Can someone explain to me what a neckbeard is?

Is it suddenly wrong to have a beard now? Cause I like my beard . . .

I always thought a neck beard was you know a beard where you only grow it on your neck, you know, all Abe Lincoln style . However, it seems that any beard in which hair grows on any part of the neck, even if there is facial hair elsewhere, is now considered a neck beard.

It's essentially when a person doesn't take care of his beard and it starts growing on his neck.

A beard unkempt to that degree is just unattractive.

It is basically the opposite of a hipster or effeminate boy.

Neckbeard is a hairstyle. It's purposely shaving everything except the hair that grows under your jawline, the hair that grows on your neck. It's a beard on your neck.

It's ugly and it's sported by midwestern American nerds, along with the fabled Wolfshirts.

It's what happens when someone 200+ pounds grows a chin strap.

Seriously, that's it.

you don't necessarily have to have a neckbeard to be a neckbeard, it's a way of life, basically the turbonerd p&p/scifi-loving/dragoncon/ren faire attending person
