Fiance looks best with facial hair.  Otherwise, he looks about 15 haha (he’s 22).  I love guys with facial hair, it’s just attractive to me. Of course it has to be taken care of.  At least it’s all for a good cause.

It’s called no shave November around here but yes I hate it! My ex did it and I made him shave mid month lol. My bf always has facial hair but as long as he keeps it neat I like it on him.

@MrsPanda99:  Actually, the moustache is there for a reason. It’s important, but I guess you might have to have the context to see why?

In Australia, we’ve had a bunch of fundraisers like this for ages. There’s Shave for a Cure where people shave their heads for the Leukemia Foundation every autumn, and Pink Ribbon Day for women’s cancers in late October.

Something the Cancer Council noticed after like a decade of Pink Ribbon Days was that deaths related to breast and gynaecological cancers were falling, but early detection of those cancers was rising. Basically, the pink ribbons every October reminded women to get their breasts checked, something that a lot of women are kind of not keen on doing otherwise. Seriously, who wants to have a mammogram?

By contrast, early detection and deaths due to men’s cancers had stayed the same.

So, Movember.

You see a guy with a moustache in Movember? Even if you don’t give him a dime, if you’re in the age bracket, it might just remind you to go get your prostate exam. It’s not just about the money.

I love a nice beard, so movember seems harmless and fun to me… but DH already has a beard of the length he prefers (and can’t really get much longer if he wants to stay professional at work) so he doesn’t/can’t participate. 

I prefer men who rock nice full facial hair.

I love that it aims to raise funds and awareness not only for prostate cancer but also Men’s Mental Health!

I’m not normally a fan of beards but I being in Australia there are so many Mo’s in November that I can’t help but smile!

@Stellarsays:  I would think advertising and marketing campaigns would do the same thing. Also, a lot of guys just grow facial hair and think that means they are participating…they forget that raising money is the biggest piece of the puzzle. At least that’s the case here. 

I will give whoever money for cancer research but my husband doesn’t need to look like a scrub. That’s just me.
