Never mind, it's rainbow now.

How come KK's name is still green in here and not rainbow?
avatar
KKIGM would be a great band name.

When my ex did the transformation in the B&W pics, it had been 20 years since I had been clean shaven. Now I do it, I love being en femme, and then the moment I wash my face off I'm wishing it were next week.

same here. my chin goatee thing has remained uncut (just the occasional trim to contain it) for over 10 years now. At best it's about what a normal persons facial hair would be after 3 months.

I can’t grow a beard. The best I can do is a weird bushy chin goatee. Everything else is just patchy and stupid. Good ol’ native genes. Grin
avatar
I wouldn't even know what I look like any more

I haven't been clean shaven since, I think, 2008/2009? I literally have dreams where I accidentally slip while trimming my beard and it's messed up so I shave it all and then everyone around me is like dude wtf?
avatar
Damn, my beard can not only legally drink, it now gets a discount on auto insurance and can rent cars without age-related trouble.
avatar
Clean shaven male me can go piss right off though...*stares in the mirror, willing my beard to grow faster*

You're definitely right - there's actually not a good word for the "state" otherwise. "Dressed" is super vague if you don't know the context and "In drag" has taken on a more specific meaning. I usually use "en femme" or a more goofy "In girl mode/in boy mode" (also "girl me" and "burly & bearded me")
avatar
See, I don't know all the fun new terms...so when I say drag, it's a big spectrum brush that means a guy that wears women's clothes for enjoyment. TIL there are better defined words. Shrug

KK - my wife is working on a really cool trans related project at the moment (legal exploration of the rights of trans children): https://news.westernu.ca/2019/04/grant-t...-children/

KK - ooooout and abooooout, my friend - much love and celebration!!!

As the caption on the pic says, the one word descriptor I use is "genderqueer" the more complex one is "cismale, gender non-conforming, crossdresser."

GLAAD's glossaries are as good a 'standard' guide as any https://www.glaad.org/reference/transgender and https://www.glaad.org/reference/lgbtq (though the vocabulary is constantly changing as concepts become more open and discussed).

Close: Drag tends to be gay men dressing in an exaggeratedly (to various degrees) feminine manner for a performative purpose (at least partially). I'm a crossdresser - who tend to be straight and dress primarily as a matter of gender expression and usually in a non-exaggerated manner (although, yes, the recent wig isn't subtle Grin).

My understanding is that KK shaved his beard but it all grows back in 4 days.
