One of the lesser-known Mayan prophecies for the 2000s is the morphing of November into Movember. But it’s really quite clear from this calendar glyph:
A lot of ladies hate the ‘staches, but like my sister said the other day, men wear pink everything in support of breast cancer, so suck it up and stop complaining about the perv factor.
Why is a little bit of facial hair so polarizing? Well, as Ladylike says, hair is a form of self-expression – one of the few parts on our body we have some modicum of control over – I say that because in my current, growing-out hair phase, I look pretty much exactly like this guy:
Sigh. It’s the classic “women with straight hair wish they had curls, and women with curls wish their hair was straight” except there’s no way this lady, rocking this ‘do wishes she had my hair helmet.
And the rest of the year, we can cheat our hairdos into new shapes and styles with all sorts of accessories like faux bangs
There’s no way a dude who can’t grow a respectable ‘stache could stick on a falsie for 30 days and get away with it.
So embrace the mustache, the hair you have and the hair accessories you can work with. If you haven’t already, sponsor a fella growing a mo’. My money’s on the fine fellas of Team Ubisoft Toronto.
And let’s all be grateful no one’s hijacked January as the cause month for men with mullets.
