Kilted to Kick Cancer

Over a year ago I wrote a ranty screed (is there any other kind?) about how I felt it was unfair that prostate cancer wasn't getting the same publicity as breast cancer, and how that should be changed.

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.

Blue for boys, pink for girls. (Colon cancer's ribbon is unisex brown.)

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.
