So almost 2 weeks have passed and the beard is coming in much better. Judging by this photo, I’m at the point that most post-op transgender men are at when their testosterone is working. I’m not at full-on Francis Ford Coppola beard-stage yet but I’ll be getting there. Look at my mouth sideways. It looks like a party doll’s labia (not the cheap ones but the $200 ones, the inflatable rubbery latex ones; how I know this is beyond me, I’m not THAT desperate. I think I saw one on an old episode of HBO’s Real Sex back in 2000).
