Turkish Delight: Beardless Men!

I can’t believe I have never posted this story (from December 2017) until now.

In my defense, I have been busy fending off sexual advances from horny men, attracted to my beardless face.

An Islamic preacher in Turkey has drawn a backlash after suggesting that clean-shaven men sometimes “cannot be distinguished from women” and can cause “indecent thoughts.”

Speaking on the private religious station Fatih Medreseleri (Madrasahs) TV on Dec. 16, preacher Murat Bayaral blasted beardless men and said there is no need to receive permission from wives for a man to shave his beards.

“Men should grow beards. One of the two body parts that separate men from women is the beard,” Bayaral said.

“For example, if you see a man with long hair from afar you may think he is a woman if he does not have a beard. Because nowadays women and men dress similarly. God forbid! You could be possessed by indecent thoughts,” he added.

I would suggest Murat Bayaral needs to get out more.

He should just stay away from men without beards – just to avoid the temptation.

But who am I to judge – whatever floats your goat.
