When I come across a woman with chin whiskers, some things go through my mind, " Does she just not care what others perceive of her?", "does she believe that trimming the hair will only make it regrow faster?", "lazy.?" What goes through a woman's mind when she has a lot of facial hair?

Uh...maybe she doesn't care or maybe she doesn't think they're that noticeable unless you get really close.

Why are you worried about it though? I'm sure you aren't perfect either. How are women with chin hair affecting your life?

Naturally growing hair on a man's chin = no big deal
Naturally growing hair on a woman's chin = OMG SHE'S SO LAZY AND GROSS

Come on, OP. It's hair. It grows. If a woman doesn't want to shave or pluck, then she won't. Same goes for legs, pubes, underarms, etc.

Could be her eyesight isn't what it use to be! I know that's true for me I use a magnifying mirror and still put on my reading glasses then I can see all the little hairs and pluck them out. I've also used Nair for faces it works pretty well.

I have facial hair above and below my lips now that I'm older. I can't stand it and I remove it every 3-4 weeks. I notice other women who don't bother to remove theirs and I think it is totally unattractive.

I buy a gentle acting facial hair remover from Walmart by Sally Hansen called Brush-On HAIR REMOVER (for face). It's cheap and works great. You brush it on with a brush applicator that comes in the bottle, leave it on for 5 minutes and wipe it off with a warm wash cloth. Easy and convenient.

Like the instructions say on the box: Do a small test spot on your arm to make sure you don't have a reaction.

I had some such uncharitable thoughts in my younger years, and then it happened to me in my 30's. Autoimmune diseases screw with your hormones, the stinking hair can grow faster than you imagine, and your eyes keep getting worse to boot. I still don't wear glasses, but plucking ain't as easy as it used to be.

Now I do laser because I can't live with it, but seriously, just think nice thoughts and hope you don't walk a mile in somebody else's hairy shoes one day.

I'm guessing not all women with some chin hairs know they're there. I know I've had a random hair growing out of my neck or chin and not seen it unless I'm at just the right angle with just the right light. Even as a young 20-something, I had a random chin hair growing down from under my jaw. It wasn't until my good guy friend said "Grace! What's up with the single beard hair??" Oops! That was embarrassing. Since most women don't routinely shave their face like many men do, the odd, light hair growing randomly is able to grow in peace until it's discovered. Now if you are talking about very dark hairs that are easy to spot and in a very obvious place, then I'm guessing it's just a personal preference rather than anything else.

Ok. Fair enough. But, the 2nd half of my post didn't go through. I am in a Sales role, where first appearances/impressions matter. I keep myself presentable, am clean shaven, no tattoos or features that would distract from my appearance. I guess that I kinda expect the same from other people. If a woma comes to me with a full on Abraham Lincoln beard, it is the FIRST thing that I focus on when I look at her face. That's not such a good thing when you're dealing with the public and trying to "sell yourself". Why wouldn't such a woman shave that hair?!!! I have certain expectations of other occupations as well. I find it inconsiderate and unsettling when food servers have robust beards as well.

Maybe such an archaic conservative, puritan view is your problem. I've seen this chick around my place with a banging body, enough I could probably look past her 8:00 shadow. Not everybody man or woman care to be clean shaven, or wear a monkey suit. Personally I think it's stupid ones personal appearance beyond the clothes on their back is subject to somebody else's scrutiny.

Do many ladies "come to you with full on Abraham Lincoln beards?" For some reason, I think you may be exaggerating about how often you encounter these supposed Sasquatch-women. (And it seems that you may be exaggerating the amount of hair most of them have, too.)

I've come across a few women with unsightly facial hair- some chin hair or a little mustache. But an "Abraham Lincoln" beard, never. C'mon now...That would seem to be caused by a big hormonal imbalance. It's doubtful that you run into women with such a serious hair problem as often as you seem to imply. Maybe you're just a bit too judgemental, and prone to hyperbole?
