Do male atheists tend toward some sort of facial hair (mustache, beard, etc.) more than christians? I'm seeing a lot of facial hair in here. Or do men with facial hair respond more to this type of discussion?
I'm 28 and I might grow out my facial hair more, if when i did, I didn't look like a 17 yr old desperately desiring to be manly. I only have to shave about twice a week, and don't suffer from 5 o'clock shadow. I kind of laugh at the idea of myself having a beard, and that reminds me of when a few of my friends and I grew out mustache's as a joke once. We looked more like pedophiles then real men ;) and that was kind of the joke.
A slight majority of women I've talked to like the facial hair thing, to varying degrees. Some like the whole enchilada but most seem to just like sideburns and maybe goatee. Or the metro look with chin strap trendy thing.
Once again, Judith hit the nail on the head. Must be something in the water.
"If I were a guy I would grow out every hair I possibly could all over me, and revel in the relative lack of personal responsibility that constitutes. "
The other parts too. I've had a beard or facial hair of some sort for all of my post Army live. Except a couple of months here or there. Then I just get lazy and it starts to grow out. Then I figure it's too much trouble to rein it in again. Plus, it's environmentally friendly, not using shaving cream and disposable razors or electric razors.
Probably true about beards being tied to atheist. You never see an Orthodox Jew or Muslim going to church on Sunday. Otherwise, they would shave like other good christians. Oh, and Jesus. For that matter, doesn't god look like Santa Clause?
My husband never had a beard until he realized he was an atheist. I have no idea why that is and have never bothered to ask. I do believe his desire for one had an unlikely boost when my very christian cousin told him she hated it.
yes hair is best SPF of all time (especially having genes of the Irish/Spani nature)
besides who the fug wants to fund Gillette or whatever mega-church-connected-metrosexual pastor having corporation? I see the troops in afgahnland growing it out to blend and keep the frostbite off yet in Iraq land they always seem greenzone shaved; lame IMHO, why not grow the beards out and color them red white and blue; fk it.
I just shave my neck from time 2 time
grows right back like grass
go figure; all the fickle folks poo poo the beard thanks to the bush war propaganda.
cracks me up how it's OK for the orthodox only to grow it out; screw that, I'm a citizen I have the right to fight fear of the 'look'.
