the best body product

Some trans guy tips from your dad
  • Don’t try that mascara/arm hair shit. I’ve been passing for more than a year with short, blond arm hair. It’s not an important secondary sex characteristic.
  • Board shorts (without pockets in the front) do wonders to minimize the width of your hips. Always choose board shorts over swim trunks. Choose them over cargo shorts if it’s appropriate.
  • Speak from your chest, never from your head.
  • The goal of binding should not be an entirely flat chest; you should bind for your body type.
  • GC2b makes the best binders out there, and their products are designed specifically for trans men/transmasculine people.
  • It might seem useless if you’re pre-T, but working out can be a big help for dysphoria.
  • Eyebrows are really important to passing pre-testosterone. Muss that shit up. Make them look unkempt.
  • When you ask for a haircut, make sure the edges in the back are squared, not rounded.
  • If you have peach fuzz, I would advise shaving it. Cis guys shed theirs when they go through puberty. Shaving can also help with facial hair dysphoria.
  • Don’t ever buy a binder from Amazon. They run in strange sizes (I was an XXL even though I’m a M in GC2b) and take weeks/months to come. It’s also difficult to breathe in them after a few hours.

physically:

-shave w baby oil it will change your life

-start your day off with a mug of hot water with lemon it will do you wonders

-wash your face at least once daily and moisturize no matter what your skin type. in my opinion lush and shea moisture have the best skincare products.

-trim the ends of your hair every month or so. trust me.

-floss every day!!! wear your retainer!! use a whitening mouthwash!!

emotionally:

-don’t rush love. focus on your glo and the rest will come naturally

So if Padme is knocked into Obi-Wan’s body, Obi-Wan into Anakin’s and Anakin into Padme’s - we all know that:

A. Padme now knows the benefits of being Force-sensitive and finally understands what’s it all about.

B. Obi-Wan has to deal with a gazillionth amount of Force-sensitivity due to Anakin’s super midichlorian-count.

C. Anakin is left completely Force-blinded, which is a total shock to a guy who used to have the highest Force-sensitivity from every other Jedi.

BUT HE GETS TO BE IN PADME’S BODY SO THIS ARGUMENT IS COMPLETELY INVALID.

VS made it worse for sure. Wasn't she rejected once? I have a very negative view of that show because I think it only promotes obsessive exercising and only features naturally/forcibly thin girls who have access to the best dieticians and products to mantain/get their bodies, I have no doubt several of them had surgeries. Didn't Barbara leave because she refuse to diet? Look at her body, Gigi's was very similair but she had to lose weight if she wanted to be there just like Bella did.

Oh yeah, VS puts so much pressure on their models to be itty bitty skinny and I think the motivation to meet their expectation (since being part of VS is a major dream for her) is what made it possible for her to “over come” her disease and start loosing weight. The diets some of the girls admit to doing to get ready for the show is mind blowing, like Adriana Lima is the VS model right now and she says she stops drinking water and eating all together 12 hours before the show and working out twice a day every day of the week. Her trainer says they focus on looks and not weight but the ideal for Adriana is 135 pounds for the show and she’s almost 5′11… 

I’ve never seen Barbara say (or anything about her saying) she refused to diet for VS, I think Barbara and Gigi’s bodies were very similar pre-weightloss so I’m sure they would’ve put pressure on her. And then Gigi lost even more weight before her second VS walk, like I saw a before and after of the two shows and it was so stark how she still lost more and that’s the thing that really worries me with Gigi’s weightloss is her continuing to loose.
