    I know a number of trans women. There's no one way to deal with body hair, but here's what many of them do.

    They start shaving their legs, all the way up if the hair is dark. They shave their arms if the hair is dark. Once they're at ease with that, they start shaving their bellies and chests if needed. At this point, they may order female or androgynous clothing and footwear online, buy a wig or grow their hair out, learn how to do makeup, etc. Often they "get all girly" and don't leave home. Which is fine.

    Facial hair they usually treat with multiple sessions of laser removal, or electrolysis. It's permanent, so they need to be sure the transition is right for them. If they opt for HRT--hormone replacement therapy-the body hair will become less and less, but the facial hair doesn't go fully away without killing the follicles. HRT will also rearrange fatty deposits and muscle development, as well as add breast tissue. Most of the trans women I know personally have not had surgery but do HRT.

    Why don't you get surgery first before you start cross dressing. Men that dress like woman is disturbing i mean a girl with a dick is wierd hurry up and get surgery

      Don't be a douchebag. Literally zero trans* people have surgery before transitioning socially.

      Not true. bigot if you don't believe in gender go all the way and don't call him phaggot. Your opionion is also completely ignorant about how a part of the brain is intersex and identify the body as one of the opposite sex.
      Don't be so self assured, you're not helping.

    Depilatory Creams, if you are not allergic. And Electrolysis.

    Shaving leaves stubble, it is uncomfortable and unsightly.
