    The beard

    Previously seen as the epitome of masculinity and wisdom, it is now often frowned upon in certain jobs and regulated through facial hair policies. In an age where many men wax their chests, moisturise, and visit tanning shops, is the lack of beards just another symptom of the emasculation of men? Whatever the answer, I think it's a shame.

    For any fellow or potentially bearded men, the beard:

    The beard

    I can't even grow a beard, I end up looking like Keanu Reeves:

All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    Beards can continue to develop through the 30s and 40s, and sometimes beyond. Genes permitting, even Keanu could possibly have better coverage in a few more years.

    I don't know if I can even grow a beard my stubble only goes to a certain length, I can't handle the itchyness and I look like a mong. Another thing is it doesn't make me look older which I wouldn't mind, I went to the cinema with a stubbly face and got away with a teen ticket, I'm 23 ffs lol.

    my brother can grow a beard in a pretty short time, those genes must of skipped me

    Lmao . Yeah there is definitely a transitional phase where it all gets a bit mucky and itchy, I hate it
    I'm 23 as well and part of the reason I keep a beard is that it makes me look my age. I had some new housemates last year when I was 22 and they thought I was 18 >

    Excellent. If this thread has convinced even one person to keep or grow their beard, then I consider it a success.

    If you're 23 you potentially have decades for your beard to develop, and there are many different styles to suit varying levels of coverage. The itchiness phase does pass after a few weeks and it can look rather untidy during the growing phase, but that does pass too.

    I feel you... when I shave people mistake me for 17-18 and I'm 28. Very annoying.

    The irony of this thread is I shaved my beard this week, all of it. I look like a goddamn little boy. My manhood is gone, my self-confidence, non-existent. I just wanted to start over fresh, so it could grow out equally. It would look nice, they said. It would get the ladies, they said.
