Two colleagues are discussing their involvement in the Movember appeal, while admiring their hirsute upper lips in the mirror above the sink.

“Very nice,” one of them observes, with perhaps a hint of irony.

“Yes, and so much less hassle than all that stuff women have to do for breast cancer,” says the other. “They run marathons; we grow moustaches…”

He leaves the rest unspoken but has said enough to leave me thinking the unthinkable.

That old boast, beloved of male blowhards everywhere – “If it was men who had kids, we’d have come up with a better way of doing it years ago.”

What if it’s true?
