    want an actual answer?

    not sure if its rhetorical or you're actually asking? .... well ... here it is...

    around 5 years ago it was fashionable to be in touch with your feminine side, male grooming was on the up, jeans went skinny.. things like guyliner and mandigans started being worn, men started getting their hair cut like peacocks and generally looking like a typical gay man.. but was in fact, strangely, heterosexual. the tighter and lower the tshirt and wearing beads round your neck with a nice orange fake tan and having nicely pruned eyebrows strangley pulled certain women... you'd go to a club and most of the lads literally looked homo..

    now, moving on a few years, in retaliation to this men have decided to claim back manliness. the art of manliness. and with this comes the beard wearing. we are men again. let us unite.

    i think the last time beards were this prominent was maybe the 1800's 1850's sorta era perhaps all the chaps had them..

    itll soon disappear tho.. its fucked up how everyone follows fashion tho and how it literally takes over and then its never to be seen again a year later... i work in a pub and tonight pretty much every bloke had the same beard and combed back hair combo. utter utter.

    cunts.

    A great answer. I for one am happy the sparkly gay vampire has gone out of fashion.

    To be honest gays have been rocking beards since the 70s so they have both bases covered ie bearded or beardless. My beard has been stuck on moderate for the last six months, I just can't seem to make the plunge. Plus my employers are on the stale and stuffy side so I think I'd have to suffer withering looks if I went for the full on Victorian explorer look..

    Most of these 'men' you are saying are claiming back manliness, are a bunch of muppets though. Very few of them are actually manly.

    I might be slightly jealous as even at 28 I am unable to grow a full beard... Maybe in a few years... But, even at present with my patchy stubble, it's more manly than half of these bearded ladies you have pottering about, getting various tattoos to make themselves feel tough.

    Manliness has nothing to do with full beards or tattoos. Manliness is all about drinking tacos and eating tequilas.

    you could cut the dog in small pieces, scatter it across the globe and give her a map to try and salvage her dead dog, she is a geography teacher after all
