Why don't asian men grow facial hair?

I was reading one of the many threads on asian men being feminine, etc. and it occured to me - i hardly ever see asian men with facial hair, as opposed to almost every male white or black adult who probably has at least a little facial hair somewhere. Why is that, why do so many asian men choose to have smooth faces?

Re: Why don't asian men grow facial hair?

My grandpa had a pretty long beard for a while. My dad has had a beard for as long as I can remember. A lot of my Chinese relatives have long beards (cause they're Muslim mainly). I have a beard too...I don't know too many other Asians with beards except for Japanese guys I've seen on tv or like scraggly old Chinese people goatees or mustaches.

Re: Why don't asian men grow facial hair?

When I don't shave, then I look like a grungy college student. Which is true... I am a grungy college student.

the whole reason i started this thread is cause i couldn't think of one time i ever saw an asian man with facial hair, except for like maybe old japanese monks with long ass goatees.

Re: Why don't asian men grow facial hair?

i tihnk most chinese guys (in asia) don't grow beards cause mostly it's old men who grow them out, and criminals too. So most people don't grow them cause they wanna look younger

plus, i don't think in china facial hair is equated with masculinity, so there really isn't any positive factors in growing it out

If that is the case, then I do see the correlation. My mom used to always get on me about growing facial hair because I already look young for my age as it is, though I do have a slight goatee, she says I need a moustache.

Re: Why don't asian men grow facial hair?

well this korean guy in my dorm has a beard, not like a hardcore beard but yeah (i originally thought he was chinese for some reason, i mean he doesnt look overtly korean)

and mine is okay I guess, I mean at most I'll shave every 2 days, and if i push it maybe every 3-4 days, but by then you can feel the shag coming on, I dont think I'd look good with a beard cuz I have a boyish face so itd just be weird. body hair though thats a different story, I mean I see this hairy ass white dudes in locker rooms and I havent a single strand on my body (and minimal on my arms and stuff.)

why wouldn't facial hair be seen as masculine? i'm sure if you saw a girl with facial hair you'd think she looks manly.




oh well, different cultures i guess.............

Re: Why don't asian men grow facial hair?

Asian guys look good with goatees and some facial hair if they can grow it out fully. Some guys can't and it just looks like a scraggily mess. I don't see a buncha guys with facial hair these anyway?

Re: Why don't asian men grow facial hair?

probly a preference thing i guess, i mean take anime for instance, always clean shaven heroes

now i dont mean to presume anime is what affects it but that it simply shows a preference
