Despite claims that beards are  “over” or that they simply “aren’t cool anymore,” the fuzzy face remains popular with British men - and there are hidden benefits.

Not only have beards been scientifically proven to make men more attractive, research has unveiled that the grizzly beards boast a big health benefit too.

Beards can protect you from 90-95 per cent of harmful UV rays with a UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) of up to 21, a study by professors at The University of Queensland has previously revealed, and experts have backed up the findings to  The Independent.

Maybe she was bored or just enjoyed your company/conversation? You seem to be reading a lot into this. And just because she doesn t have a boyfriend doesn t mean she doesn t get hit on or have opportunities. some women, especially younger women, actually *gasp* prefer being single. I used to work in shops and bars and chatting to people is part of the role, as well as a welcome break from what can be a fairly monotonous job. I certainly didn t fancy all the men I chatted to lol!

Judging from your pic, I would have read u as a bio guy. I thought t was the answer to my problem, but I don t seem to pass as well as I thought I would after 11 months on t. I had so many expectations of the changes in the first year. Unrealistic expectations I guess. As for obtaining testosterone, maybe you can find a lbgt clinic that has a sliding scale. I go to Howard brown clinic in Chicago and I get charged 30 bucks for t and the syringes. If you live anywhere close to chicago, I suggest you check it out. Many transpeople for the great lakes area go to hb for hrt. I am in mid transition and in a relationship. We ve been dating since my 10th month on testosterone. She knows I m trans and she s comfortable with it. There are women that will be by your side, you just gotta go out there and look for them. If that doesn t work. Place an ad in the personal section, try online dating, visit websites such as There is a dating database there for transguys too.

Cate Blanchett interview: 'I found new empathy for men with beards'

Petra Haak-Bloem, a specialist at Erfocentrum, a Dutch information centre for genetics, revealed that a person’s hair colour isn’t dependent on one single gene.

“That allows for lots of possibilities, one of which is that the colour of your head hair differs from the colour of your armpit hair, pubes, or beard.”

As well as inheriting hair colour from their parents, people can also share the same shade as their grandparents or even older ancestors.

What is the point of a beard, evolutionarily speaking? Children, women, and a whole bunch of men manage just fine without one. But take a walk down some streets these days and you’ll be confronted with all sizes and shapes of groomed (and less groomed) facial hair—from designer stubble to waxed moustaches and hipster beards.

When we see men paying attention to their appearance, it’s easy to assume that they’re just angling for partners. But our research on beards and voices shows that beards probably evolved at least partly to help men boost their standing among other men.

Compared to males and females of many other primates, men and women on average look very different from each other—partly thanks to men’s facial hair. And when we see differences between males and females, the explanation often boils down to evolution through sexual selection —the process that favours traits that boost mating opportunities.

I n one segment of Julian Rosefeldt’s art film, Manifesto, Cate Blanchett plays a soignée mourner at a funeral. She stands at a lectern and addresses the small crowd gathered around the grave. On the verge of tears, her porcelain face barely moving from pain, she says: “From now on we want to s--- in different colours”.

The line is from a dadaist manifesto written by Tristan Tzara in 1916 – a radical call to artful arms and a funeral reading fit perhaps only for Tzara himself. But the dissonance between content and setting does nothing to diminish Blanchett’s mesmerising performance. It feels, instead, like a bleak incitement to revolution (“We see everything. We love nothing,” she continues, nihilistically).

In other parts of Manifesto Blanchett plays different characters, crying out in a variety of ways. “I am for an art that is smoked like a cigarette,” says a suburban American mother as.
