To both genders, what is your stance on beards? Shaved, stubble, mustache, full beard, what is preferred? Why beard, why not? Personally, I belong to the unfortunate group of people that at the age of 22 are unable to grow decent beard, so until that changes I'm stuck with a rather lame goatee. Hope that changes within the next few years, though, 'cause I'm going for a full beard. Not only because without a beard my face is rather featureless and boyish but also because I think that men should be proud to wear beards.
