When/Why did Moustaches become creepy?

I think it was towards the end of the '80s. Plenty of women back in the day certainly didnt think Tom Selleck was creepy.
They certainly do now though. I know that my wife gets weirded out if I dont keep my mustache trimmed up. If it starts to hang over my lip, she hates it.
Its a shame too because Id be all about growing a big, epic mustache but Im also not all about creeping my wife out.
 
I've noticed in general people are kind of eh. But individually, that's different. If it's a neat trim full stache, usually a conservative style, worn with confidence, there's usually no problem. But sadly, the most common ones around here are scrawny caterpillars.
 
Lots of mustaches w all the hipsters nowadays. I would agree w many of the comments-70s and porn...I would also add that the gay leather scene probably didn’t win many mainstream fans to the stache.

I think it became a thing when you started seeing pics of serial killers with porn star staches. :D The only folks I ever saw that actually made a bushy stache look good were Tom Selleck and Sam Elliott. My wife definitely agrees with that (as does every female I know)

Also Burt Reynolds, Nick Offerman, Jay Chandransetta, William H. Macy, any 70s hard rock bassist. Wear it thick and full and unapologetically and it'll work.
 
I could grow a great beard in high school, but my work only allowed a stache. Went that way for a few years until I was no longer restricted. I've shaved back to that point about 4 times in 28 years

I believe I saw pornstache but did not see pedismile mentioned? Around here generally categorized as a porn star, cop, or pedifile with a mustache alone. I wore a mustache for a while and thought it was fine. (years ago) I looked back at some pics and thought "what was I thinking". Not sure if my opinion changed due to "style" or stigma. Now it is mustache with goatee or full beard depending on time of year.
