CAC Continuum: The Beard issue
Fiction Weird Science First/Personals Kitchen SyncronicitiesSatire
Hair, particularly facial hair, on humans is a touchy subject. Millions of people spend months out of their lives doing their best to eliminate or remove hair from where God really wanted it to be, but the shaver and foam people want you to believe that God is wrong and fashion is right, no matter what your mother told you.
I think naked apes look silly. I also think that focusing on what you want to remove from your exterior is kinda weird if you aren't going to spend a similar amount of time focusing on what you want to remove from your interior, particularly your mind. If people spent as much time throwing out hairy thoughts and ideas from their brains as they do cutting off or killing hairy stuff from their bodies, I think I could tolerate most of the silly cosmetic crap they torture themselves and others with. As it is, there are are lot of smooth exteriors with an uncombed soul.
