Bearded Brethren –
Our collective voice is needed! The time has come for beard discrimination – Beardscrimination – to end! My man Shane is working from his deep-seated beliefs that the hairs on a man’s face are not an indicator of his trustworthiness or his academic prowess.
Brigham Young University has long held the beard in contempt for unknown reasons. I even wrote about this ridiculousness in my Beard Manifesto (download here) waaaaaaay back in the year 2009.
You can do your part by promoting the movement’s website and takng part in its efforts to make the beard acceptable to the “Powers That Be” at BYU. http://www.bikeforbeards.com
It also wouldn’t hurt just to point out that the photo at the top of this post is what Brigham Young – the namesake of the beardless university looked like.
Really, BYU? What this non-Mormon is picking up is a lot of hypocrisy. Maybe it’s time for an about-face on this policy. An about-bearded-face.
