I have noticed that about 75% of men over the age of 60, and maybe younger, are sporting facial hair these days. Why? Personally, I find it to be a turn off. To me it's not clean, and I'd avoid the bristles. Are the men getting lazy and don't want to spend the time shaving, or are they hiding an ugle scar or something? I know that those same men would avoid me if I didn't carefully groom my hair and apply make-up. They'd find me plain and unappealing, but the women are expected to accept the furry face. Color me picky about the prickly face.
