If you happen to notice way more men rocking mustaches this month, don’t worry–it’s all for a good cause.
Apparently, November has been renamed Movember, the month in which men grow mustaches to show support and raise awareness for prostate cancer.
Seem strange? Yeah, I don’t quite get the connection either. Mustaches and prostates seem like a pretty arbitrary pairing, if you ask me. I mean, I get they were probably trying to go with something non-phallic to characterize men, but I hate to be the bearer of bad new: women have mustaches, too.
Nonetheless, I’m all for a good cause and prostate cancer awareness is as good as any. So gents (and ladies!), grow ’em with pride this month.
