The Million Man Facial Hair For Freedom Movement

In Solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington please consider supporting the Million Man Facial Hair For Freedom Movement

Here is how it works

If you don’t have a beard or other facial hair, start growing one on January 20th, Inauguration Day. That would be tomorrow, in case you have been on another planet

If you do have a beard, just keep growing it. Post a picture…

If you don’t yet have a beard, post an equivalent of your vision for your future freedom beard. Something like this…

Or this…

Also post a tagline. You might write:

#GrowYourResistance

or

#FaceUpToFascism

What happens next — we keep working, and growing and advocating until we are certain that our political norms and institutions, individual freedoms, and safeguards of equality and justice are safe from the new administration.

Each day, a look in the mirror can remind you to take action that says “not by the hair of my chinny, chin, chin” to any efforts to weaken our democracy.

The more beards the better, let’s make it a million pledged.

Maybe our whiskers become impeachment beards, maybe they don’t.

Maybe we become the Million Man Mutton Chops or the Million Man Mullets. Only time and testosterone will tell.

And maybe, just maybe, we will garner unexpected support.

When the day comes we will raise our razors together, let the hairs fall where they may and let vanity be damned!* Boys and men will you join me? Mothers, wives and women, will you tolerate those men and boys who join me?

I set my facial follicles free on November 9th, 2016

*At the request of my mother this razor requirement exempts my Uncle Walter, who started growing his beard in 1943 after escaping Nazi Germany. Other, like exemptions, are acceptable.
