I beard my face because my jaw has seen too much radiation for safe exposure to sunlight. My lips start to burn from normal daylight in early April now


How do you grow a beard after radio?  I only have to shave half my face. 

Beards, IMHO (and anecdotal experience), are certainly not plusses in respect to attractiveness to females.
Lots of women these days in dating profiles specify that they are looking for a guy with a beard and some rule out guys without.
But then there seem to be enough that dont mind a shaved or stubbled face that I do ok.
Fashions and preferences change I guess. Im sure the pendulum will swing back again.

Black women seem to be more attracted to beards than white women. Richer white women seem to be less attracted than poor. There are exceptions to everything of course.
Thats interesting, my experience is actually the opposite!
Is there any data either way?

This thread makes me imagine a bizzaro gender-flipped world where Incels are angry women posting about how men with beards are lying to us and manipulating us with facial hair to "fake" being attractive. Except for the "nice girl" types, who'd insert themselves into men's Twitter threads to tell them they look beautiful without their beards and should shave them, regardless of whether the men like their beard or not.  :)

I had laryngeal cancer, so the main dose was from the bottom of my jawline to my collarbones. I have maybe 4 or 5 grey hairs that live below the line still. They somehow are not there at all for weeks and then appear as 1cm long whiskers all at once. As for my beard, I keep it between ½" and ⅜" with clippers every week or so.

It turns out that trying to genuinely express admiration and delight about your bizarre and twisty imagination is hard to do without sounding insulting. With that in mind, can I live in a corner of your skull? That's a fantastic idea to chew on!

It is pretty goddamn funny to think of.  Dead on.

It mite be an Atlanta thing or just a USA thing. If I go into the mall I am invisible and I get eye rolls from rich white women, If I go to Kroger (grocery store) I seem to get extra attention and smiles from African American women, The opposite is true if I shave.  No data , just my observation.  Black women seem to be into beards right now especially long ones like mine. I cant keep their hands off of it at my second gig.
