Movember declared ‘sexist, racist, transphobic’..why am I not surprised?

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.”

Haddad’s complaints about Movember are many. 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.

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. Somehow, this is apparently racist.
Movember is also sexist, according to Haddad.
Haddad charges that the act of not shaving some hair “has been twisted into a misogynistic tool by its own users.
Finally, Haddad aggressively claims that “campaigns like Movember help perpetuate” micro-aggressions–which he defines as “interactions between people of different races, genders, sexualities, and cultures that represent small acts of non-physical violence.”

It was just a matter of time before some idiot would turn what is important to all, since everyone, including women have husbands, sons and fathers, into a claim that it is sexist, racist, transphobic???
It discriminates against trans????Really?
 Racist against black men?????
Amazing isn't it, there is big support for pink October, but when it comes to men's health if we support it all kind of names are thrown out there....
We have all kinds of sports figure who wear pink to support women's cancer research but men are....expendable, not important, not worth anyones time???Is that it?
It's sad that a worth while endeavour has been turned into a bad thing for political reason.
Nothing in this world is worse than some male who turned into a feminist; he cannot compete with the character of men so it makes him feel inferior and turns to the only group he thinks might accept him....
Fortunetly I was pleased to see even women where pissed at what he said...
Haddad says you don’t have to be a man to have a prostate? Tell me then, Haddad, since when have women been born with one? Are the Ovarian and Uterine Cancer ribbons "transphobic" too since only women have ovaries and a uterus? I guess if he wants to call not shaving "a misogynistic tool" he must think France is a hotbed for sexism.
