Trillian Astra:   As someone with PCOS with insulin resistance, I unfortunately know that there is no cure. Only a slew of medications and very careful moderation of diet with regular exercise can help the symptoms and even then it doesn't always work.

This.  My sister has been dealing with PCOS/insulin resistance since the late 80's, when they were still calling it "Stein-Leventhall Syndrome."  As a teenager, she was not fat at all.  When she started getting into her late 20's or so, the weight started piling on, and eating right would only slow it down, not stop it.  After a while, she was like "fark it," and I can't say I blame her.  When you are still fat eating nothing but shredded bark and eggplant, you might as well go ahead and eat the goddamn twinkie.

I have some bad news for you men, too.  While women get fat and get fossilized ovaries, men who don't get fat tend to drop dead at early ages from the uncool cumulative cardiac effects.  At least that's how it played out in my mother's family.  So while I'm glad you people get some amusement out over an overweight woman with facial hair, remember that PCOS is really not that funny.

gajillion: You were done before you started. If raising money for prostate cancer research is your idea of self-important douchebaggery, then half-baked is as good as you're ever gonna get.


You want to support prostate cancer? Write a goddamned check. Posting your scraggly face for the world to see so you can get attaboy pats on the back is pretty much self-important douchebaggery no matter how you slice it.

Assimilate This: lennavan: Assimilate This: Since this is to support testicular and prostate cancer awareness, shouldn't you stop shaving your balls and ass instead?  Just asking.

No, you should go to the doctor and get checked.  That's the whole point.

Will he shave my balls and ass for me?


Sure, if you need ball/ass surgery.  But if you have ever seen the way they shave patients prepping for surgery, you would know you probably want to do it yourself.

I'm also not going to shower at all next November in support of armpit cancer research.

... and eat taco bell every day and not silence my toots in support of butthole cancer research.

Quantum Apostrophe: /And you never see skinny women with this "hormone condition"


TFA:  She also hopes to get the word out about polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a condition she lives with that has side effects of putting on weight and growing facial hair.
