“Pits for Tits”

As if anthropomorphizing pit bulls could not get worse? How about a pit bull depicted with female breasts, wearing a pink bra in honor of pit bull awareness month (not recognized by any formal body, just plain old Nutters) and National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Our ordering is specific as 60% of proceeds of Pits for Tits goes towards pit bull rescue and only 40% to the American Cancer Society. To even use these two awareness campaigns in the same paragraph is shocking and revolting, as if they are on an even playing field?

A dog breed that kills more people than all dog breeds combined every year, herein depicted as a sex toy, is being promoted along side breast cancer, a disease that strikes down 40,000 American women each year. This insidious anthropomorphic pit bull campaign, Pits for Tits, operates on multiple levels. 1.) A pit bull depicted as a sex toy, 2.) A pit bull with female breasts wearing a pink bra, 3.) The “pit bull cause” having the same significance as a cancer that kills 40,000 women each year and 5.) Last, but not least, hijacking National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and using it to promote pit bulls.

Who are the big brains behind this sexual, anthropomorphic pit bull campaign? Lizz Whitacre and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s No Kill Advocacy Club, according to the press release. Pits for Tits is a 5K doggie run that will be held on October 3. People can pay $15 for a Pits for Tits tee-shirt whose depiction for 2015 is unknown, but in the past has used the slogan, “Bringing awareness for bullies and boobies.” Whitacre incredulously states in the release, “The causes are the same in the way that anyone can be affected.”

No, Lizz Whitacre. Owning a pit bull is a choice. Contracting breast cancer is not.

“Mutant-sitting”

This combined term was coined by the DogsBite.org community (way to to go Pit Bull Regulation Project!). The first part, “mutant,” comes from the Maul Talk Term, genetic mutant, which refers to the artificial selection of pit bulls to create successful dogfighting machines. The second part refers to the grave dangers of “dog-sitting” pit bulls, as noted by one member, “deaths and maulings are not rare” during such mutant-sittings.

“Genetic mutant”

The “mutant” term was introduced by author and animal behaviorist Alexandra Semyonova of nonlineardogs.com and picked up by blogger Craven Desires. “Genetic” is implicit in the meaning of mutant, but we’ve added it to the Maul Talk term to avoid any confusion. The Free Dictionary defines mutant as: “An individual, organism, or new genetic character arising or resulting from mutation.” Use of the term can be seen in many of Craven’s posts, for instance, 9/24/10 Weekly Frankenmauler Round Up.
