Here's the thinking behind the campaign: It's unusual enough for men to wear nail polish (especially on just one finger) that people will ask them about it. But that concept has one big flaw: Plenty of men paint their nails because they want to—and that's not an invitation to start asking them questions.

Still, the campaign deserves praise for spreading awareness about an all-too-common issue. Plus, participants are encouraged to donate, and so far Polished Man has raised over $250,000 to fund recovery programs for affected children. –
