Why doesn't Superman always have a beard?
world war 1 established hair (and masculinity in general) with bad hygiene. the companies that used to sell pomade and moustache wax and stuff like that had to switch to selling bullshit razors and aftershave and shit. also they invented deodorant. fucking shit man. fucking.. very shit.
I've been trying to design a bearded batman but it's hard for it not to sorta mess up the look of the cowl
Beard + Shirt & Jeans Supes is one of the best things to come out of Futures End.
Beards are fucking degenerate.
>Here I'm going to recreate my pubic growth on my face so I can constantly scratch at the little bits of food and shit that get stuck in it
>If I'm super quirky I'll even wax my moustache into points so I can pretend I'm from London circa 1883
>so ebin manly ;)
How women find this attractive is mind-boggling.
>replying to bait
anyway it's the beard on the INSIDE that counts!
I'm upset at how attractive he is with the beard. I don't have any interest in the damn movies themselves, I just wanna see him and Batfleck look hot the entire time.
jesus I wanna squeeze his man-tits.
It wasn't so much bad hygiene as it was really bad idea for solders to have facial hair when you need to wear a gas mask. All of those men coming back from a war where for years they had to shave or die from a chemical attack kinda just made it a habit for alot of men after the war. Its also why tooth brush and pencil mustaches became popular until Hitler came along.
The hygiene thing has a weird history since ancient Rome had that idea that facial hair was barbaric. That idea went away when Rome collapsed and came in the 20th century. Again because it was either have a glorious beard or be able to wear a gas mask.
How ever beards have come back in the military with special forces. Navy SEALS on deployment don't shave because shaving cream, shaving razors/electric razors, and the extra water needed are just not practical to have when your spending weeks on an op and you only have so much carrying space on your person and no supply line to call on.
true, but the gas mask thing was more codified in WWII (despite so little gas actually being used. because gas warfare is such shit) in WWI it was more about everyone getting horrible lice outbreaks. at least that's the way I learned it. i mean in terms of the hair on one's head, for sure. no gasmask issues there.
what i don't get is why, after things looked like they were getting cool again in the 90s, it had to revert to cleancut-ass 50s bullshit (THAT particular hygiene scare was a reaction to terrible food quality, so nice neutered clerks at white castle meant you could trust your hambroigas werent fulla rats). you saw it just across the board, on every sitcom
>How women find this attractive is mind-boggling.
Beard's are the ultimate statement of manhood.
A thick and healthy beard gets them wet because it informs them that there is a man on had to fuck them.
Do you know why men stopped having beards? Because beards prevented a proper seal when using gas masks during the World War. Having no beard is manly as shit because it meant the man was a veteran.
Beards are what misshapen no-jaw egoraptors use to conceal their lack of facial definition
Either that or a chance for effete losers to flex their fashion muscles by properly maintaining their their pretty pretty facial follicles
I've got more respect for disgusting rednecks and hillbillies with the Bin Laden look than I do for these Seth Rogan wannabe douches who are trying desperately to conceal their double chins
>Frank will never be this hot again
Hold me, /co/.
>Beards are what misshapen no-jaw egoraptors use to conceal their lack of facial definition
What you're saying has a grain of truth to it, but I'd say you're missing the point.
It's like with fedoras: There's all these greasy kids who mistakenly believe that wearing one confers dignity where it doesn't otherwise exist. It doesn't; the dignity has to be there in the first place for the fedora to look good. Similarly, having a fat, flabby set of jowls isn't going to look good just because you have a neatly-trimmed beard over it. Your jawline has to already be strong in order for a beard to look good over it.
You're complaining about a real phenomenon, but you're putting the cart before the horse. It's not about the beard in and of itself.
this. i'm so sick of the term 'neckbeard'
your neck is SUPPOSED to have a beard. it protects it. The important thing is the beard on your neck should be, yknow, inches away from the beard on your chin. not right up against it because you have a tube-shaped chinless head. if you DO have one of those, you'll look even worse without the beard (and the chances of being able to grow one with all that estrogen is slim. as slim as the girlfriend you'll never have). we need to be calling these people neckfats regardless of their beards
funny thing is egoraptor's been working out, he's down to 1.5 chins and with his pretty nice beard the fucker is actually looking handsome as shit. he actually looks better than Danny who is aging like fucking toast on a windowsill right now.
grizzly reed is the best he's really been through some shit and looks really cool
