Trending: I Was Always the Girl with the Mustache - Response for Rude date by Woman

Today I found one trending topic in NEWS, about the Response for Rude date by woman in a way of Poem.

Her name is Naina Kataria, girl from India had written this poem to oppose in a different way towards the mentality regarding woman body hair in our world.

Poem with title -I was always the girl with a mustache” on the Facebook was gone viral.

The poem, posted on May 3, reads in its entirety:
When a man tells me
I’m beautiful
I don’t believe him.
Instead, I relive my days in high school
When no matter how good I was
I was always the girl with a moustache
He doesn’t know what it’s like
to grow up in your maternal family
Where your body is the only one that
Proudly boasts of your father’s X
While your mother’s X sits back and pities
It’s unladylike-ness
He doesn’t know the teenager
Who filled her corners with
Empty consolations of
Being loved for who she was- someday.
He doesn’t know hypocrisy.
He doesn’t know of the world that
tells you to ‘be yourself’
and sells you a fair and lovely shade card
in the same fucking breath
He doesn’t know of the hot wax and the laser
whose only purpose is to
replace your innocent skin
with its own brand of womanhood
He doesn’t know of the veet and the bleach
That uproot your robust hair
in the name of hygiene
Hygiene, which when followed by men
makes them gay and unmanly
He doesn’t know how unruly eyebrows are tamed
and how uni-brows die a silent death
All to preserve beauty
And of the torturous miracles that happen
Inside the doors marked
So when a man calls me beautiful
I throw at him, a smile; a smile that remained
After everything the strip pulled away
And I dare him
To wait
Till my hair grows back.

She tries to give the message to celebrity, who advertise for hair removal and razor stuff to look woman beautiful, she wants to give message them to go natural instead of going to be femaniest.
