Movember

Face of the day

Today’s face of the day is Kevin Hague, the new co-leader of the Green Party.
I did a little research and judging by this image he is going to be as focused on Cameron as his predecessor, Russell, ‘ Who are you texting? ‘ Norman.

Feral and proud.

THE ONGOING MO’: Green Party MP Kevin Hague enlisted in Movember to help change the face of men’s health. Hague has said he’s keeping the mo for another month as he also grows a Decembeard to raise awareness of bowel cancer. – Stuff

Patrick Lee-lo already disqualified from Movember

It?s been a while since the BSC and its El Presidente Patrick Lee-Lo appeared on this blog. And with Movember coming up, old Paddy?s infamous moustache is sure to get him some attention.

Maybe that attention will also include questions, such as:

Face of the Day

Now this is?commitment?to the Movember cause:

A woman with a medical condition that causes her to sprout facial hair has joined the Movember campaign by growing a moustache and a beard.

Siobhain Fletcher, 36, is joining thousands of men across the UK by not shaving for a month to raise awareness and funds for men?s health causes.

The housewife, from Leek in Staffordshire, suffers from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) which leaves her with high levels of testosterone.

She was diagnosed 12 years ago when she husband Jim struggled to conceive after trying to start a family.

Siobhain, who usually shaves every other day, said: “If I can go out on the street with a beard or moustache for a month, then surely men who are experiencing health problems can go and get themselves tested.

“I think it is awful that some men are too embarrassed to have a simple test which could save them from prostate or testicular cancer.

Last day of Movember

Today is the last day of Movember. Tomorrow I shave.

Movember – 4 days to go

Movember is nearly over, there are just 4 days to go.

The month has been dominated by tragic news on the West Coast. Nevertheless I said I would support Movember and so continue onwards.

C**t of the Year – Michael Laws

He says now that he was joking. I don’t for a minute think this weak, pathetic individual was joking. What I find apalling is he has continued to attack people that she sees as having mental health issues, all during Movember. He undoes all the hard work people like Mike King and John Kirwan have done to get people toi understand that people with mental illness are people just like you and me, just they struggle with some aspects.

Michael Laws - C**t of the Year

Michael Laws - C**t of the Year

Michael Laws is a coward and a bully, and a coward and bully of the worst kind, picking on people who are struggling at the best of times. Of course, he could just be talking about himself given the vast amount of time he consumes inhabiting Facebook along with his little fan club of felchers.

It is also ironic that he scoffingly talks of straight-jackets and people with mental illness when he himself has written about his issues and his flirting with suicide.

have, twice, seriously considered suicide as the most rational reply to adversity.

In the first instant, it was as a lovelorn teenager in the first year of university studies and after being dumped by my then girlfriend. It was a measure of both my insecurity and my anguish that this relationship break-up prompted such self-destructive thoughts.

Having made the decision to end it all ? with as much melodrama as I could muster ? my next problem was, how? By the time I’d resolved that issue, I had discovered that a combination of testosterone and the welcoming smile of another had carried me over the abyss….

The media, for example, deliberately restricts itself from reporting any of the salient details relating to a suicidal death. Their fear ? pressed upon them by public health officials ? is that talking about suicide will provoke more copycat victims.

Nonsense. Indeed to use such logic, let’s stop talking about road deaths, mental illness, welfare dependence and criminal offending. There will, of course, be dramatic reductions in antisocial and destructive activities all because we choose to ignore them.

Because, sometimes, suicide is so damned rational and right. Or so it seems.

It certainly was when I was in the child oncology ward of Starship Children’s Hospital two years ago. When I was informed that my daughter Lucy was likely to die, my world dissolved. I could see no point to existence if she were not a part of my life.

And I also started thinking of death from the perspective of Lucy. When she dies (the “if” seemed to have been removed from the equation) then where does she go? Are the rationalists right, nowhere? Or are the Christians and popular culture on the right track to think she would walk off into the light somewhere?

All I knew is that I did not want my golden girl to walk there alone. I would have gone too: I knew that then, and I know that now.

It makes no sense, it seems, to write those words in August 2010. But they made perfect sense in February 2008. And I was a sane man.

Well, we can know that all that waffle is just bullshit, from a bullshit artist, intent only on self promotion at the expense of others. No “sane” person contemplates suicide. Even if the “insanity” is temporary, it is still insanity that one can see that a permanent solution to a temporary problem is a good idea.

It is for this reason that Michael Laws is this years C**t of the Year.

If you care more about people suffering with mental health issues then you can donate to Movember and help us ignore the Michael Laws of this world. One more word of advice for Michael, as I know he reads the blog. NFWAB.

Movember – Day 20

It is still Movember and so you guys out there can do your part to help. There are still 10 days left.

I am doing this because close to one in ten men will experience depression in their lifetime. Many of these men do not seek help.

"I could have started a blog, but that's the first sign of mental illness" – Michael Laws

Someone is touchy. Michael Laws is very touchy. He decides to label all bloggers as having a mental illness and suggests he isn’t there yet.

Well F*ck you Michael.

In the middle of Movember you decide to label bloggers as suffering from mental illness. Well welcome to the sh*t-storm that all bloggers will unleash upon you for calling us all mental.

I have always been up front about my own personal battle with Depression. I have fronted on my own demons. It is time Michael Laws started confronting his own demons, and they are considerable. It is time that bloggers and media everywhere started calling this blackmailer, bullshit artist on his crap and started outing his reprehensible bullying and predator behaviour.

There is power in speaking the truth, something Michael Laws is a stranger to.

I wonder what his fellow Radio host at Radio Live, Mike King thinks about such labels during Movember, an event that Mike King is an?ambassador?for. I wonder too what John Kirwan thinks of such comments during Movember.

Michaels Laws is a cowardly little weak man with a body like a half sucked throatie. By abusing bloggers for their mental health has just added him to my sh*t-list, a list from which no one ever gets off.

Here is a video that Michael laws would do well to heed. (WARNING: NSFW, Do not play at work)
