    Of course, because following is the list of countries where beards are not accepted:

    Wait, there aren't any. Just in JW's heads.

    If I shave my pubic hair except for the hair on my sack would a penis beard be wrong?

    If your dad doesn't have a beard, you've got two mums.

    Jehovahs Witnesses claim to follow the Bible except , where beards are concerned .

    I knew a sister who had a beard and she wasn`t told to shave it off ?

    Don't know if you were being serious. Couldn't help laughing. Btw...I pick C because a man confident in himself despite his flaws is attractive.

    I happen to think a clean, trimmed beard is sexy, but not as a compensation for baldness. A man who embraces his baldness is attractive and frankly rather sexy IMO.

    As for a man with a wig, I just feel sorry for the guy. But, no offense, please, to any gent who wears one.

    Id be inclined to be more suspect of a shaved headed man in tee shirt and jeans, than one with a neat beard.

    I know, right Spoletta?!! The beard thing has never really been connected with "rebellion," but with "intellectualism". Beard wearers are often real thinkers, someone to be drawn to imho.

    Shaved heads, on the other hand, (although not usually the case now) *do* have a recent association with violence, and right-wing nationalism or fascism.

    Yet again Watchtower can't man-up and admit the whole thing was connected to the jealousy of Rutherfruad.

    Coming in late on this discussion however, IMO the Org is delusional.

    What difference does it make where hair is located on the human body? Whether it’s on a person’s head, face, chest, arms, armpits, legs or pubic hair; It is hair!

    Who is the Org, even at local level - the elders, to determine where hair is acceptable and not? Does not the Org in their own publications depict biblical adult male characters having beards!

    I cannot for the life of me understand what the issue is.

    One elder's opinion...perhaps a Cong. BOE opinion... In other parts of the U S and certainly from what I see in the U K, perfectly acceptable these days.

    Aren't you glad the WT never goes beyond what's written in the Bible?

    I mean, the Bible clearly condemns beards at... uh.... where was that again, Brother Elder?

    Just tell them beards are sexy and you are a sexy dude hence you have a beard. End of conversation. And you could add a note that you also have armpit hair because it helps exude those pheromones.
