hair removal update

The HPL hair removal unit has been doing its job. The first thing I noticed is that little patches of hair on my hands and fingers are now free of regrowth. So where once a week or so I would need to take a razor to them, they have not required it.

Most of us who are gender dysphoric hate excess hair and I am no exception. Therefore anything that helps in this regard is a Godsend. I have also been treating my face, legs, chest and underarms but those take time and I expect months to go by before I notice significant reduction.

So, do I recommend this product based on progress to date? Yes I do but I see patience will be a virtue here and the timeline will be 6 months to a year but, considering the price of the unit, that is hardly an inconvenience.

Those of you looking for a semi-permanent to permanent solution to hair removal should consider it. Just remember that its meant for dark hair and will not work on white.

  1. Funny thing about the "meant for dark hair" precaution: many of us who need hair removal are older. And that means gray hair! Certainly a disappointment... But I'm happy that the unit is working for you!

    In my own case, I had my arms, underarms, legs, hands and feet, chest and back all laser-treated when I was younger - and more importantly, still working - so I had both money AND dark hair. While I still get some regrowth on the chest and to a lesser extent, the back (now mostly gray), I keep them covered and use a razor to clean up the upper chest when necessary.

    My arms and legs are such that I can use my epilator about 3 times a month to take care of peachfuzz and the dark hairs which remain. And I use tweezers from time to time on the black and gray hairs on my face. Long live makeup.

    It's inconvenient, but I can live with that. Especially since I'm not transitioning...

    1. Glad you have a formula that works Mandy. I still have enough black hairs that this product can help with and others might also benefit given its cost relative to laser. It might be slower but that's all.

How times have changed.

Whereas transition was something not to even contemplate for us, here is a young trans person who felt the opposite pressure. She looks and sounds extremely passable but decided it wasn't for her despite the social media presence of young transitioners potentially inspiring her to.

We are all different and I happen to think she's rather a smart cookie as well...


indoctrination

As transgender people, organized religion hasn't really been our friend however on the other hand it has often had little to do with true spirituality. I needed to learn this over time and much of what I was taught growing up was steeped in the judgmental superstition of society instead of what some creator would demand of me.

Regardless of your belief system, you are a child of the universe and have been endowed with uniqueness and goodness of spirit. You have probably never wished anyone ill will and you have tried your best to live within the absurd coordinate system of humanity. Yet somehow belonging to the LGBT community was entirely your fault.

As I have grown older this inherent irrationality became increasingly evident to me. I knew I was a fundamentally good person and yet I was different in a way which was not of my choosing. Hence with this comprehension my self appreciation and esteem grew in proportion.

Religion for me today seems forever trapped in the misinterpretat…

This post is prompted by a recent comment I received to one of my older posts and I wanted to address it.

I used to wonder why some transgender people accepted Blanchard’s work until I think I figured out why: they may not have examined it closely enough. They would experience cross gender arousal and then accept it was Autogynephilia without properly understanding what the term meant and what the theory said: it is an invented sexual “illness” which makes people transition. In other words, it is the arousal itself which causes this desire and not a pre-existing gender identity which does not align with birth sex. Of course, Blanchard has no explanation for the origin of his proposed “illness” only that it is a form of sexual deviance.

My counter proposal? we transition despite this arousal. In other words, the transgender identity is pre-existing and the arousal is the result of the mismatching of burgeoning sexual feelings towards females and this misaligned identity; it is not per…
