“I took a photo of my shaven armpits. As a cisgendered male, I feel very pressured to keep them unshaven even though I feel a lot better shaving them. When I was still in National Service, I got a lot of stick for being ‘姑娘‘ (gu niang) for doing what is considered a conventionally feminine act, and I think I didn’t get more stick only because I otherwise presented myself in a heteronormative manner. I wish I could just be what I feel like being without making everything political or ascribed with a meaning.”
