First off, let’s be clear what the North Texas Beard Alliance isn’t – it isn’t an organization of straight women who help gay men stay in the closet. No, the North Texas Beard Alliance is a Fort Worth-based social organization for all “bearders and facial hair enthusiasts,” including men and women. They meet up regularly at Rahr & Sons Brewing Company. For times and events, check out their Facebook page or email them at TexasBeardAlliance@gmail.com.
I’ve sported a beard for most of my adult life, so this group isn’t the least bit ridiculous to me. Here are just three things that facial foliage will do for a man: 1) display his high testosterone level at a distance; 2) flatteringly disguise his fat face; and 3) give an impression of Moses-like wisdom that the wearer probably doesn’t possess. Plus, some people think beards are hot. Go North Texas Beard Alliance!
