[QUOTE=canio6;840480]My wife has more body hair than she would like - facial hair etc. It makes her self-conscious and it seems to be hormonal. Now, I often refer to my wife as a dude with boobs, because she is often more male in her thinking than female. She even comments on it. To quote her, "I think my hormones are messed up, but if they fix them will I start acting like a chick?" by which she means non-logical, overly emotional, etc. Not that all women act this way of course, but she as a woman seems to think acting that way is the norm for someone with 'normal' hormones who happens to be a woman. So, lets assume she or Gravyboat or whomever got their hormones straightened out, would their personalities/emotions/way of thinking change?[/QUOTE]
high T? i have higher than normal t levels, but i only get hairy when i eat bread. does she partake of the breads?
i used to wonder 'does this make me more of a man? is this why i'm attracted to men and women? what if my hormones get normal, will i start acting like a girl? have i ever REALLY been me or will i change that easily?'
after acceptance, it's eh. i've always wanted to BE more feminine, but i'm not great at wearing spanx and high heels and rings. my only concession is pretty makeup
because it's art, dammit!
Magnolia, I thought that's why it was called bumping uglies.

High T was our thought, and she really needs to get tested. I am more concerned with health issues than cosmetic ones, and it would be nice to know what is going on. As for bread, yeah, lets say I buy enough bread weekly for 4 people and there are only two of us and I don't eat bread.
i'd go ahead and get entire blood workups, check for pcos markers
if it were me
but as i already have it, and it's not me, i put the suggestion out into the ether
cause pcos isn't kind to ones health
Hey, can we request Corvidae to come in later for more thoughtful pauses? Would that be overstepping any boundaries?
all threads become ASDF
And while we're not really still on the topic: Body "scaping" is "to each their own". I took a few photography courses in college and during one critique, someone put up a photo from a shoot they did. The model happen to have their pubes removed (waxed, shaven, dunno) and an angry discussion burst forth about how it makes a woman look like they are trying to be pre-pubescent and catering towards perverse fantasies etc. I felt very uncomfortable (was experimenting with shaving at the time) and wish I could go back in time as I am now to defend the choice. It made me really angry how dismissive those people were, since I knew them all to be very kind and considerate and thoughtful folks, but apparently not on that front.
On pits: I like having a bit of "fuzz", it's most comfortable for sweat and odor and irritation for me, but the only way for me to keep it that way is to keep shaving every few days to let it grow back out and soften up again. If I buzzed it, the hairs would be blunt and uncomfortable :(

Ill try. ;)
As to the circumcision issue: Ive had it both ways, I think theyre both fine, i think they both look interesting in their own ways. But, gentlemen, FOR GODS SAKES, if you are "intact," PLEASE KEEP THAT SHIT CLEAN! One guy I dated definitely always seemed to have an odor down nyah that was very unpleasing. :p
(Sorry I keep coming back late to the conversation. I keep getting...tied up. *thoughtful pause*)

There it is...yeah...thanks.
I agree, Wonder. It should be to each their own. I know women that are squicked out if they don't get rid of it all. As long as they're doing it to make THEMSELVES happy, then it's all good with me. It's when it's expected by others that it becomes a problem for me. (although, my personal feeling is that women have hair, so, like, deal? But that's just me)
Have you tried epilating? Hurts like a bitch, but it means that I don't have to shave my pits daily- and even when the hair starts to grow back in it's softer and looks finer because it was plucked not shaved. When I keep up with it it even keeps my leg-hair mostly under control.
