When Jason Momoa shaves, people take notice. The Aquaman actor recently shaved his beard to raise awareness on the importance of recycling aluminum. And spoiler: his chin is just as chiseled as we all thought it would be.

Normally, changing facial hair would be the very least someone could do to raise awareness for a cause. (Wasn’t No-shave November supposed to help out cancer research in some way?) But people are freaking out about finally being able to see Momoa’s chin, so shaving is the best way he could have raised awareness for recycling. Everyone noticed. We’re all listening now.

75% of aluminum is still in circulation even though 100% of it is recyclable, as Momoa explained in the video. “You drink the can and in about 60 days, it’ll be back. 100 percent. Infinitely recyclable,” he said.

Twitter was not happy about the change.But you guys, it’s better to mourn Momoa’s beard than it is to mourn the planet.


Momoa posted a video of the shave heard round the world on You Tube.

"Goodbye DROGO, AQUAMAN, DECLAN, BABA! I'm shaving this beast off, it's time to make a change," Momoa wrote in the video’s caption. "A change for the better...for my kids, for your kids, the world."Hey, if you want to see change, you gotta make a change."

This marks the first time Momoa has shaved since 2012, so obviously this is a significant moment in history. RIP Aquaman’s beard hair.

In the video, Momoa can be seen taking buzzers to his iconic beard while delivering an important message about the environment in the desert. This is pretty much porn for people who love sensitive men but hate beards.

“I just want to do this to bring awareness because plastics are killing our planet and I think we have a solution,”Momoa said. “I don’t want to bitch about it [but] there’s only one thing that will really help our planet and save our planet — as long as we recycle — and that’s aluminum.”

Personally, I hate beards, so Jason Momoa shaving and saving the planet is a win-win all around for me. This is for the best. Really, it is.

Earlier this month, a beluga whale caught the world's attention by playing fetch with a rugby ball thrown by South African researchers off the waters of Norway.

The adorable video has been watched over 20 million times, promoting people across the globe to wonder how the whale became so comfortable around humans.

It's believed that the whale, known as Hvaldimir, was at some point, trained by the Russian military and was either released or escaped.

Your first period is always a weird one. You know it's going to happen eventually, but you're not always expecting it. One day, everything is normal, then BAM. Puberty hits you in a way you can't ignore.

One dad is getting attention for the incredibly supportive way he handled his daughter's first period. "So today I got 'The Call,'" Maverick Austin started out a Facebook post that has now gone viral.

The only thing is, Austin didn't know he got "the call." His 13-year-old thought she pooped her pants. At that age, your body makes no sense whatsoever. It's a miracle every time you even think you know what's going on.

Plus-size women are in the majority. In America, 68% of women wear a size 14 or higher. Yet many plus-sized are ignored by the fashion industry. Plus-sized clothing is a $21 billion industry, however only one-fifth of clothing sales are plus-sized. On top of that, plus-sized women are often body shamed, further reinforcing that bigger body types are not mainstream despite the fact that it is common.

Plus-size fashion blogger Katie Sturino recently called out her body shamers. Sturino runs the blog, The 12ish Style, showing that plus-sized fashion isn't – and shouldn't be – limited to clothes that hide the body.

There is a strange right-wing logic that suggests when minorities fight for equal rights it's somehow a threat to the rights already held by those in the majority or who hold power.

Like when the Black Lives Matter movement started, many on the right claimed that fighting for black people to be treated equally somehow meant that other people's lives were not as valuable, leading to the short-lived All Lives Matter movement.

This same "oppressed majority" logic is behind the new Straight Pride movement which made headlines in August after its march through the streets of Boston.
