      Perhaps I'm in the minority but I generally put on light make-up unless I'm just working around the house. Foundation, darken my eye brows a bit, gel eye pencil along the bottom of my eyes (normally blue), mascara, a bit of rouge on my cheeks to add a little color and then lipstick.   Each of us is different and going with some make-up helps tamp down my dysphoria so that's the way I ride. :-)

      Yeah.  The eyeliner, foundation,  lipstick, blush, eye shadow and whatever else they sell to gullible young women gets abandoned as we get older, but it also depends on the crowd.  My wife wears makeup whenever she leaves the house, chiefly foundation that blends with her skin, hides blemishes (not that she has anything of the sort, says her dutiful mate) and probably can't really be noticed.  And lip balm.  Neither can be particularly noticed.   Yesterday we ate out and our waitress, young sweet thing, had at least eyeliner and heavy-duty lip paint, seemingly one step beyond lipstick, sort of a shiny black.  And facial piercings, which tend to freak me out.   The women at church after 40 or so are subtle in their makeup.  Some of the younger ones are more, shall we say, colorful.

      I don't have the report, but there was a study on teenage suicide prevention programs.  The conclusion was interesting: telling kids that suicide was an option that they should not take caused more kids to kill themselves.  Help should be available, but over-broadcasting it apparently turns some kids suicidal.   "Real" trans kids do not need anyone to tell them they are trans.  Someone with other problems may be told that all they need to do is transition and their problem will go away, sort of like giving an appendectomy for a broken leg.  I was glad to see the detransitioning rate is as low as it is; stuff I had read indicated it was a lot higher.   I think kids should be told there are resources available but not be pushed, which apparently happens to some kids, according to the testimonies of some detransitioners.  Gender dysphoria is real but treating it is not the solution to every problem.   Someone may work out they are trans only after decades, and growing up in the wrong gender will generate comorbidities.    I think detransitioning would generate all sorts of problems, particularly if the individual transitions again (someone did this).  Physical, emotional, psychological problems.  Best to be mean and screen people as accurately as possible, which I think is being done.  Gatekeeping can be important in sorting out those who are trans from those who are, say, suffering from bipolar disorder.

      Indeed.  I also suspect that there are trans folks who may not know who they really are.   And also those who think they are, due to the increasing focus on the issue, when perhaps they might not be.  Trying to figure it out it's like trying to diagnose yourself on WebMD.

      Woman's t shirt, women's jeans, sneakers.  No bra.  My boobies are bigger without a sports bra, but it is a Catch-22.  I fail the pencil test, so I don't technically need a bra. Bra == girl, boobs == girl.  Thinking about just breaking the barrier, accepting I look this way and cannot fight it, and buying a nice pink top and a denim skirt.  It would cause a lot of uproar that I do not want to face.

      Maybe there's a reason, just sayin'

      Looks nice. I've never tried makeup.  One time my daughter put some on me, it was pretty bad.  But admittedly, the light was not so great.  IDK, I don't really notice any women my age with any.
