Campaigners say study that shows stubble is preferred to beards is follicly flawed
The Beard Liberation Front has said that the latest piece of Australian anti-beard ‘research’ which purports to show that women prefer stubble to beards is follicly flawed.
The campaigners say that while those producing the findings are welcome to dislike facial hair claims that all women dislike beards are about as believable as suggestions that all men love shaving.
BLF organiser Keith Flett said the research uses a very doubtful scientific premise which is essentially hetero-normative. Individual people like other individuals for all kinds of reasons as they interact with them. The beard may or may not be a part of that but it is a matter of social relationships not evolutionary biology
