How many of u have socialist beards

I don't because I'm mid puberty. When I get older any socialist group I join will require 2 things:

1. All male members must have beards.

2. We must have at least 1 split every 3 months

I have a beard, but I'm not sure it's a socialist one- as I get older it relentlessly colonises new parts of my face and neck. Damn imperialist beard... beard beardy beardiest

I'm in the process of growing one, but I have a long way to go to reach the likes of Marx and Bakunin.

I'm currently sporting the highly fashionable 'Captain Haddock'.
However, it's there not because I am highly fashionable but because I am bone idle.

I can confirm this is true, but it's not a socialist beard, it's a hippie beard.

Guilty, people always assume I'm a hippy just because I smell like one.

If I had a penny for every time someone has tried to talk to me earnestly (in a chilled-out fashion) about some mystical nonsense, expecting a supportive response, only to be shocked at my righteous proletarian angry-science rant then I'd probably have enough money to buy a vintage male grooming kit and fashion my hippy beard into some kind of uber-trendy hipster moustache. wink

There was quite an offensive religious zealot on the BBC the other day who had a big beard. It may be a massive stereotype but why do white UK converts to islam, the extreme ones are also more often than not ginger?

Anyway he had blogged that men without beards looked like 'ladyboys' which I thought was quite offensive on a number of levels, however way you look at it really.

probably the alienation and discrimination they suffer from mainstream society pushes them towards the extremists

Not being in mid-puberty anymore, my chest hair is trying desperately to meet-up with my expertly scraggled commie beard.

FWIW, I actually thought this was quite interesting:

Actually come to think of it I think it just might be the same guy they always drag out to say something offensive.

I swear my body forgot to address the facial hair during puberty as I can't grow jack-shit. If I go 3 months without shaving I'll look like a normal man who hasn't shaved in 2 days.

That's a bold look.

Seriously, unless you're Neil deGrasse Tyson no one should be allowed to grow a mustache. Whenever I see one all I can think is, "There goes a potential child molester". A mustache and some other bit of facial hair is cool, but a lone mustache...ugh, that's like hearing a banjo in the south.

Ethos, your dislike of the moustache is probably a symptom of misplaced beard-envy. They can look fan-tash-tiche on the right face.

Many of us have beards which don't grow fast, the trick to it is just not to shave off whatever does grow... #beardtipsforbegginers

Some good advice for you there Steven wink

There is also a libcom poster, who I'll leave unnamed, who at least used to carry around a mustache comb on a chain around his neck. And if that was bad enough, it was a mustache comb shaped like a mustache! eek

Also, the work moustachioed is one of the best in the English language.

James Franco is great, but that moustache is crap. Almost as bad as Michael Cera's:

Brad Pitt's was good:

You missed out the 'ass' after the bad! The most bad-ass accessory I have every seen, apparently he rocked it at work too! Breaking the conservative dress conventions in the workplace is class-struggle in action- we, the proletariat, must take direct action to assert our flamboyance against the regimented dullness of work wear.

The maintenance burden of a moustache or other pretty shapes cut out of face hair would weigh too heavily on me. I have a beard because I don't shave very often, and that's about the extent of it!

With you on that one snipfool (and Webby from earlier)- I have a beard mainly due to a reluctance to spend my time shaving- I only trim my beard when it becomes an impediment to eating hygienically (a-la Mr Twit form Roald Dahl's- The Twits).
