I explain to Alex about my participation in Movember and she states that she has never thought about participating in Movember. Many women find it difficult to know how they participate in Movember, but there are some shining examples of Mo Sistas doing excellent work (See day 20 and day 21).
However, Alex is well acquainted with Movember. Her father is participating in Movember and growing a moustache; not a “normal moustache,” but a handlebar mo’. Apparently, the moustache suits him, so in order to stand out he needs to grow an outrageous moustache! Alex’s dad is right on the mark here. A good-looking mo’ actually does not raise as much awareness because people may not be tempted to ask “what’s up with the moustache?” or “are your participating in Movember?”
So Mo Bros, the crazier the better! The moustache is your activism ribbon and prop to begin those powerful conversations about men’s health. So don’t worry if it’s not as groomed as you would like.
