These days, acceptance is all the rage. Social conventions, beauty standards, and taboos are being questioned everywhere. In particular, when it comes to body image and societal expectations for how attractive women display themselves in public.

People has to look beyond the exact object to understand the incident to a more contrasting level. TikToker Nellie-Jean Robinson wanted to raise some voice about the condition she’s suffering from.
Nellie-Jean Robinson is 35 years old. She went viral for speaking about Hirsutism on her videos.
Know what Hirsutism is? It is a hormonal condition that grows hair on women’s face and certain parts of the upper body.
