Thoughts on Beards
Wanted to talk to you about our official stance on beards and of course naturally we are pro beards and we think beards are quite awesome, but a little bit deeper than that, we don’t think a man should be defined by their beard, only enhanced by their beard.
Yes a beard is something that is natural to men and I would encourage anyone to grow it out if they want to, but ultimately wearing a beard is up to the individual man’s preference on their style and what they want to do.
There’s a lot of talk going on out there where other bearded men are pressuring beardless men to grow a beard because it makes them more manly.
And that’s not true, you’re a man regardless if you have a beard or not,and your style is your own. So you define what you want to do with your look.
And don’t let all these other people tell you, you know, you’re only a man if you grow a beard because the reverse pressures that society has, or excuse me, the pressures that societies have put on us to be beardless and completely shaven, we don’t want to turn around and do the same thing to the people who choose not to have a beard and pressure them into growing a beard and call them names and call them pussies and things like that.
That’s just really not the way to do it, but beyond that man, growing a beard’s great.
