45:28 Question of the Week

"I am currently in transition M2F and I have encountered a huge problem: Body hair removal. I am not very hairy but I can't shave because my skin cuts and burns easily. I tried waxing in a salon and had to take anti-inflammatory pills after. The only thing that works for me so far is Veet hair removal spray. The thing is it only works for a day or two and sometimes it burns too. I can't afford laser. What can I do? Any expert advice on body hair removal would be welcome. This really is a big issue! "

Her academic and creative work focuses on gender, and she was recently ranked ranked the 11th strongest woman in the country in the bench press. She recently published a book of poems titled The Proving Grounds and is also the author of many other works. She writes, "My work can be summed up as a third wave feminist interpretation of the cultural function of women's sports..."
