Well, am I?~

There is just some thing weird about looking at baby-smooth-faced men, it's like looking at a big bug-shaped-head looking weird alien thing.~ There's just some thing weird about looking at a full grown adult Human male without a mane.~

This goes for shaving or even trimming really short any fur (yes Humans have fur, calling it 'hair' is simply a battle of semantics fought over pure Human arrogance and narcissism) part of the natural Human body.~

Like shaven legs some times are sexy like a slimy alien creature, but at other times they seem pedophiliac and are repulsive, that goes double for completely shaven genitals male AND female.~

I just look around all the time and wonder what the Human species would look like if they weren't so weird and unnatural looking and instead looked all natural?~

Just to be clear, what I mean by 'mane' is when they never shave and trim their hair upon their entire head and the neck, so their top-head hair and their beard fuse into one becoming a 'mane'.~

This thread isn't about shaving the Human genitals specifically, but more about how weird looking shaven faces and in general look for Humans as a whole species.~

Um, no, there isn't. I LOVE my man with a clean-shaven face. Drop dead handsome.

Um YES, IT IS!!~to me that is.~ What you probably meant to say is, "I don't think it is in my personal opinion."

You came off as trying to change my perspective instead of sharing your own.~

Interesting idea. I think I see where you are going here. As someone who has cut family and friends hair I'm always amazed at the variance in patterns (colicks, nap, or wave like elements to some hair and how some people have the v for victory pattern on neck versus say the double twister like the pattern of the roots of a tooth on the neck (as one example). Or, where hairlines begin above the forehead, straight across, or the forward 'V shaped prow' outline.

In particular, I find it funny where hair does grow on the human body and often wondered how much of it is influenced by the clothing styles or if in some instances climate, others genetic etc... Or the variety in balding patterns (front to back receding hairline, or the cranial dome starting pattern that spreads toward the front.

What the heck is the purpose for the Dr Seuss like tufts on my Big Toe and few strays on a other toes? Or the Junior High industrial Arts teacher we called 'hairy knuckles' whose back of hands were so hairy we joked he should braid the hair. The errant nose, ear, or unibrow hairs? Always get a chuckle when you come across an old man with the few very noticeable hairs in odd places. Once in college when I commuted by bus, there was an old man who had ear hairs on the rim of his ear like tufts - it reminded me of the werewolf.

It seems basic clothing patterns impact human 'fur'. This seems to occur where underwear garments are kept close and or rub the human skin. The upper arms around the deltoid muscle seem a barren spot for me. And I suspect many men have the ubiquitous no hair (or very limited hairs) growing where they consistently wear socks. So what happened there? Do eskimos have much body hair since they are covered so frequently?

As for the facial - head - neck combination i.e. "The Mane" you refer to, it would be interesting to see what patterns appear if everyone went sans conventional grooming for a short period of time just to record the patterns. It would be funny to see if any humans would, say, have a reverse nap along their spine on their backs like a Rhodesian Ridgeback dog. One nephew has a double cowlick on his head that gives him a rooster like tuft on his cranial crown and his hair lays more like a golden Labrador.

Would all women in 'natural' state have an inverted triangle for the pubic region? Or are there variations? Hmm, inquiring minds want to know

How many men have completely hairy backs, versus, say, just two rear shoulder patch grips for women to place their hands?

Personally, I shave my facial hair most everyday with an occasional day or two of growth for the face to give my skin a break or to grow a goatee in cold months for a short time. I always get better shave when I let it grow out for a day or two.

As a man, I've never shaved my legs and the hair is soft and consistent above the 'sock line' . I'd be curious if women never shaved their legs, would they always have nice soft hair on their legs? While visually it would be a shock from the conditioning of seeing nice smooth legs on a female (me like, me like) would an unshaven all natural slightly hairy leg be that offensive if we saw them more often?

I don't have that strong of visceral aesthetic to say that humans look alien due to 'fur grooming', but I will say, I recall one kid in college who was a swimmer who shaved all over for purposes of less resistance looking alien to me since he was red haired and freckly which after shaving virtually all his body hair made him look alien: fair, light colored skin dotted with orangeish - brown freckles and no hair!

I'm not a fan of facial hair but I dislike when men shave their heads. I also find the "hairless body" trend to be very strange and disturbing.

I knew a woman back in the early 90s. She shaved every bit of hair off her body, including her eyebrows. However, she had a HUGE head of bleached WHITE hair. Talk about strange looking!!!

This is obviously going to be an opinion based thread, so here is my opinion. I think it really depends on the man. Some people look great with facial hair while others do not.

We know that that hair is there for a reason, so it must belong. We were not born with a razor in our hands. Our bodies were provided with what they need, etc, etc.

Obviously the OP has 'wolf' in his user name so he is probably a wolfman or something, lolol j/k.

I find it strange looking when a man has shaved his body. I used to not prefer much body hair on men, and really, I probably still maintain that preference. My SO is covered. Do I mind? No. Absolutely not. I actually like it on him and it is fitting.

Fur is not continuous growing. It will grow for a period of time and then stop growing. It also "sheds" during certain times of the year.

Hair is continuous growing and does not shed.

Poodles have hair. German Shepherds have fur.

I don't know what kind of people you hang around with, but the ones that I am acquainted with have hair.

As for your question, I think that people should allow their hair to be mostly natural. A little trim now and then for aesthetic purposes is fine, but this shaving business is stupid. I want a man to look like a man, not a 10 year old boy.

I do agree that everyone should do whatever grooming makes them happy, but I've never liked the comparison of people who shave/wax to children. They are grown adults. Honestly, I've always thought a fully waxed guy looked more like a plucked chicken.
