Tina-Marie Beznec, a 26-year-old with a hormonal disorder called polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), is raising awareness with a viral Facebook post, complete with some eye-catching photos and a perfectly written appeal for everyone to "NOT JUDGE," full stop.

Hey Hun! You'll probably never read this but it's worth a try lol I would love for you to share this photo and my spiel...

Asking popular "mommy blogger" Constance Hall to share her post, Beznec writes:

Hi my name is Tina and I have Polycystic ovary syndrome. As well as depression, anxiety, infertility, weight gain, hormonal imbalances, bloating, abdominal pains, acne, cysts, increased risk of cancer and everything else, a lot of woman including myself have to deal with facial hair!

Do you know how UNFEMININE this can make a woman feel?!? I've always been super self conscious about it, but really just have to put this out there because I want create more awareness around this syndrome and how much it can impact someone's life especially if they don't know they have it.


Hall shared her post, of course, and now thousands have no choice but to internalize Beznec's message and ACT ON IT (as Beznec herself might write, with her charming penchant for hitting caps-lock on the most important parts of her speech.)

Beznec continued:

When you see someone who is overweight, has bald patches, or a woman who has facial hair DO NOT JUDGE

You never know what a person is going through and it's unfair to put someone into the "lazy and unhealthy" category without knowing their story. I know it's only natural for some of us to judge someone based on how they look but remember we are all fighting our own battles and you can never understand if you aren't willing to learn and listen..


Beznec's own blog may not have as many followers as Hall's, but Fight against Fat is a great place to visit if you care about body positivity and healthy living.

Check it out, and definitely DO NOT JUDGE.
