A bearded woman has revealed that she frequently receives death threats over her hair as she opened up about her polygamous relationship.
Little Bear Schwarz appeared on This Morning via video link in Seattle with new boyfriend Tobias.
She spoke about how she feared that she would not be able to find love because of her facial hair.

Little Bear “felt resigned” to shaving every morning and that that she felt there was “such deep shame” in doing so.
“I spent so many years trying to hide it,” she said, but revealed that she later tried going without shaving it for a while and ended up entering a beard competition, which she won.
Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford asked her partner Tobias what drew him to Little Bear and he said that she was “not fake”.
But asked whether Little Bear was always positive, he said that she was often happy but added: “She get flocks of creeps who flock to her social media and send her death threats.”
Little Bear said that he often protected her from nasty comments in the street.
The pair also spoke about their polygamous relationship and she said: “I don’t see love as a finite resource.
