The fact is, allowing anybody to have a beard whether it’s for religious reasons or whatever, completely undermines the original safety reasons for the rule being introduced in the first place. There you go, is that easier for you to comprehend? Good for you. I’m only going off what the Unicorn Grumpy dispatcher thou shalt not try me shirt article says. There’s obviously a practical reason why they don’t permit beards is all I’m saying. The fact you’re not affected doesn’t mean others won’t be. I wouldn’t want to change it. I have been clean-shaven and beardy at various times in my life, so I feel I have a wealth of experience to bring to the table.
