Question: what is worse - teenage DJs or teenage psytrance DJs?
@danielle which makes sense to me! The markers of gender aren't just on the surface, they're indelibly bound up with our sense of self and understanding of who and how we are. It's right and it's good that we should have autonomy and control of such fundamental things as the individuals we know/feel/believe we are. (If you'll forgive the internet-gender-theorist waffling...)
@danielle for me it's just part of the general mess and chaos of the body. I enjoy the ritual of shaving, and all of the oils and soaps and creams and splashes and scents. My beard annoys me if I let it grow more than a few days, though, so I'm not Stockholm-y with it, I guess. I don't feel any particular horror.
After all, there's fingernails, head hair, pubes... All of them grow in the same kind of way.
I don't discount that someone else may feel radically different, tho...

People who haven't seen me in a while saying "Oh, you look *different*", "You've cleaned up!", or my least best favourite "Oh! You used to be... uh... blonde."
Well, I used to like you, only something ate your brain and you're actually a fuckwit, so I'm pissing in your beer.
