November is best known for Thanksgiving, the beginning of holiday shopping and gnarly beards. No-Shave November is a 30-day event where guys voluntarily agree not to shave.
Now, I can’t speak for every woman but I can say that a fair number of us are bewildered as to why guys do this.
Come on gentlemen, do you think we ladies find your scruffy, untamed facial hair attractive? It’s safe to say that guys would be repulsed if women refused to shave their legs for 30 days.
Men have been dedicated participants in No-Shave November. Over the years, I’ve heard various reasons for participating.
Some guys say they do it for the prizes. Others say that their long beards keep their face warm. Others say it’s an easy way to get rid of their nagging girlfriend.
I’m sure ladies could come up with equally impressive reasons to participate as well. I’m thinking it’s time that the ladies join in the fun and show the gentlemen what they’ve been missing out on.
This November, the ladies of Newman will have that opportunity.
CAB is hosting a No-Shave November competition that is open to all students. The initiation ceremony is at 7 p.m. tonight in the Georges Atrium. Both men and women are allowed to compete in the no-shaving contest.
To have a men and women’s bracket, two or more of each gender must compete. Competitors will only compete against their own gender.
There is only one rule: no shaving allowed. CAB will take pictures to show the competitors’ hair growing progress.
At the end of the month, the student body will vote to choose the winners at the finale party during lunch on Nov. 30. The winners will receive gift cards and participants will also receive a prize.
So ladies, whether you want to compete for cool prizes, be lazy shavers for a month or add that extra layer of warmth to your legs, it’s time you know that No-Shave November is fair game for you too.
Gentlemen, you have been warned.
