  1. I think you look fine without a beard, but it would look better if you were clean shaven. Not many people can rock the stubble look well. But ya gotta go with w/e feels right for you.

    Why DID you shave anyway?

    People pretty much like a guy with a beard these days and hey now that you shaved off your beard your probably gonna get more feminin. With that said,please let this not the only thing we see of rantastero cause I’m really anticipating that season 3.

  3. I think you look fine with beard or stubble, but it’s your body. Which ties into the actual subject matter of this episode. Just like, with women, you can be an ultrafeminine “girly girl” without putting down those who don’t care much about fashion or beauty, and you can be more tomboy-like without also putting down other women. At the end of the day, do what makes you feel comfortable in your own skin. Shave, or don’t.

  4. Thank you so much for mentioning women with beards! I’ve got PCOS, it gives me a nice scruff, and I like it.

  5. I enjoy the ambiguity of looking like Kurt Cobain. A lagom amount of beard, but I enjoy it more clean-shaven than full-grown, I admit. As a feminist, looking like a stranger danger neckbeard is my least aspiration.

  6. Huh. Didn’t know people liked Ryu’s new hobo look.

  7. OMG rubbing your face with a football to make your beard grow back faster was HILARIOUS!
