I got talked into participating in ‘Movember’ this year, and as I scratch my lip, I find myself wondering - are any of my SDMB friends growing a moustache this year? This is as amusing a place as any to show photos of your new facial hair.
No. When it first became popular I was in college and often already had a full beard because I was in plays. Now that I’m no longer in college, I prefer myself cleanshaven and not facially beholden to anyone. As far as awareness goes, it seems like most people consider it a month long “Change your fb pic to a pokemon to raise awareness for child abuse”. I would rather just donate money to a health organization and not grow a mustache.
And if people are using it as a real health initiative, that’s great, and I totally support that! I just saw a lot of people grow mustaches for November, shave them off, and pat themselves on the back for a job well done which soured me a little bit.
