Both women’s and men’s health awareness is important. Finding a cure for prostate cancer is just as important as finding a cure for breast cancer and people should be aware of that. But here’s the problem: No-Shave November as the awareness campaign for men’s health, is not the way to do it. Facial hair (and I mean, thick, bushy, itchy facial hair … scruff is ok to an extent) is not always attractive. And what’s even worse is when guys who have difficulties growing facial hair try and practice no-shave November. No one likes to see patchy peach fuzz on a grown man. There’s also a movement called “Movember,” where men grow mustaches throughout the month as an alternative to No-Shave November. I’m pretty sure men are just using this month to exploit their testosterone levels in the most unattractive means possible. There are better alternatives to promoting men’s health issues. Why not take a lesson from October and breast cancer awareness? Come up with a color and just shower the whole month in it. Although overwhelming, it’s much less painful. In case you still haven’t gotten the point that No-Shave November is the worst campaign ever, here are 10 horrible facial hair disasters that ruined good looking men.
