RE: I grew a beard and this is what happened to me

Old Grey Beard wrote:

OP, all historical male figures worth respecting maintained some sort of facial hair. The exception is colonial/independence times, where facial hair briefly went out of fashion (think George Washington). You're merely experiencing what's buried in most individuals' subconscious: your beard is what makes you a real man.

Interestingly, no U.S. president since Taft (1909-1918) has had facial hair.
