Recently, a Facebook friend posted a meme on her page about facial hair.
I'm not going to post the meme here 'cause it was pretty horrid and made references to facial hair being disgusting.
And I was shocked to watch how quickly so many people hopped in to say how much they hated beards and mustaches and it quickly became a mob mentality with things like "ugh, I HATE facial hair, it's gross and nasty and and and . . ." or, "Ewwwww, I would never allow my husband to have facial hair!" or "OMG, how could anyone even consider kissing someone with hair on their face?" Stuff like that.
Now, you know, I can certainly understand a person having a preference when it comes to a man's looks, but assuming that all men who choose to sport a beard or a mustache are dirty disgusting creatures kinda set my teeth on edge.
You can probably imagine why.
I've spent over 30 years with this guy, and I think he's pretty cute. Sexy as all get out, truth be told. I love the way his beard feels against my face when he gives me a kiss.
And I for sure don't see anything gross or nasty about his beard.
Fact of the matter is, I've never seen him without it.
I've watched it lose some colors over the years, but it was there the day I met him and I would be heartbroken to ever see it go.
And here's a few more guys who apparently think facial hair is an okay thing. You'll probably recognize some of them. Maybe from TV, or the movies, or maybe even on the back of the book you're reading right now.
Now, I don't know about you, but I wouldn't kick any of them out of the house simply because of the fuzziness of their faces.
Well, okay - this guy might have to go . . .
But the rest of 'em? Oh yeah, they can stick around for as long as they'd like.
So. How 'bout it Reds, facial hair - Yay or Nay??
