Are beards manly?

I've noticed a few people with face fungi in Lewes recently which leads me to pose the question: why do some people need to grow beards?
Are they to hide behind or are they a sign of virility or laziness?
Also what are the ladies favourite types and why?

They're fine as long as the wearer doesn't carry his breakfast in it, particularly rancid butter.

Oh and I can't stand goaties, they look so ridiculous, and actually physically make my skin crawl. They're neither manly nor attractive, and a bit weird looking, particularly the ones just under the bottom lip with a bit of a curl. Yuk! Don't much like the shaped face hair around the jawline either.

Agree expat. And the worst are the ones people with no chins grow because they think it covers the fact that they have no chin up. If anything it emphasises it.

I can think of nothing more vain or womanly than to stand in front of a mirror with a sharpened piece of metal ( razor blade ) and scrape off what was put there naturally and expose in most cases a smug look. Come on men be manly and let it grow naturally and leave it to the women to remove facial hair.

Clifford's got it. Most people who grow beards do so to cover up what they feel are inadequate chins or jaws.
Goatees are a different matter. People grow those to look 'interesting', blissfully unaware that everyone else thinks they look like prats.

Mrs Clean refuses to allow me a beard. She says it would make her thighs sore.

Psycologists say that growing a beard is a sign that they have something to hide (besides their face !).

Beards are great however moustaches are the way forward! Not on women tho, bad look!

I can never take anyone seriously when they have a beard but no moustache, it's wrong and as daft as a comb over

pffft psycologists - they only become one to get involved in other peoples' issues to escape dealing with their own.
Beards are manly for manly men who drink manly drinks, like real ale.

Jesus would be well chuffed to read this post. Still live and let live, so carry on shaving off your manly whiskers and putting on that smelly stuff. You will have noticed that real men with beards have not replied to this post as it is beneath them to be bitchy. I am now awaiting the shaven faces response and you can bet your life they will.

I have a beard and I have replied. I have a beard because I like it, don't like shaving and the missus likes it too. I also have a dashing jawline so am not trying to hide that I don't.

1. Read "The Twits" by R. Dahl. 2. Mrs Nobacon also threatens withdrawal of conjugals should I grow a beard. 3. I once tried a goatee in the nineties, close friends started calling me "Wossy" & gaylord. It went v. quick.

I had a moustache. When I was a kid two of my ambitions were to have a moustache and to drink whisky. I don't whisky any more either.

Volvo drivers have long been associated with a pipe and cap, what about beardies. Is it different beards with different cars?
How about a survey of cars and beards that you spot on the road for a bit of fun!
Post type of beard you spot and the make/colour of car they are driving and see which one comes out on top!

I'm not a pergonaphobe but they are a bit weird at present as most young men seem to be wearing a hill billy look which I find very sinister...what are they doing with goats behind sheds that they have to hide behind a folk beard.

Just seen an old 'effigy' driving a silver Mercedes sporting a goatee beard.
I was laughing so much I was glad I was on the bus, because had I been driving I would be blinded with tears of laughter.!
