These Pictures Of Women With Beards Smashing Beauty Standards Like It's No Man's Business Are Stunning

These women show the world that their very existence defiantly questions repressive societal norms, and sets a heartening precedent that there's is no right way to look, irrespective of gender.

Let's talk about facial hair, shall we? The absolutely natural phenomenon that exists in every person's life. Like all beauty standards that plague mankind, you could have too much facial hair or too little facial hair.

But if you identify as a woman, having facial hair is more like sacrilege. Constant "polite" reminders such as "Isn't it time to trim that mustache?", "Is that a little beard I see?", everybody acts like the "body police" around you. If you've just painstakingly taken an hour to plucked out every "unacceptable" hair off your face, there will still be a few jerks that'll ask you, "Oh, yesterday was shaving day, was it?"

The world needs to know that some women just have more facial hair, because of a PCOD (Polycystic Ovarian Disorder) symptom called hirsutism, hormonal imbalances or just because it is genetic. The super-duper high beauty standards of patriarchal society have conditioned us to blindly accept that attractiveness=femininity=hairlessness. But there is an increasing number of women and queer folk who have accepted their facial hair as part of their identity. They fearlessly tread onwards in life, without giving a care to the world. Their very existence defiantly questions repressive societal norms, and sets a heartening precedent that there's is no right way to look, irrespective of gender.
