I'm no psychologist, (and I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night) but being from that era I think I might understand. (BTW, it's not really an "era" ... it was just a coupla years ago, OK? )

Even the most open-minded person can have blindspots, and I'm willing to bet this is one of the most common in men of our age range.
One of the interesting things is that after DE wetshaving for a few months now, my face is smoother and healthier than it has been in years. When I noticed this, I said, "Huh, that's great ... and I 'deserve' it!"
Now with winter and drier air I'm noticing other parts of my body have dry skin, so I'm going to buy some body moisturizer. A few years ago I would have laughed at myself for even thinking about that.
