Anti-Beard Prejudice In Modern America

112 Words1 Page
In modern America a group that faces "witch hunts" is the bearded. In New York a Hasidic Jewish Policeman lost his job for refusing to shave his beard. In his religion he isn 't exactly allowed to go clean-shaven, but yet he lost his job. Suprisingly this isn 't anything new, when Enver Hoxha was the socialist leader of Albania he banned men from growing beards, also when people came to visit the country they were forcibly shaved at the border. More recently in Turkmenistan having a goatee earns you a visit from the secret police. In my opinion anti-beard prejudice is absurd and is ruining the lives of hairy men around the world!!!
