Movember and Gender Equality

I am just picking upon the idea of Movember - guys don't shave during the month.

Sounds fine to me - I don't tend to shave much when the weather turns cold anyway, but it does seem a bit sexist so I thought I would add a thought to even things out.

I HAVE run this idea past one female friend and she didn't go for it, but hey this is the internet!  If there is a place for anything it is HERE, right?

So, my idea is that women don't shave or wax their arm pits or legs for the month.

Any takers?

If women want to go hairy this month, that's their choice. As it is my choice to call them all a bunch of gorillas and direct them back into the nearest jungle.

I'll pass on the no shaving, but maybe there's something else I could give up for the month. Will have to think about this!

wigsf - Tactful as usual...

Kenady - No problem!

Terri - Hair straighteners?

terri said...

Hair straighteners? Do you remember Tina Turner in that Mad Max movie? Yeah, that's my hair after blow drying. Must this be related to personal appearance? I suppose I could get used to the wild hair look...

Terri - I thought that would be going too far - girls just can't live without them can they?

Hello, I've seen you around a couple of my blog hangouts and thought I'd visit today. Nice blog, but I'm gonna keep shaving...

Hi Abby, nice to see you! I have seen you around too! Hm, I don't seem to be getting many takers do I?

Not sure if I could get away with a whole month. I tend not to shave on weekend, but I'm at the age in life where instead of looking like Crockett & Tubbs, it tends to look more like a Nicke Nolte mugshot.
