The term 'Beard' is used to describe a person who is being used by another person to cover something up. This can range from gay men using a girlfriend as a beard to make people think he is straight, or someone using a friend to make people think they are hanging out with them when really they are with someone else.

Cover, bamboozle, con, a fake or false front, to mislead. A minimal deception with the intent of making it easer for others to ignore that which is obvious. Not a real deception to those who would see the truth. A concept from the homosexual "Beard", carried to its true more universal usage.

Facial hair which usually grows only in men's face. A beard is one of the most essentially manly attributes; in the middle ages kings would swear oaths by their beards, and saying that a man doesn't honor the beard on his face was one of the worst insults.

Beards start growing during puberty and are, therefore, an external signal of sexual development.

Some women unfortunatelly can't appreciate the manly awesomeness of a beard, for they're influenced by the wrong mentality, propagated by Gillette, which deems men with uncut beards as impolite or careless.

Sporting a beard means you have a cool and positive attitude towards your body, your image and your individuality, but beware: if your beard is too long, you'll look ugly/stupid/like a socialist pot head. If you were stupid enough to stand your beard itching because you thought it would be cool to have a very long beard, you're a provincial fool and you deserve that women run away from you.
I like Mark's beard, he looks manly and cool.
I hate Joe's beard, he looks like a jerk with that absurdely long beard.

lit. "bear'd" ... From the Olde Englishe, meaning to become more like a bear, to be bear-like. Now a beard means facial hair in the chinnal region, sadly referring even unto hair on hipster pansy-chins.
