AIBU to not like this male trend for beards that seems to be happening.

As an aside, it also struck me as funny that while women seem to be encouraged at the moment to take on the tiresome task of trimming hair from nether regions, men are currently being let off the bother of shaving.

YABU I'm a big fancier of the beard. AND I can't be arsed to be removing hair from anywhere but armpits most of the time.
I'll have to leave dh and go find me a beardy weirdy so we can go live in hairy bliss .
My dad and all my uncles had facial hair... that must be it.

Beard wearers are perceived as "untrustworthy" and "hiding a weak chin"
The British Home Office recently submitted prejudice against beards for consideration as a form of discrimination. It is a sad but very real fact that men with beards are looked down upon in modern Western societies. A United States survey found evidence that bearded politicians receive fewer votes than their clean-shaven opponents do. The same may apply across the pond; when Frank Dobson was running for mayor of London in 2000, his strategists recommended that he shave off his beard. He refused to, and lost.

Can I ask those who like them, how do you like them to be 'styled'?
Dh is growing one now & I quite like it but he's a beard virgin so doesn't really know what to do with it to make it look nice instead of scruffy. He's trimmed it down, but does he need to shape it? How far up his neck needs to come off? Any idea?
