Bearded woman refuses to let facial hair defeat her after years of hiding!
Agustina Dorman found it unbearably painful to shave her goatee so was forced to let it grow - and now she is showing it off in newly released photo.
After years of hiding her thick black facial hair under a hijab, Agustina Dorman, 38, has stepped proudly out and embraced her condition.
The Indonesian woman first noticed the hair sprouting on her face when she was 25, just days after the birth of her first child.
Dismayed at what she saw in the mirror, she hid away and refused to see her friends and neighbours in her small village of Penaga, Indonesia.
But the brave woman has decided to ditch the clothing - regardless of the stares and unwanted attention she now attracts.
Agustina said that whenever she tried to cut or shave her beard she experienced excruciating pain, so in the end she let it grow.
But scared that her children - aged 19 and three - would be bullied, Agustina hid away under the hijab.
The unlucky woman also has a mild moustache and facial hair, and she at last felt she could hide it under the thick clothing.
But she says her eldest child began to get teased from others who found out about her unfortunate condition.
It led her to confront her children's tormentors by unveiling herself and freely walking around their village for the first time.
She still gets taunted by some but others have accepted her in to the community whole-heartedly.
She hopes that through education about her condition, people will become accepting of her appearance.
Earlier this year, German bearded lady Mariam appeared on Daytime TV to reveal she still felt sexy with her stubble. Mirror reports.
