As if twinks weren't bad enough already, they've lately been trying to move in on the turf of bears, cubs, otters and other more traditionally masculine men. Yes, they are trying to grow facial hair. Suddenly, it's "in" for the boyish types to display their incomplete hirsuteness by sporting several days worth of wispy beard. (Daniel Gonzales, left, who stars in Gwen Stefani's "Cool" video is but one of many, many recent examples.)

I suppose imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but the effect is more pre-op than sexy. Really, shouldn't these testosterone-challenged kids leave secondary sex characteristics to the pros?
