Furthermore, for a women... one of the first thing they notice on a man from a distance is the beard. Unfortunately today, most men don't grow a beard, and as result it subconsciously creeps out the women around them.
Seriously? As a woman, I can tell you I'm neither creeped out by men with beards, or without.
I have a beard.
At my previous job, when our receptionists were creeped out by someone they'd call me out as 'back up'. Although not part of my job I felt morally obliged to help.
Just turning up generally worked.
A guy at work says I look like an Imam and that's why people would back off.
So having a beard creeped people out.
My own grand-ma had the idea that men with facial hair could not be trusted.
However Moslems here are trying to make it sound universal because they have to justify why their own cultural norms should be accepted as 'natural'.
I love how a religion psychoanalyzes all of humanity, assuming that everyone is sex crazed and "turned on" constantly by merely looking at a member of the opposite sex.
I think some people need more work to do, and things to occupy their time and minds with.
Again it's part of Islam's abrogation of responsibility. If a woman is raped, it's her fault
