No Schick, Sherlock

Meryl Yourish takes a stand against facial hair:

Men have a blind spot when it comes to facial hair. They simply cannot tell when they look sexy, and when they look ridiculous.

Fond as I am of Meryl, I must point out here that she's unnecessarily circumscribing her premise: it's not just facial hair. Our blind spots are far more extensive than that.

Fortunately, no one has ever accused me of thinking myself to be sexy.

If I wanted to be sexy, it would require cutting off a lot more than my mustache and chin whiskers.
