    As all of you know I am a ftm trans guy. Recently I have made the decision to grow out my leg and arm hair. To pass do I needto grow hair other places??

    Also, I'd greatly appreciate if yiu guys woukd glance at my album and tell me how I'm doing on passing.

    I desperately need help on passing as you guys can tell.

    Any advice helps! Thank you.

    I'm assuming you're talking about facial hair. To which I'll say no, you don't need to be bearded in order to "pass". My advice for passing? Be yourself. How you carry yourself and being confident are what will help you get along more than a "how-to fashion guide".

    It'd be weird for a 14 year old to have facial hair lol....

    how about under arm hair?

    Some heterocis guys I know shave their armpits legs arms whatever. I don't shave anything because I couldn't be arsed and I also like hair because it's natural and helps cool me off. Sweaty shaved armpits are the worst.

    ^ This. If you want to grow it out, go for it. Plenty of cis guys shave their body hair. It's all about preference and what you'd like to do.

    At 14 I had body hair including facial hair, an uncomfortable amount of it. So don't think you'd be too young.
