I fucking hate the term “neckbeard”
there I said it
because it refers to a phenomenon that occurs primarily due to weight; the existence of a “double chin” creates the illusion of a beard on the neck
I get that it is meant to reference people with beard hair below their face, not ON it, which could imply youth (as facial hair grows in on the chin and upper lip before anywhere else) but the stereotypical neckbeard is isn’t a thin 14 year old but a fat 25 year old
and that irritates me because it’s kind of body shaming, and especially fat shaming
and I’m not saying that the people this term refers to - usually asshole misogynists - deserve to be coddled, but shaming them by making fun of their weight helps no one, and actually hurts the fat community
neckbeards do not in any way require a double chin and I can prove it. behold, the one true king of neckbeards:
that’s Richard Wagner, a German composer. probably best known for “Ride of the Valkyries”. and yes, he has that ridiculous beard in multiple pictures at various points in his life, it’s not just this one.
yeah okay but this isn’t who people usually think of when you say “neckbeard”
like, when people call someone on the internet a “fedora wearing neckbeard” I don’t think they’re thinking of a seventeenth century German composer? (and not just because he’s wearing a floofy hat that is clearly much cooler than a trilby)
I’ve seen plenty of scrawny neckbeards, it’s entirely a matter of being too lazy or ignorant to properly groom a beard.
It shouldn’t be our job to police anyone’s body hair. Of any gender.
I totally agree with the above comment, You cant trash talk people who judge people for tattoos and then judge people for not having the hair on their face arranged in a way that You like when it is not your face.
Lets all laugh at GIFs and stay away from thing about others hypocritically eh?
This is what we do as writers. We take bits and pieces of our lives and begin to write around them. Names and dates and places change, and sometimes everything else changes, too, but the heart of that inspiration comes from something in our life that we held onto and wanted to change. We take our lives and try to write the happier ending, the conclusion we wanted but could never achieve, the story we wanted rather than the story we got. But because the story we write is so deeply rooted in a desire for it, we can sometimes lose ourselves in the creation, and it is only when the last period is in place, the last i dotted, the final t crossed… It is then when we have to face that the story we have created is not real. In the end, our stories are just black words on white paper. Words do not feel or breathe or live. They’re symbols, language, cold representations of human expression.
