Mustaches were for 80's police officers. We are no longer in the 80's praise the lord. Mustaches are unattractive on men. Shave it off. No one wants a kiss full of nasty lip hair. If your reasoning is you are too lazy to shave your whole face, then just don't shave at all. I prefer beards to mustaches.

Mustaches were for 80's police officers.

Mustaches have always existed, and somehow, possessors of mustaches time and time again were able to acquire mates and reproduce. In the past, mustachioed people have not been considered unattractive, and perhaps were considered more attractive.


Mustaches are unattractive on men.

Facial symmetry has always been considered attractive. Mustaches, being symmetric facial hair, add to the attractiveness of a person while also masking asymmetry on the face. As for the last half of this statement, apparently they do because society itself is evidence of the falseness of this statement.

According to a zoosk study only 2% of females on the romantic social network preferred mustaches.

Reasons why the mustache is unattractive:
The mustache has a bad social standing. Most men with mustaches these days look like 70's porn stars, pedos, or wana-be hipsters.

George "pornstache" Mendez from Orange is the New Black deals drugs in trade for sexual acts. He is over all creepy.

Hitler had a mustache.

Mustaches come off sleazy and unprofessional.

I do not find any of those traits related the mustache's social standing attractive.

Con

According to a zoosk study only 2% of females on the romantic social network preferred mustaches.

A study done in 2001 by Nigel Barber showed that men who sport mustaches are considered more attractive and more successful in the marriage market. Combine this with the added symmetry of a mustache that I had previously brought up and there is indisputable evidence that mustaches are not a turn off.

I do not find any of those traits related the mustache's social standing attractive.

There are no sources here. We must look to the evidence I have provided, which has disproved the resolution.

This discrimination against mustaches must end!

People calling things that are natural 'disgusting' and 'unacceptable' are what's wrong with society.

Mustaches are quite possibly the single most disgusting things to unfortunately exist in this world. There is absolutely nothing attractive about a bushy strip of hair on a man's upper lip. I do not know who first started this "trend", but I would love to know who decided that this was socially acceptable. If I wanted to kiss a bear I would go to the zoo. I do not trust a man who has a mustache and anyone who lives with someone who has a mustache should shave it off in their sleep.
