A hairy issue: Sailors tell the US Navy, 'We want beards'

Love it! 😎 

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Now that women in the Navy can wear ponytails, men want beards.

The Navy said last week that servicewomen could sport ponytails, lock hairstyles, or ropelike strands, and wider hair buns, reversing a policy that long forbade females from letting their hair down.

Servicemen immediately chimed in on social media, asking the Navy if they could grow beards. A sailor's Facebook post with a #WeWantBeards hashtag was shared thousands of times. https://www.wavy.com/news/military/navy/a-hairy-issue-sailors-tell-the-us-navy-we-want-beards-/1312614442

I'm still trying to wrap my head around how a pony tail looks professional.  I'm all about equality, but lately it seems equality is defined as status quo for men, civilian standards for women.

I don’t see an issue with men having a well kept beard any more than them keeping a well kept mustache. The whole face seal thing wouldn’t be an issue as long as the beard doesn’t get out of control bulky. Just my two cents there.
