Disturbing page is disturbing… and kinda funny. But I’m only laughing because I have the same complex.

Speaking from personal experience, my worst critic for how I look is myself. Even if one does a PERFECT job of shaving and/or applying makeup, if you stare at the mirror long enough, you’ll find something is awry. Nevermind that you couldn’t see it until your face was literally pressed against the mirror. Nevermind that your extremely trustworthy friend/significant other says that they don’t see a thing. Nevermind that it’s very likely all in your head. It’s there. And you simply can’t leave it! This is a maddening feeling.

On the other hand, sometimes you really DO screw up (nobody’s perfect). Even Rain screwed up. But only slightly. And she WAS caught, but thankfully still not actually read. But for Rain, or any transsexual trying like hell to pass, her imagination is getting the best of her and she sees the worst of it.

:sigh: It’s so damn complicated sometimes.

I CAN'T grow a beard that thick.

I was rereading and was so sucked in (for the third time) that I FORGOT to shave... And thanks to my jerk of homo/transphobic sperm donor, I don't just get a 5 o'clock shadow... I get a 4, 5, 6, and 7 o'clock shadow! Heck, if left unshaved? I'd have a beard in a WEEK!

At this point I'm starting to wonder- is Rain on HRT? Or is that not gonna come up?

At this point, no. But it IS going to be talked about later on. :)

I'd assumed she was until now. I guess I shouldn't assume. Love the comic btw. Brilliant balance of comedy and drama, and Rain is so cute.

O.o It's not as if the facial hair goes away immediately. I've been on HRT for 2 years now, and- and I still have to shave!! :'{

I totally can empathize with Rain and Jocelyn. When I look in the mirror, even after shaving, I still see stubble!

Yeah, can definitely relate since facial hair not shaving has been a *really* big dysphoria trigger for me lately. >.<
