I learnt a new word today: pogonotrophy. So, I decided to take it upon this new threat to society as we know it: pogon worship, a modern-day scourge.
It all started when I happened upon the Quartzy port, A Philosopher Wrote an Academic Paper on the Ethics of Growing a Beard.
Full disclosure: I only perused the article and did not pursue the submitted paper, so any commentary is not on the source—merely a reference thereto.
So, this is a nonsensical post. Je m’accuse. I am no fan of beards or the hipsters more categorically who sport them. Sure, some men look decent in beards—old, distinguished lot. I’m not talking the iconic yet ridiculous Abe Lincoln beard. Perhaps the weathered sea captain.
I’m done. Nothing to see here. Move along…
