Frances Bell :: Blog :: Invasion of Men with beards

October 24, 2007

Now don't get me wrong! I have nothing against men with beards - the love of my life has a beard - but I do have to point out that the front page of Emerge is in danger of being overrun by men with beards (so much more exciting if it was overrun by women with or without beards).

If you don't believe me  look here

  1. Good idea re: bearded women. I'll stop shaving for a few days...

  2. It's currently 7 beards vs 3 women...hum...I'll take those odds!

  3. I agree with Helen - the only way to beat it is to grow a beard. Let's all do it! Cool

    A group of thick bearded women would certainly add value to the emerge experience!!!!?Tongue out

  4. Just a quick note about bearded women: Smile

    In Portugal we usually use the expression Thick Bearded Women to refer to women who are educated, hard-working, courageous and sharp in their decisions and actions. In other words, someone you don’t really want to mess up with, but that you kind of look up to; Sophisticated, independent women.

    On the other hand, if you go to the interior part of the country you will also find another type of  "Thick Bearded Women". These are the countryside older women who have worked a life time from sunrise to sunset. They have raised their kids while they worked in the fields, are as tough as the city women, but they have never really bothered about their looks and some of them really do have a kind of a beard. YIKES!

  6. Sharp and decisive Josie - that makes you (by Cristina's definition) a thick bearded woman or TBW.

  7. BTW Tony, it's no good trying to hide you beard behind your hand like that ;-)

  8. Nah - just sticking it back on - how do you think I got the U&I workgroup chair?

  9. LOL! Sorry about the site swamp - it actually wasn't anything to do with the beard issue - just Elgg's somewhat bumpy syndication. Or maybe the Emerge platform got tickled by all the beardyness and sneezed.

  10. I am relieved that you had not been instructed to do so by a man with a beard.

  11. I think any man, bearded or not, who tried to tell Josie what to do would quickly be unmanned!

  12. Is having a beard now a condition of funding?
