Menstuff® has compiled information and books
on the issue of the Prostate. This section is an
archive of Kim Garretson's monthly poster featured
daily on our homepage. His book, Niches of
Clarity at Gunflint, is a sardonic view of the
infuriatingly awful healthcare practices and lazy
cavalier behavior by men that together give us
today's prostate cancer epidemic.
"Instead of adding to the Web's voluminous text
resources, I chose to modernize pulp fiction
magazine covers from the 30's to the 60's. (See
Why? Because I believe smiling at the absurdity of
the disease is one of many coping and healing paths
to follow," she says.
"My Requests: Women viewers: Please lead healthy
men by the ear to this page and make them look.
Healthy Men: Glance, grimace, get a PSA. Men with
Prostate Cancer: Hey, try laughing in the face of
dread. It helps." Kim can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So you're in a noisy restaurant and you
see a couple of guys start to do strange
gyrations with their trouser legs back and
forth as if they're communicating. They
may actually be spelling out words in a
new language -- Trouser Talk. And when
they are talking about having to go too
often, they may have BPH and not know it.
(Of course, the gyrations could also mean
they just 'gotta go right now'.)
