School Bans 13 Year Old From Growing Stache For Movember
Gus Hooker is trying to grow a stach for Movember not only because its for a great cause and his Grandfather has cancer, but also because he is 13 and has the rare ability to grow a mustache.
Movember is a month long initiative to grow out a mustache to benefit and raise awareness for men's cancer research. It runs all November long and one boy is trying to grow his mustache out because his Grandfather has cancer.
Priory Academy, where Gus goes to school has now banned him from growing out his mustache because it's not fair to his other classmates who can't grow one. That's like trying to tell a 13 year old girl who is fully developed she has to wear sports bras non stop because she is out growing the other girls.
Hooker says he has been shaving his mustache since he was 9 years old. He says the school is missing out by not letting him grow his stache “It’s a shame because my mustache would’ve raised a lot of money,” he said. “Everyone wanted me to go for it.”
Is this fair? Did you have classmates when you were young that could grow facial hair? I think this is ridiculous so I'm giving the kids school our Nincompoop in the News.
