    Hi guys. I've just come back from drinking with my friends and I am feeling very depressed about my face. I've always had a very feminine face and I only started to become very insecure about it recently. I know that it shouldn't matter what other people think and such but I can't help but feel extremely paranoid when talking to someone now. I feel like they're judging me on the femininity of my face. I do believe that gender norms are bs and that the way we act and our look should not be inextricably linked with our sex. I guess I'm just feeling a bit meh. Any suggestions for coping mechanisms so I can be more confident when in public?

    Grow a beard to look more manly? That would be my solution.

    Maybe try out a shorter hair cut, grow a beard, dress more 'masculine' etc..
    Don't feel paranoid when speaking to someone though, they probably just...don't care.
