Ryan Gosling Proves New Beard Study Is Bogus

When the Daily Mail reported the latest in scientific research this morning -- the finding that women don't find beards attractive -- my immediate response was skepticism. It's not that I am a big facial-hair fan (in general, I am not), but a conclusion based on a few hundred women evaluating 19 men with and without beards just didn't seem worth that much attention. It took only a few hours before my decision to disregard this study was validated: Buzzfeed pulled together a special post in honor of International Women's Day with what turned out to be evidence. Women don't like men with beards? Oh, really?
