The first of November means the beginning of Movember, every guy's great excuse strut a moustache.
The concept is simple. Mo-bros begin November 1st clean shaven. Then for 30 days, they grow their "mo" and raise awareness and funds for prostate and testicular cancer.
Mo-sistas, on the other hand, have traditionally supported their men, recruited mo-bros and attended Movember events... pretty much everything the guys do except grow.
But since it's commonly being called 'No Shave November' this year, what's to keep women from fully participating?
Carrie Keagen of VH1 tweets: "NO SHAVE NOVEMBER. Who's with me?"
Musician Jamey Jasta said, "Let those legs and pits get crazy ladies!"
Not everyone's a huge fan of it the ladies tossing the razor...
@Mind wrote: "No Shave November equals no date December."
And Diamond Adams said, 'Women you are NOT allowed to participate. That's just not cute.'
Here's what I have to say: men or women, if you or your loved one decides to get involved, I bet it'll grow on you.
Movember's Other Name "No Shave November" Lets the Ladies Grow, Too
