Houston Women Fire Fighters Calendar

Via Mike McGuff, the women of the Houston Fire Department have gotten in on the calendar-for-charity act, something their make colleagues have been doing for awhile. Here’s what it’s all about.

Our mission is to represent the diversity, strength, and femininity of the mothers, daughters, sisters, and wives in our department while benefiting breast cancer research and assistance programs locally. Our service to the community is not limited to fighting fires or Emergency Medical Services. We are honored to support those in their fight against the second leading cause of cancer death among women. All of the participants in this calendar have a family member or close friend who have had breast cancer or have been diagnosed with the disease themselves.

Proceeds collected from the sales of the Houston Women Firefighters calendar will be presented to the Houston Affiliation of Susan G. Komen for the cure. This affiliate group supports the men and women of Houston by providing breast health education and resources to the seven county areas it services and whom lack the resources for adequate screening and treatment.

According to Hair Balls, the women will be holding a signing event for the calendar this Friday at The Drinkery on Washington Avenue. You can also order it online. I wish them all much success with this venture.

    On behalf of all the wives of the men employed by the City of Houston with HFD, I have to express my complete dismay for this blatant tasteless, offensive sexist piece of work. With Houston’s women firefighters taking off their clothes and posing as smutty sluts, expect the sexual harassment girls. How dare you striptease the department in the name of CHARITY for such a personally sensitive matter as breast cancer!! You are all a disgrace to the profession and so are all of you who encourage them. YUCK!

    And the award for timely expressed outrage goes to…….Wife!

    Wife come on down and pick up your prize. See you here in say…6 months? Is that good for you?

    I hope you like charity calendars.

    And BTW, Wife don’t you thnk it’s a bit odd to be so upset about sexism when you are posting as “Wife”. If that is your name, I do apologize, but it seems more likely that it is a role in a spousal relationship.

    Personally I think it would be better if you were more independent and identified yourself as a name, not as a role defined by it’s relationship to another.
