The Sun UK About Bearded Women

Mariam SUN 2016 MarchToday an article was published in the SUN in the UK written by Diana Appleyard, about three bearded women: Harnaam, Sarah Taylor and myself!

I am happy, that more and more the media is opening up and helping to raise awareness to the reality that some women have facial hair and that women do not have to fight against their body or facial hair. That they can choose to embracee and accept it! For too long women have tried to adapt to ideas of society and now it is time to be free and walk the path they like to walk!

Some women who have a beard might feel between man and woman and I for myself can say I do not feel like a “woman” as defined by society . – We humans can not be divided into only two categories! We all have so many aspects and I feel I have a lot of male but also female aspects so that I cannot say I am just woman in the sense of what women are described to be. The words : Woman – man are labels that take our freedom to be as we are. Why should a man be hard, not cry etc and a woman should behave in a womanlike way not being allowed to sit with legs wide open or climb on trees or repair some items in the house? We are living in a time where we have more and more awareness and are free to live out of this box thinking!

For generations it was not possible for people to live as they would have liked for the social pressures and dependencies. This is so much more possible today and  there might always be some kind of dependency – but we can move towards being as free as we can and want.

Todays Article from Huffington Post about Little Bear the Bearded Lady!

little bearMore and more bearded women show up especially in the US! Today the Huffington Post published an article and interview podcast with Little Bear woman with a beard, working in a “Freekshow” and also having a “normal” Job as a freelancer and writer. More and more women have the courage to show themselves with a beard. They stop fighting facial or body hair, they stop trying to adapt to social norms and the screaming industry of fashion and cosmetics that try to convince women to style themselves as they dictate in order to be lovable and ok. NO! Women with a beard are as ok as any other human being on this planet!! And the more of us are there and be seen, the more it becomes “normal”.This world is interesting because we are different in character and appearance and we have a lot in common as human beings. Hoping for more respect and openess for Women with beards and all other Gender Queer People!
