Bearded Woman Says Facial Hair Makes Her Feel (Retch) Sexy

Bearded woman from Germany

Bearded woman says facial hair makes her feel sexy

German-born Mariam says she feels more confident now that she's stopped trying to hide her facial hair. After failed electrolysis attempts and years of tweezing, the 49-year-old mom embraced the growing goatee and joined the circus.

A German woman who struggled with facial hair for nearly two decades said she finally feels sexy, now that she’s ditched the clippers and let her beard grow.

“I feel more confident and I know myself better now than when I was younger,” the 49-year-old mom, identified only as Mariam, told the British talk show, “This Morning.”

Mariam explained to hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield she began growing facial hair 28 years ago, after the birth of her son.

Extra hormones produced during pregnancy can trigger hair growth.

She tried electrolysis three times, but the hair always grew back.

After years of using tweezers to disguise the growing goatee, Mariam gave up in August 2008.

“It was more curiosity, like what will happen with me if I let it grow,” she said. “Like how it will make me feel.”

Now Mariam only trims her beard for maintenance. She’s the “Bearded Lady” in a traveling circus and writes about her experiences on a blog.

Despite some nasty comments and criticism — even Mariam’s own mother questioned her decision to keep the beard— she discovered a newfound confidence.

After being single for a decade, she’s also looking for love.

“I think I’m more ready to have a relationship,” Mariam said.

Looks more like a transsexual male that had more cash for a boob job than for electrolysis

I always figured that’s why that raghead trash wore those burkhas, viz. cause they’re too lazy to shave.

You know, she looks younger that way.

Now if she’d only shave her head, her statement making would be complete.

There’s only one place where a woman should have a beard, and it ain’t on her face.

There are laser treatments that supposedly work. There’s also waxing that works in a variety of places. NO WAY would I let that happen to me if I had that problem.

She may feel sexy but I can’t imagine who would agree with her. Maybe Chaz Bono?

There are some guys who go out looking for “squach”.

There is laser hair removal and electrolysis. Both are highly effective. I think more than her hormones changed after the birth of the kid. She is amazingly disgusting-looking with the facial hair. Maybe she uses it as birth control to avoid having any more children.
