Bad Valentine's Marketing #6: bearded women

This one was kind of unexpected. First of all, I thought beards were back in style. Second, I was under the impression that some straight women really dig the whiskers. 

But beyond that, there's the assumption that straight men and women want their partners to be just like them. Which is absurd. You might as well show these women with penises between their pegs and ask, "would you have sex with you"? I don't personally rock a beard, but it's a matter of personal choices. I guess a razor company has an interest in making people feel disgust towards all forms of body hair. Which isn't exactly contributing anything positive to the general anxiety young people feel about their appearance these days.

Finally, there's the whole transphobia thing raising its ugly head again...
