“I have hirsutism. Basically, I grow thick hair where normally only males grow such hair, which includes my face. It’s made me feel insecure and ‘man-ish’ for a lot of my life, so I took on this project. I did this to explore what the widely-accepted gender ideals are and how I might fit in them, mostly, so I can accept that I don’t.”

    I have this as well, and struggled with it for YEARS when I identified (or tried very hard to identify) as female.

    This will sound dippy, but since I’ve come out as bigender, I see all the more ‘handsome’ attributes – broad shoulders, face fuzz, thick limbs – as sort of a divine nudge in the direction of my real identity.

    I’m glad you embrace your fuzz. You are just gorgeous.

    Yes, a lovely person to look at. What matters more: you are clearly a sensitive and brave person. Gender and appearance aside: we need more sensitive and brave people in the world.
