Chin Strap Beards are a thin line of facial hair that runs from the portion of the scalp by the ear down along the jaw line and around to connect with the other side.
Growing a Chin Strap Beard is like cutting off one testicle in favor of the smaller of the two. That is to say that while it may be considered manly to grow facial hair, choosing to grow a Chin Strap Beard is totally fucking gay. Contrary to what a Chin Strapper may believe, no amount of gym time, nutritional supplementation, Red Bull and vodka, body spray, or steroids can hope to compensate for the damage a Chin Strap Beard can do to actual masculinity better then the proper application of a razor - or at least the growth of a decent beard.
While growing a beard may signify to others that you are an adult male, to circle one's face in a pencil line of beard growth announces to the rational thinking world, (there are still a few of us) "I am a pretentious and obnoxious asshole!"
