Yes, you read that right. Bearded Villains!
Bearded Villains started in 2014 with the soul purpose of showcasing bearded men with character from all over the world, uniting people and standing up against injustice, bullying etc. A chance for us bearded men to get noticed by others, a chance for us bearded men to feel even more appreciated. Also, a chance for beard lovers around the world to experience the crop of the crop of the bearded society, the chance to look at some magnificent, powerful and amazing beards. Because that’s what it’s all about… Uniting beards!
Bearded Villains write on their website:
We are a brotherhood of elite bearded men from all over the world.
Our Brotherhood is about Respect, Loyalty to the club and support among our own fellow Bearded Villains.
And that’s exactly what I think the bearded community is about. Love, respect and humanity. A place for us to bond with each other, to make new friends and to compliment each other. That’s what Ratemybeard is about as well. The name might suggest it’s only about judging beards, but far from it. Besides reviews, giveaways and beards there is a sense of compassion, brotherhood and connecting to people. A chance for us to experience the wonderful world of beards and together strive against making the world a even better place to live.
A few months ago I got a message from Bearded Villains, on my personal Instagram account – Freeradical666 – a message I had been wanting for long, a message I wanted so bad. It was a badge, a badge of honor, a badge of acceptance and a badge of beardhood. I was finally a Bearded Villains prospect. Truly a great honor and a testament to the fact that I’m special, and yes, that’s what Bearded Villains made me feel, special. I thank you for that! UPDATE – As of now I am a full blown Bearded Villains MEMBER – Thank you all for your support!
I have this belief that that we, the bearded community, can unite in a wonderful symbiosis of mutual respect and love for everyone. A Understanding of others and that we all are different, a utopia if you will, where everyone get along and love each other. A perfect world is what we all should be striving to achieve and make happen!
