I’ve worn a beard for most of the past 2 years. I often get asked why; my response is, why do you shave? Shouldn’t beardedness be the default? Beards have many virtues, such as:
1) keeping the face warm in winter
2) absorbing sweat in summer
3) concealing blemishes
4) making their wearers appear wise and pensive
5) storing morsels of food for later consumption
The main drawback of beards is that most women claim to find them unattractive. I’m not sure I buy it. As a uniquely male characteristic, beards ought to be considered sexy; you never hear men say they don’t like women with breasts. Why is the current standard of male beauty boyish and effeminate? Ladies, any comments?
That was a joke. No girls are reading this bullshit.
