I have done extensive research in this exact subject by A. having a beard and B. not having a beard, and I can say without any hint of doubt that beard love cuts across all ethnic and social backgrounds. And my beard even grows in ginger, like I'm some sort of freak. The point is the majority of women all over the world love beards. Now if we're talking goatees, I think these studies might be valid.
Apparently there has been A LOT of research into discovering whether or not women like beards:
Women are supposed to be drawn to strong, healthy men but previous research into whether beards are attractive has produced mixed results, so scientists from New Zealand and Canada decided to conduct their own research.
It doesn't say exactly how many studies have been done on beard appreciation, but it appears to be many. Good job focusing on the important things, scientists. This is why we don't have hover boards.
Also, weird scientific theory of the day:
It is even suggested that a beard is a sign of a strong immune system. The theory goes that disease-carrying parasites thrive in body hair and so if a man can sport a beard without getting ill, he must be extra healthy
Gross. BRB, I'm going to shave.
