    It seems that most fat men one sees has a goatee going on--this compounds their already unfortunate bulk into something even more grotesque.

    Are they simply compensating for their lack of a chin and jawline?

    Of course. They think they're pulling a fast one on all of us.

    For sure the facial hair disguises the sagging or double chin. But something else is going on with the choice of goatee over beard. Something extra.

    I'm fat and sport a goatee myself. It scares polyamorous twigs in their skinny jeans. [​IMG]

    I thought it was more compensating that they were bald/balding.

    YES. What is it with bald guys and goatees?

    Obviously a goatee is the ultimate flavor saver!

    Why are skinny men seemingly incapable of demonstrating secondary male sexual characteristics? Too much soy? :roma:

    ^Moobs?

    Good point. Moobs on skinny men are far more distressing than moobs on heavier men.

    When I was younger and skinnier I was clean shaven. When I was fatter I had a goatee. Now that I am skinnier again, I do not.

    Not sure what this has to do with anything, but it's a data point.

    Actually, that's three data points.
