I was talking to my father on the phone earlier today. He was telling me that he had been speaking recently to another man he knew. It had been a sad conversation with this friend of his.
This man had suddenly discovered he had serious health problems. Basically, he found out that he had prostate cancer issues.
“You know, it’s amazing,” he told me. “There is all this push in the culture here for awareness of women’s health issues. We hear about breast cancer awareness week. We hear about how we should care about female slavery in the Third World. We hear about how we should care about reproductive rights. We hear about how we should care about all things about women’s health.
