution rate on your chart - how does that figure as part of the "Feminine Primary?" Or didn't you know that? What the heck is a "Feminine Primary?"

2. It's distortion and misinformaiton


Notice it isn't a chart of funding for medical research overall. Rather, it is a charge of just a few private foundations that fund specific illnesses they have selected to make it seem like men are neglected. As most people know, the overwhelming majority of medical research funding comes from the federal government. They could look at NIH funding, for example, but that would require honesty rather than a transparent agenda. Naturally he and others who create and post such charts could donate their own money to medical research. They aren't interested in medical funding or combatting diseases, however. They think the fact women have any rights, that any research dollars are devoted to women's illness, makes them less as men. They are simply looking for scapegoats for their problems in life, and they choose the sex that gave life to them.

3. This is utter nonsense, I'm afraid.

This is not a chart of "amount spent on different diseases", it's a chart of "here is a list of a handful of specific donations, omitting all the other money spent on each of these things".

Not to mention the fact that it doesn't touch on e.g. what ages these things kill people at.

It's an appallingly misleading piece of nonsense.
