Wear Beard

I saw this sticker this morning on the bridge railing. I just looked up the website, and here's the beard manifesto (in English-they also posted it in castillian):
When you've been wearing beard for a while, the day that you finally shave it off everybody goes like "dude, you really look better, you seem younger". That's why beards are cool. That's why we all should wear beards. Because, these days, to commit oneself to such an act whose consecuences directly lead you to diminish your beauty and your so called youth is brave, really brave. And the world needs brave people. People capable of believing in their ideals, or their beards, despite everybody's opinions. Despite of the fact that everybody's opinions are similar. Despite. To this point, it's quite obvious that these words are not meant to be just a hair thing. It's a proven fact that women do exist, and that hair doesn't grow in their faces. But that's not the point. The point is that they, women, certainly do have ideals. Opinions. Beliefs that shouldn't be shaven. Because they're the reason why you think for yourself. The reason why you're unique. Because they are, after all, what you are. For that, and for the fact that it makes you look interesting, wear beard.
