We support Paxman’s right to grow and show. Pogonophobia is a ridiculous prejudice which has no place in this day and age. Humans grow hair. Society has always conditioned us and vice versa. (Conditioner is optional in beards, but a good shampoo now and again – especially if it is a significant growth – will work wonders for your whiskers!)
Grooming is nothing new; we all like to look out best. For too long though there has been a tendency to expect males in many roles of work to be clean shaven. We would like to see an end to this. These work roles should just have the requirement to be well groomed.
Beards; no big deal really.
