The word neckbeard, deriving from the conjoining of the words “neck” and “beard,” is a descriptor for a type of man characterized by an inflated sense of self worth and a powerful sense of entitlement, particularly to affection, subservience and sexual acts from women. The name is a reference to the poor grooming and hygiene standards typically held by such men, with the result that their facial hair is unkempt and extends down their neck. At the core, neckbeards’ inflated egos and misogynistic attitudes towards women serve as a coping mechanism for personal insecurity and a lack of self confidence. Such an attitude allows them to place the blame for their failed social interactions on others rather than undertake self examination and improvement. Neckbeards also typically have an interest in anime, hentai and waifuism, due to their stereotypical perception of Japanese women as being meek and subservient to men, and thus their idealized, non-threatening sexual partner. Fedoras are also popular among neckbeards due to their seeing themselves as sophisticated, respectable gentlemen, as opposed to the “Chads” or “assholes” they believe women normally are attracted to. Copious amounts of Mountain Dew, Doritos, video games, and a sedentary lifestyle are all additional hallmarks of the neckbeard ethos.
“Females like you only go for jocks and assholes, you never want to give nice guys like me a chance. You missed out on a gentleman, slut.”

“God, what a neckbeard. I can still smell him from here.”

Janet:
He's definitely nice, but his fedora and pony collection lead me to believe he may be a neckbeard.

Should I be concerned?

Brad: Oh, not really. He's harmless, but he might cry and make you feel guilty when you won't touch him.
