Bearded Lady

We all enjoy a good chortle at a bearded lady. Even the most boring committee meeting, political party conference or even a funeral of a close family member can be brightened up by the sight of a hirsute woman.
Now you might be thinking that this is a rather bold statement, but it is not without historical precedent according to the barking mad Catholics. If this collection of ageing paedophiles are to be believed, it is actually possible to combine both a family funeral with a circus freak, such as a bearded woman.

Consider the story of St. Wilgefortis. Her father had promised her hand in marriage to a pagan king. For most teenagers this would present itself as a golden opportunity to both rebel against social norms, whilst gaining notoriety and status. The youth of today are reduced to exposing themselves on reality shows in order to gain such distinction.

However, the ungrateful Wilgefortis had taken a pledge of celibacy. Consequently, she prayed to God, that he might deliver her from her perceived ordeal. According to the Catholics, God answered her prayers by allowing her to grow a beard. The pagan king swiftly lost interest and the forthcoming nuptials were called off. Unfortunately, her father was not impressed and had her crucified.

Many urban legends, fables and myths are actually just the result of genuine events that have been embellished over the years. The tale of St. Wilgefortis probably started life as the execution of a deluded cross dresser.

  4. I like to wear panties, but I don't consider myself a crossdresser or have any desire to be a women. I wear them because they feel naughty and sexy.

  5. The catholics have many martyr saints. Whenever you question catholic priests about them, they suddenly become very coy. Fairytale rubbish.

  8. I always felt that people with beards have something to hide. Women with beards must have been involved in something particularly bad.

  15. Virgin martyrs are plentiful in the catholic church. It is hard to believe people actually get taken in by this crap. They very rarely get a public airing.

  20. In Italy many old women have facial hair. Italian women are so hot when they are younger, but not so good with age.
