Red Hair Dye

Someone wrote…

A friend of mine, who is trans female, told me about her medical transition:

“It’s a bit like dyeing your hair red,” Marcella explained. “You have to constantly keep up with it; it racks up one hell of a maintenance bill; only assholes point out if you obviously just started; and while there are certain things that this process alone won’t give you, you still look in the mirror and go ‘Damn I look fiiiiiine!’ “

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
