Why Men With Beards Are Sexist



Beards are big right now. Not only are they on every hipster within a ten-block radius, but the beards themselves are gigantic. When a man is sporting a big bushy beard, he seems to exude confidence, masculinity, and strength.

Bearded men have been known for being bada**es throughout history. Another personality trait they possess is intelligence and religious commitment, like the Hasidic and the Amish (though only adult males are allowed to have them)….CONTINUE READING

The survey included prompts such as “Women are too easily offended” and “Once a woman gets a man to commit to her, she usually tries to put on a tight leash,” to measure what the researchers call hostile sexism.

The results of the study found that men with facial hair scored higher on the hostile sexism scale than men who are clean-shaven; hostile sexism was a significant predictor of facial hair status, and facial hair was more frequent among ambivalent and hostile sexists than benevolent sexists and non-sexists.

I don’t think there are any more ways to say that a lot of bearded men are sexists. Not all, obviously, but a significant number. The study also didn’t say if man buns neutralized sexism, so…
