    Okay, yes it was random. But I need to shout it somewhere. I so want facial hair. Though it will probably be like 5-8 years from now when I can even start trying to grow some...

    *impatient moan*

    Sorry. Awkward.

    I feel the same, dude. Not so strongly, I don't think, but I do. I love stubble on other guys and I want to laugh at my brother for trying, but also beat him. And if I like it on myself, I know it's something that I'll keep.

    I hear ya. Back when I was starting to come out, I was working on growing my beard out for over two years and it's been a pain on trying to get back to where I was where I had a lot of visible fuzz.

    There are times I get tired of shaving, and would be happy to donate mine to a worthy cause!

    Okay, might sound strange but, have you ever considered buying a fake beard? I've had a few Mtf friends who bought wigs before they grew out their hair and that seemed to help them~ So maybe a fake beard could help you manage for now? They make beards that are realistic, I'm sure you could find some online! Idk, just an idea, I'd gladly give you guys my facial hair in a heartbeat if I could... I still am not rid of it x_x

    I wish.

    Yeah I always think "if only" MtFs and FtMs could magically trade their undesirables to the other person (don't read too much about how inappropriate that just sounded).

    I especially love stubble though. When I do start getting facial hair I'd be tempted to just always have stubble on my face. Neat and groomed, not scraggly.

    Though it's been several years, I am capable of growing a Viking beard. I'd gladly give you my facial hair, because it is going to waste at the moment, and it is a shame because many men have told me, they envy my ability to grow facial hair.

    Can we all just have an exchange program with things we'd like to have or don't like about ourselves? That sounds fair.

    Yo, okay, I also greatly desire to grow facial hair; in the meantime, I may have stumbled upon a temporary solution. I have seen, in the transgender and Cosplay realm, a series of tutorials--people buy crepe hair, cut it short, and spirit gum it to their faces in the shape of the beard they want that day. It seems like it could be a time-consuming process, but it comes out looking damn near perfect if you do it right. I don't know how to go about getting realistic stubble, though.

    As an afab who can grow facial hair without T, I sometimes wish I couldn't. I like how my face looks with it, but it looks wrong on my female face. Not to mention the pressure if society telling me I shouldn't have it and getting ridicule by assholes who see it.
    Yeah, wait till your face is more masculine, then facial hair is alright.

    Also when it grows out it itches like hell

    It stops itching after a while.

    I never wanted to grow beard before I started with testosterone injections... but when it finally started to grow and became visible I really liked it! It was a hard time learning how to care for it, but now when I have learned that I love my beard, can't live without it!

    Another thing you can do is substitute crepe hair with your own clippings or darken existing facial hair with mascara.

    Well, there must be a difference when shaving becomes part of daily rutine.

    Now I'm in love with the few hairs I've been blessed with.. who knows when I finally push nature and things get serious... I'm remembering my father's struggles to keep a neat and tidy face, and taking proper care of your skin. It's not all glory & razors & waking up looking perfect right out of an Axe advertisement.

    Yeah, I'm lazy, specially in the morning.
