‘Boobies’ Has Young Vibe

While to the older population the word "boobies" might seem insensitive or disrespectful, the word has a young vibe, making it easy for teens to relate and respond to the intended message. There is nothing wrong with high school students showing support for a cause, especially one that affects so many people. Any principal who believes a wristband with the word "boobies" on it is the worst obscenity issue within their student population is sorely mistaken and a little out of touch, whether they know it or not/Layout3, UI Argonaut.

School officials objected to the bracelet, which is meant to raise breast cancer awareness, and ordered West to wear it inside-out because they considered the bracelet's wording inappropriate.

Question: If there's such a disconnect between young and old re: the "I Love Boobies" slogan, is it an effective one for breast cancer awareness?
