Hello, my name is Yvonne, I’m a college-aged cis-female who has a love for photography, and I have hirsutism. Basically, I grow thick hair where normally only males grow such hair, which includes my face. It’s made me feel insecure and “man-ish” for a lot of my life, so I took on this project. I did this to explore what the widely-accepted gender ideals are and how I might fit in them, mostly, so I can accept that I don’t.
If you’d like to see the other photos in better quality, check out the flickr set, and I’m always open to messages!
WOW you are absolutely gorgeous. This is such a wonderful project, and just- gyah you are so very lovely. :>
A+++ gold stars most wonderful human award goes to you, girl. it takes massive amounts of courage and self confidence to rise above the degradation women recieve over their body hair, and i will forever applaud anyone who can. also, you are beautiful.
