Beards are stupid.

Discuss.

They just look good on so few people.

And so few people pick convincing beards.

It's both aesthetic and conceptual.

I think they're just plain ugly.

And the guys wearing them nowadays, it's like, UGH this isn't the 1830s people! You're not being ironic and cool. You're being a jerk and belong to an unappealing style tribe.

Just this week I was having lunch at Santi's, and the stupidest couple in the world walked in.
She was dressed like an Olson Triplet, and he was wearing a green jacket and yellow pants and had A HANDLEBAR MOUSTACHE.

Poseurs.

Nothing to do with beards, but the mustache--Brad Pitt is stupid.

I feel deeply disliked *sniff* and so does the face attached to it

You should feel deeply liked!

Yes, but you, mercifully, do not have that 'I'm just waiting to model for American Apparel' thing going on.

Nor am I feeling any connection with (gack) Bear Culture.

What I see in your user icon is completely reasonable.

Actually, do you know what got me started on this?

Neither your beard, nor your (very attractive, btw) face is anything like that.

They opened an American Apparel shop in melbourne early this year - I have to say, the look, style, and quality is completely off from what we get in australia - its plain, boring, overly priced shit - very disappointed esp. with all the hype I heard about the place and its products.

The default subculture of "bear" really does turn me off... fat hairy guys trying to get fatter - even worse when there out and about on drugs - the scene ones are just as bitchy as your 21 year old waif and more in your face than a fat dyke trying to pretend she's eminem

thankyou

All I could think of when I saw that link was blackbook quotes, so here goes,

Bernard: [To Manny] You know what you are? You're a beard with an idiot hanging off it.
-
Manny: You think I should wash my beard?
Bernard: Yes, I think you should wash it. Then you should shave it off, nail it to a frisbee, and fling it over a rainbow.
-
Bernard: The only thing that will bring me peace is a beard seeking missile
-
Bernard: Dont get judgy with me mean the merciless
-
MANNY: What kind of world is it where you can't leave ur front door open without bein burgled?
BERNARD: its this world Gandalf


Thats just a few... there are more gems through the series (I just couldn't find a site that listed them easy to rip em off)... anyhow... just because you CAN grow facial hair, doesn't mean you SHOULD. And... Facial hair won't make you look older, wiser or cooler, esp. if under it all your bound to be stuck in your parents basement playing WOW all day long. Lastly - I don't know to many women who like to kiss or be licked out by goats, yes thats what it would feel like - so either find some zoophiac freak of a girl/boy or shave it before I shove it in a vice and punch your head till its disconnected to your head....

that last one was a bit violent... but you say it, not in fact do it. Its like that movie quote - "I'm gonna rip out your eyes and make love to your skull" you really couldn't see someone do it even on screen (the rates would be R+ and none of the cinema's would should it)

And, thankyou again! *blush*

I attempted to grow one this week. It's a no goer, with small bare patches on the cheeks and spartan areas where the follicles just aren't close enough together. It all came off again back down to stubble last night.

So for me, beards are difficult. I do fine 'em attractive on a lot of men though.

Like I said to someone else, it might be a cultural / Style Tribe thing.

It seems round here it's either twentysomething hipsters, to which I'm highly allergic, or it's the worst examples of Bear Culture, which, ditto.

Also... in Charleston? Keep in mind the weather here is downright Singaporean, making beards seem eccentric or just... illogical.
