Researchers note that women perceive men with beards as having “the biological and social qualities that would enhance their value as husbands” and also consider them “more potent and more active, suggesting virility as well as physical attractiveness.” Additionally, female managers considered bearded men to be more competent. Male bosses, however, did not.
^ It's a really interesting idea; I think there is indeed a disparity between the raw sexual urge to mate with the hyper-feminine or hyper-masculine (which produces 'ugly' offspring), and the more 'evolved' instinct to be attracted to mates with both traits. I think the latter is exemplified by the female idolization of stars that tend to have feminine features, e.g. Pitt, Clooney, etc, and the fact that hyper masculine men don't tend to go much farther than being in action films. For men, I think we can agree that sex with tiny petite chicks is usually awesome, but whether or not it's good for our hypothetical son to have a mom who's 4'9'' and 70lbs is another question. This is why I think the male ideal is instead the tall, lanky chick, who, despite requiring praying-mantis-like sex to get off with, tends to produce attractive offspring of both genders.
