My mask.

Someone wrote…

I just took a major step in direction of my preferred gender expression… I shaved off the beard that’s been my mask for so long. I feel both empowered and exposed.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I felt the same when I got rid of the curtains of hair I had.

    I am tempted to get rid of my mustache, but I don’t know what I would twiddle during evil contemplation.
