THE AMON AMARTH VIKING BEARD CONTEST: FEMALE RULE UPDATE!
There seemed to be quite a bit of outrage in response to the Amon Amarth Viking Beard Contest we announced yesterday. In its original incarnation the contest was only going to be open to men, but in an effort to include women in the fun as well we came up with the pubic hair idea at the last minute. It was well-intentioned but wrongly received, and those of you who expressed anger that men only have to show their face while women have to show their privates are certainly justified in feeling that way. It was sexist of us to request those kinds of entries on an unequal playing field, and we apologize.
We’d still like to keep the contest open to women, though; instead of growing out the hair around your nether regions, women are encouraged to grow and/or style their armpit hair or leg hair to enter this contest! The photo submission guidelines at the beginning and end of the contest remain the same.
Additionally, there were now be two identical prize packages, thus leveling the playing field even more; one for men, one for women.
