Female facial hair: if so many women have it, why are we so deeply ashamed?
Female facial hair a series of contradictions — common yet considered abnormal — and the pressure to remove it represents the most basic rules of the patriarchy. W omen like me have been keeping a secret. The removal of facial hair is just as paradoxical — the pressure to do it is recognized by many women as a stupid social norm and yet they strictly follow it.
Women with visible facial hair have often been treated like sideshow attractions, attracting curiosity and ridicule even when not performing in an actual 19th-century carnival. But facial hair, like all body hair, is completely natural.
