Woman Grows Hipster Beard After Decade Of Shaving Her Face And Finally Finds Love

Published

on

Meet 26-year-old Nova Galaxia.

She’s got polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) which has resulted in excess facial hair growth.

For years, Nova has shaved her face – but after finding love with a model called Ash, she’s found the confidence to grow a ‘hipster beard’.

A boy in my class at high school pointed at my face and said I had a better beard than he probably ever would,’ Nova recalls. ‘By this stage, I was shaving every single day before school. It was getting really thick and I would have a panic if I ever forgot my razor at sleepovers. ‘I’d get up early and shave, pretending I was desperate for a shower, but really I couldn’t stand to let myself be seen with a beard.

She says that apart from her then long-term girlfriend, very few people knew about her ‘dark secret’.

‘I was worried people would think I was a freak if I let my hair grow out.’

But her life changed completely after finding the courage to ask model Ash, who does not identify as male or female, out on a date in 2012. Nova says: ‘I saw Ash on the runway and I thought “how cute”. We got talking and I realised this gorgeous model and me had a lot in common’.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Nova has gradually become more and more confident in talking about her condition and in October last year, she finally threw away her razor.

Although it was scary at first, she says she now loves her beard – which is shampooed and conditioned every day to keep it in tip-top condition.

Despite negative reactions, Nova says that she receives loads of positive comments about her beard, not least from Ash. ‘I love her beard,’ Ash says.

Yes, people do stop and stare at us, watch us walk down the street and ask Nova random questions to determine her gender, but she’s never been happier and that makes me proud. I adore her, beard and all.’

Most of the trolling that Nova endures seems to centre around her gender, with people finding it hard to see her as a woman and not a trans person. ‘People have accused me of pretending to be a woman, or they think I’m transgender, but I don’t care. It’s not an insult to be trans, I’m just not – I’m a gay woman. 

She says she is happier now than she has ever been (Collect/PA Real Life)

‘Anyway, with my hipster beard, I feel happier now than I have ever been. I am with someone I love, who supports my decision and loves me for me and my beard. ‘I have no idea when I am going to stop growing it. It’s a part of me now, and I love it.’

Published

A nightclub in Miami Beach has shut down after bizarre footage emerged showing a bikini clad woman riding a horse across the dancefloor.

The frightened animal can be seen panicking as it’s ridden through the crowd of club goers.

Revellers can be heard shrieking, cheering and applauding as the nearly-naked lady is bucked from the saddle by the seemingly distressed animal.

This is awful poor horse😱

That is really disgusting it so wrong Shame in the club for allowing this

So sad to see this. I’m happy @mokaimiami is currently closed but who rented this horse to the club in the first place?
— Elizabeth Uga  (@queenelizaa) March 10, 2018

Almost 3,000 people have now signed a petition which pushed for lawful action against the club, showing concern for the horse’s welfare.

The petition on change.org read:

People go to night clubs to have a good time, enjoy drinks with friends, dance and party. This environment is by no means a place for ANY animal or wildlife.
A video of Miami nightclub, Mokai, showed a horse being ridden by a female employee and restrained by party goers in a struggle to run off. This is not only a danger to everybody in the night club, but the horses well-being and safety.
In the video you can see the horse stumbling and collapsing – probably due to a floor wet from alcohol, stress from people capacity and music/lights.
The question remains as to WHY a horse was let into the doors of Mokai in the first place, but the answer remains the same, ACTION MUST BE TAKEN for letting this happen.

Miami is a beautiful and great city where we love to have fun, but we will NOT support animal abuse.
Crazy!! Poor horse. Was someone trying to recreate that scene from #Studio54?! 😱

Miami Beach City Manager, Jimmy L. Morales, has issued an official order for Mokai Lounge’s business license to be removed.

Morales made the following statement:
I was disgusted and offended that any legitimate businessperson would think this was an appropriate action to take.
This activity was not permitted and as soon as we became aware, I immediately instructed staff to act swiftly in remedying this situation.

Miami Beach Police have now confirmed that the horse is ‘healthy and safe’ following it’s ordeal.

UPDATE: Miami Beach PD detectives along with @MiamiDadePD ’s animal experts have located the horse that was at Mokai. The horse has been inspected and deemed to be healthy and safe by Miami Dade PD.
Our investigation continues. https://t.co/pCI5TZ9sww

Let this be a lesson to anybody who thinks that it’s okay to use a living creature as a prop – animals are not here for our entertainment.

A l nightclub really is no place for a horse or any other animal for that matter.

Woman Dramatically Cuts Boyfriend’s Throat While He Chokes On Piece Of Steak

Published

on

Have you ever cut off a piece of steak that is too big, but it’s just too good and you try to swallow it anyway and nearly choke?

You would have probably either spat it back up and chewed it some more or force it down. But for a New Zealander, he wasn’t so lucky and the piece of meat got lodged in his throat.

Izak Bester was enjoying a lovely BBQ with his girlfriend and friends at Waimarama Beach, Hawke’s Bay, when he suddenly started choking.

His pals immediately started doing the Heimlich manoeuvre, but unfortunately that didn’t help the situation and the 50-year-old passed out.

He then started turning blue, and then purple, and then black and his girlfriend, Sarah Glass, who is also a midwife, knew that they were running out of time.

We would definitely want Sarah around for a situation like this because what she did next is impressive.

She grabbed a Stanley knife and found a spot just below Izak’s Adam’s Apple and jammed the blade into his throat for an emergency tracheotomy.

While it may sound like Sarah is doing more harm than good, the small incision that she made allowed Izak to breathe.

Their friends also had an oxygen tank handy inside of their property (well done!), which they used to keep fresh air flowing through his system and performed CPR for 30 minutes until paramedics arrived.

There’s no denying that her quick thinking saved her boyfriend’s life. He was placed in a medically-induced coma when he arrived in hospital and stayed in that state for three days.

“We had no choice – it was do that or he was dead,” Sarah told Stuff.

“I think anyone could do it if they’re looking at someone they care about and it’s the only thing that will keep them alive.“Izak had nothing but praise for his missus for her quick and smart work, saying: “She said it was a no-brainer because I was dead already.”

Incredibly, he said that the only thing that was painful about the whole ordeals was when he was brought out of his coma was a sore chest – not a peep about a casual hole in his neck.

People Angry At YouTuber Sonia Sae Who Gives Her Fox A Vegan Diet

Published

on

Vegan animal rights activist and YouTuber Sonia Sae is getting loads of criticism online for keeping her pet, a fox called Jumanji, on a vegan diet.

Foxes would normally eat meat in the wild, but the blogger is feeding it non-meat based cat food.

Some people claim that this is causing all sorts of health problems for Jumanji.

Sae has explained away a lot of the claimed health problems and insists that Jumanji is well. But that has not stopped some concerned people online, who claim the police are investigating.

In a public post, one Facebook user said: “It was recently also discovered Jumanji is partially blind already, no doubt due to taurine deficiency from his diet of vegan cat food.

“He is experiencing hair loss (which she claims is an allergy), appears underweight, and from the videos provided on her instagram last week, he is also lethargic for a fennec.”

The user continued: “[Sae] also claims he sheds his winter and summer coats…fennec foxes are a desert dwelling animal and do not have seasonal coats that they ‘shed’…meanwhile hair loss is a very common symptom of malnutrition.

“Sonia has refused to listen to experts who are all appalled at her treatment of Jumanji and have contacted her regarding the health of her fennec fox. Among these are a few sanctuaries, fox rescues, and exotic vet techs.”

The police are now currently investigating and hopefully some progress will be made in getting Jumanji the care he needs.

Although Jumanji’s natural diet would include things like mice, insects and worms, Sae has disagreed with such opinions thus far.

She said: “Thank you for being concerned about his health on this subject. He is in good shape, his blood tests are fine, he’s healthy, playful and hasn’t shown any signs of malnutrition for around 3 years.”

In another post, she added: “They use the word ‘abuse’ to describe the act of feeding [it] food that no animal had to die for. Despite the obvious oxymoron, any other non-vegan alternative does involve abuse by default.

“I am preparing a video to explain everything, debunking all the lies that some people have spread about this whole situation, putting updated blood tests, explaining his story etc.”
