I think it's disgusting. It looks so disheveled and gives me the creeps.

I doubt it, most women seem to have long beards. I can't begin to count how many guys I've known who were made to shave their beloved beard by their partners.

From experience, women seem to prefer men to have stubble or a short well-maintained beard.

With this thread, the number of threads critical of the current beard fashion has actually exceeded the number of bearded men!

Bravo on this incredible achievement!

Not a big fan of beards but some men look very nice with a shorter, trimmed beard. I really can't understand the long, scraggly look though.

Yeah, this is probably the most unoriginal idea for a thread you can have on City Data. Everything that could be said about the matter has already been said, many times all over this these forums

This may be true, but the long bearded men I see around my neighborhood hardly seem to be alone. They are usually accompanied by hot, trendy millennial women. Often with yoga mats slung across their backs.

I suggest the yoga mat is the female equivalent of the long beard.

Some women I know personally find it sexy.

Are there other women on here who aren't into this popular bearded look these days?
I wouldn't call myself a regular on this board and even I can say, "This topic again?"

My husband has a beard but it's trimmed and looks nice. I love red hair. He doesn't have red hair but he has a red beard. Most women I know do not love scraggly, long beards.

I like well-trimmed/close cropped beards, goatees and stubble on men. Not a fan of the "Duck Dynasty" type beard though.

1) This is not a "trend". Nowhere nearly enough men are growing long full beards for it to be an actual trend

2) Beards "belong" wherever they happen to grow. That is the nature of a beard. I had never before heard the term "neckbeard" and find it a ludicrous concept.

3) As long as the beard is clean, nothing else matters. Long/short, no difference from any practical standpoint. What I can't stand is stubble. If you're talking close personal relationships involving physical content, its like sandpaper.

"Attractive" is in the eye of the beholder. I once watched a show where they put a regular blue collar type of guy through a "makeover", which included shaving his full beard and putting him in a freakin' suit.

It was not, IMNSHO, an improvement. It was also highly bigoted. Jeans and a beard on a guy who looks comfortable in them are attractive. The same guy in a suit is also attractive IF, and only if, he is also comfortable in that. And I see no reason to think a suit is superior in any way to jeans.

Being "attractive" is not only subjective, its highly variable. If you don't like beards, you don't like beards - but there's no real reason for it except some subtle or not so subtle social bias that says only sloppy, lazy, ignorant/uneducated, or criminal guys have them.
