We've got to settle something: beards.

Personally, they are not my style. I wear a 5 o'clock shadow most of the time because I don't like shaving every day. Once my face starts to get scratchy, all facial hair is gone!

I know I've brought this up before, but I didn't get too far into it.

So, let's talk about this.

I was just reading this article from The New York Daily News  that says most women HATE beards.

One woman was quoted as saying, “It is disgusting to hug and kiss a man with a beard."

Men, why are we doing this? I find it to be, pardon my language, a HUGE pain in the ass.

Is it as simple as bearded men just like beards? Security? Warmth?

The article quotes a 1993 study about how women view(ed) men with beards:

(The) study found that women who looked at men with beards believed the wearers of facial hair to have lower 'mental competence,' said the study’s author, John Krantz."

Does that study really have merit, though? It was 1993!

Let's get a fresh survey going.
