Jesus. Just when you thought growing body hair for charitable causes (a la "Movember") couldn't go any farther, a group of women -- including Irene McGee of The Real World: Seattle fame -- has launched "Decembeaver" -- humorously created as a month when women far and wide will forego pubic hair trimming in an effort to raise awareness for cancer.

No, really. Or at least kind of. Whether it's serious or just intended to be funny, there's a YouTube video announcing the dawning of Decembeaver.

Here's the video (which popped up on Laughing Squid):

Here's a snippet of Slate's take on Decembeaver madness and Seattle's tie to it:

Recognize the woman with the dark curly hair? (On her head, perv.) That's Irene McGee, whom you may remember from her 1999 turn on The Real World: Seattle.

One YouTube commenter says, "Ok, I found this pretty damn funny. Though I can't work out what side of the argument? you're on." I agree--and that fuzziness makes it enjoyable. By including a link to the American Cancer Society's website in the YouTube description, the video's creators are sort of encouraging charitable giving. But they're also skewering the rather narcissist Movember approach. Though that campaign has raised millions of dollars, it does so in a self-proclaiming, patting-yourself-on-the-back kind of way.

While I'll reserve complete judgement on the merits of Decembeaver, I will say - based on the number of disgruntled girlfriends that arose during Movember - at the very least it seems like fitting payback.
