The American political landscape is constantly evolving, and it's important to know where you stand on issues like Ben Affleck's facial hair. Previously, the actor was understood to have a beard. Now, in a new development, he does not. With changing information constantly becoming available, it's crucial to continually hone your views on important matters and to evaluate all the questions at hand. Why did he do it? Is it for a movie role? Is it more physically comfortable? Is it his version of Reese Witherspoon divorce bangs?

Affleck showed up to a movie premiere last night with the above face. Is this the new normal? Will we ever get used to it? Does it have anything to do with us and/or is it any of our business? What do you think? It might be difficult to face these questions, but it's essential to resist complacency.
