If you can’t handle her at her hairiest, then you don’t deserve her at her smoothest.
A Danish woman from Copenhagen is looking for a man who is not scared off by a little excess growth and doesn’t desire feminine beauty norms.
Eldina Jaganjac, a 31-year-old tutor, is tired of what she describes as outrageous beauty standards forced on modern women and thinks hair removal is just another prison of the patriarchy. She says that the expectations placed upon a woman’s beauty routine are unfair, especially when compared to the difference in hair removal for men.
Jaganjac left behind her tweezer-shaped shackles in March of 2020. She wants the world to know she is no less of a woman just because of a little extra facial hair.
She even discovered she felt just as feminine with the extra coat of fur.
However, according to Unilad, not all men are understanding of her radical look. Jaganjac says she had to deal with cruel potential male suitors shouting “pluck that” or not being able to break their gaze from her eyebrows like they were looking at a “third head.”
Jaganjac now says she is not at all concerned with what people think of her controversial look. She is still fighting the good fight and says those reactions are actually positive.
She explained to the outlet that her unmanaged natural look is a quick way to sort out the “conservative” undesirables among potential partners who may only want her for her looks, leaving room for more progressive men who always wanted to feel another mustache touch theirs during a moment of passion.
“Before I let my unibrow grow out, I did feel like there were extremely limited options to how women were supposed to look,” Jaganjac asserted. “If a man doesn’t shave and doesn’t pluck his eyebrows, no one notices or comments and it’s nothing out of the ordinary.”
She added: “Just like many other women, I have learned to police myself. For instance, I used to not feel comfortable going outside unless my eyebrows were the accepted small size, and I wouldn’t go to the gym unless my legs were clean shaven.”
Some people on social media may disagree with Jaganjac turning herself into a billboard against beauty norms.
One Twitter user remarked, “It always shows you’re mentally stable when you physically try to scare off potential admirers and then blame them for not being attracted to you. Even cavemen had razors, combs, and tweezers. Attraction isn’t a choice or a ‘social construct.’”
One female Twitter user said, “Does she shower and brush her teeth? It’s called personal grooming.”
Another added, “She might land a man though, not many around who will find her attractive, but they’re out there.” However, the person continued, “The more important question is: Why would a man like that? That’s what she might have to worry about. Regular guys are the least of her worries.”
Now unburdened by finicky grooming habits, Jaganjac stressed that she’s able to “focus on the tasks and goals that I need to have done and less on how I appear while doing them.” She added that it doesn’t matter “whether people like me or not, because I probably won’t ever see them again, and if I do, I still don’t care.” As her experiment marches on, Jaganjac appears to still be single.
