Is the Breast Cancer Awareness Slogan "Feel For Lumps, Save Your Bumps" Offensive?

That's offensive? Come on!
Cheerleaders at Gilbert High School planned to wear breast cancer awareness T-shirts that featured the slogan "Feel For Lumps, Save Your Bumps" to home football games in October.

The cheerleaders planned to wear the shirts while collecting money for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization -- a foundation setup to raise money for cancer research and treatment -- until Gilbert High Principal J. Charles Santa Cruz took a big ol' shit in the cheerleaders' cereal.

Santa Cruz thinks the slogan on the shirts is inappropriate, and has banned the cheerleaders from wearing them at football games -- which has apparently "split the community," according to the Arizona Republic's slightly exaggerated account of the fallout from Santa Cruz's decision ("divides community?" Come on -- it's not the Rodney King verdict).

The girls have improvised, though -- several of them have started selling the shirts on their own to raise money for breast cancer research. The cheerleaders reportedly have had 584 orders for shirts and have raised more than $5,600 for breast cancer research (to order a shirt of your own, send an email to saveyourbumps@yahoo.com).

If you ask us, there's nothing offensive about referring to boobs as "bumps," and Santa Cruz needs to lighten up -- it's the First Amendment for a reason, brothah. Not to mention, they're high school kids raising money for a good cause.

But we want to know what you think: is the slogan "Feel For Lumps, Save Your Bumps" offensive?

Whenever I get scared of sex, like Americans are prone to do, I realize that I began life as an orgasm. I wish everyone else could do the same.
