Woman with Beard Shows No Shame: It's How God Made Me...

Pssst, Kim Kardashian:

Wanna keep complaining over your weighty portrayal on supermarket tabloid covers? We'd like you to meet Harnaam Kaur.

This 23-year old teaching assistant from Great Britain has a beard. Not some fuzz on her upper lip that she could maybe get waxed... a full-on beard.

"It's the way that God made me, and I'm happy with it," Kaur says of her unusual appearance, which is due to a condition called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.

After years of being bullied, Kaur was baptized as a Sikh at the age of 16 and stopped cutting her hair. 

She's worn it proudly ever since.

"I feel more feminine, more sexy and I think I look it too," Kaur told the Mirror, adding that she sees no conflict between the beard and her own gender:

"I'm able to go out and shop in the women's section without feeling I shouldn't be there. I wear skirts, dresses and jewellery and I like to get my nails done like every other girl."

Based on what she told BarcroftTV, we should all aspire to be more like Harnaam Kaur.

"This is me. This is who I am. It's my inner beauty, it's my outer beauty. It's my oneness, it's my wholeness. I'm different, and I've learned to accept it... fully."
