*EDIT* Coopdog posted while I was typing so this post will look a bit out of place. The bearded guy at the liquor store today said, "You shaved your beard!" not "It looks good!" Seven years down the drain... Nair might do it, I have some in the medicine chest for ...other hair... Thanks for the help Mrs Coop!*EDIT*
Allow me to remind you that Iowa (where I grew up but no longer reside) was the 4th state to legalize same sex marriage, and by Supreme Court decision at that. Not a bullshit referendum that got passed and then reversed and then passed again...
The Court looked at the State Constitution and the current marriage forms and said, "Hey, wait a minute! These forms should say "Partner 1" & "Partner 2," not "Husband" & "Wife." and that decision has stuck since 2009...
Yes, it is still dangerous to be "out" in the rural parts of Iowa where I grew up, but now if one gets beat up for being queer it is a hate crime.
When I was managing a gas station in metropolitan Iowa in 2009 the Company tried to tell me that I couldn't wear eye-liner because I was a man. I told them, "It makes my eyes pop and gender identity is a protected status in this state now. Go ahead and fire me if you want, but you'll hear from the ACLU & pay me a big fat settlement." They backed down & allowed me to wear makeup at work.
I should note that I am a straight male, my Associate is a straight female, if that makes any difference. It was Iowa's governmental decisions years before I met her that allowed me to learn this about myself without shame.
To quote a very dear friend of mine, "If you don't know if you're gay or not you won't know until you've sucked a dick."
I really just wanted some advice on how to get rid of all my beard... Surely there's someone on Topia who had a dark beard for a few years and then shaved it?
