Ever see athletes on TV wearing pink accessories or swinging pink bats to advance breast cancer awareness and wonder why they never demonstrate concern for men’s health issues like prostate cancer? The reason is that it would be sexist — just like Movember:
The health and education editor of the student newspaper at one of Canada’s most prestigious universities has advised the world that Movember – the month-long pledge by men to grow hair above the upper lip to support men’s health awareness – is “sexist, racist, transphobic, and misinformed.”
In his 1,120-word essay in The McGill Daily, Ralph Haddad calls “the idea of suggesting that men show solidarity with each other by growing moustaches” to raise awareness about prostate cancer and other issues “completely absurd.”
What exactly is wrong with Movember?
To begin with, he says, the concept discriminates against transgender people by linking masculinity “to secondary male characteristics, including having a prostate” and the ability to grow facial hair.
“To be completely clear, you don’t have to be a man to have a prostate, and you don’t have to have a prostate to be a man,” Haddad proclaims.
According to liberal ideology, being a man is a social construct imposed by the racist sexist homophobic transphobic patriarchy, and has no basis in biological reality, a concept that is not acknowledged to exist by moonbats.
Demands an outraged Ralph Haddad:
“How are people who do not identify with that [male/female] binary and have a prostate supposed to partake in this cause?”
As for the racist angle,
Haddad claims Movember is also racist because black males are “twice as likely to develop” prostate cancer than white males yet most people celebrating Movember are white.
Give him a break; it can’t be easy being required by your ideology to find racism in everything.
Most of all Movember is sexist, because not shaving hair is a “misogynistic tool.” But Movember is an all-around assault on political correctness, because it helps perpetuate micro-aggressions, which young Ralph defines as “interactions between people of different races, genders, sexualities, and cultures that represent small acts of non-physical violence.”
If this is any indication of what prestigious universities do to people’s minds, parents would be far better off sending their kids to trade school.
