I later found out this was ironic timing on my part, because September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, and said ranty screed was published on September 1, 2011.

So now that I am a bit more clued-in to things this year, it also turns out that every September, many bloggers wear kilts all month long in order to raise not just awareness, but also funds, for prostate cancer research. This is known as Kilted to Kick Cancer.
Now since I'm not a boy, I can't wear a proper kilt (and no one would notice anyway), but I can throw my wholehearted support behind those lads who are, and I encourage you to do so as well.
