Most of the reactions to the tv report, “Faszination Leben”, were friendly, supporting, encouraging and positive. Some reacted with disgust and some other expressions. One of them even felt harassed by my appearance.
The problem for them is that this woman has a beard. If she was a man – no one would have taken notice of the beard…..But it is not acceptable that a woman has a beard. And above all she even lets people do a film about her and showing it on TV!!
What thoughts would the same people have, if under my picture would be written this is a man? Would they still feel disgusted? Is it the way the beard has grown? Does it need some styling? ! Someone wrote my beard is matted..
Why do they react so extreme? Is it the education, society, media?
It is amazing what reactions such a few innocent hairs on the “wrong spot” can cause! On other parts of the body people are longing for them if they are not there…
Seeing this from a distance I find it quite amusing. Such a lot of fear is being caused by bodyhair!? How dangerous are these hairs?!
Why do people like it more to be pierced or having a tatoo, then their own bodyhair?!
Seeing a fly the other day in my room, I understood why I used to kill it: because I was afraid. I was afraid it could fly into my face and tickle me, that it would leave its shit on the lamp and bring germs onto my food, which might cause illness….etc…. My fear was bigger than this little animal. To really look at the fear, and to ask yourself is it true what I believe, can open up the eyes and the heart and suddenly the fear has gone.
What are you fighting against just out of fear?!
