Recommended Posts

First off what is it? I’ve only heard of this 2 times once from an introduction in the site and once from a YouTube video saying to not use it because if you do you are giving someone (I forgot who but most likely the people that own it) permission to I think use your face 2nd is it safe? as in no one is using my face and if it is what can i do on it?

This is absolutly true.

 

Quoted from there terms and conditions.

 

Quote

"You grant FaceApp a perpetual, irrevocable, nonexclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, fully-paid, transferable sub-licensable license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, publicly perform and display your User Content and any name, username or likeness provided in connection with your User Content in all media formats and channels now known or later developed, without compensation to you. By using the Services, you agree that the User Content may be used for commercial purposes. You further acknowledge that FaceApp's use of the User Content for commercial purposes will not result in any injury to you or to any person you authorized to act on its behalf."

 

 

Therefore. They can do whatever they want with your photo. It can be used to advertise dogfood if they require it  and there is not a thing you can do about it. So putting that in perspective. If the face of a famous person is used in an advertisng campaign they will get paid a kings ransom for it. But if they use your picture you get nothing.

 

Another example. Say for instance you are in that scary place called the closet. Its quite a dramatic way to get outed by having your face on every billboard in the country in some advertising campaign for products you may not even agree with or want to endorse . It could happen. Never trust the add mans expertise

 

Is something is free In reality it normally is not.

 

You may say "I dont care. Im not really bothered if im outed" But you will when the time comes. You hear the storys on how traumatic that can be. Do not underestimate it. Is it really worth it for seeing what a computer generated face that vaguely resembles you looks like?

@kelly sinclair The terms of service start out by stating, "Except for the license you grant below, you retain all rights in and to your User Content, as between you and FaceApp. Further, FaceApp does not claim ownership of any User Content that you post on or through the Services."

The statement seems innocuous enough, and it sounds as though anyone who uses FaceApp retains full rights to their content. However, the "license you grant below" section immediately dispels that notion.

Read the  fine print.

 

 

This means that while FaceApp acknowledges they do not own the content that they are creating, they are legally, perpetually, and irrevocably allowed to do whatever they want with said content. Not only can they use the content in whatever way they want, they also state that you waive all rights if their use somehow causes damages to you.

 

Im not making it up Kelly.

  . As for me I dont care if I'm outed  but some may so

 

 

Im glad the many storys i have seen on here and beyond of people being outed and losing friends, family and loved ones and the long term damage this can do to someone will not effect you.. What a blessing that is.

 

Sadly for many others this is not the case. You only have to look in this forum to see the damage it can do to someone

Does anyone know any app or software that would show what i looked like if i was a vegatable or maybe a fruit.

 

I always wondered what i would look like if i was a Potato or Turnip or evan a beuatiful Mango

 

Now that would be something

Folks while these apps may appear to be fun, they are data collection schemes and you lose the rights to the output.  I would suggest focusing on the face you have rather than some imaginary face you will never attain.  (only a surgeon can change you, within reason)  While it may seem fun to dream these apps don't really do much for your psyche.  Your beauty comes from within.

This. This. And This.   The “Face” app is known to gather your data. Be very wary especially if you’re not 100% out.

      I'm feeling a little better today.  Susan is spot on here.  For me, right now, it is a matter of financial security.  I just want to be out of the business of paying interest.  I had to deal with paying a whole year of taxes in April and I'm just now recovering from that.  I need to build up some savings, or rather financial progress, before I can justify spending any more.   My plan today is to schedule an electrolysis session to real feel what that is like.  Then my thought is to wait about 2 years to jump into this.  At that time, I should have a new roof on my house and have my mortgage below $200K.  And if I can have a nice emergency fund/buffer in my finances, then I should be able to feel good about spending money on this venture.   I plan on doing a full transition and paying out of pocket for the whole thing.  If I do it at all that is.  I have a good career.  My career path has been shaky.  It's been a rough journey.  And whether I transition or not, I'm going to have a frugal retirement.  But I absolutely can afford to do this.  I've worked it out in my budgets.  I think that the more financially sound I become and the closer to retirement I get, the more I'll feel that this is the right path for me.  The activities that I've setup for myself in retirement are absolutely free and even have the possibility of earning income.  Although I could imagine having a better house, there is no need for that.  My house is wonderful and has architectural features.  I drive a $5,000 car and work from home.  I don't even need the car and have spent a good 20% of my adult life without a car.  I biked 700 miles last year.   I don't know what else I would spend my money on.  I just know that I don't want to be spending it on interest!   The big question is will I still want to do this in 2 years?  I'm curious about how healthy I'll feel in 2 years.  I'm a little nervous that HRT and surgery would be  bad for my health.  Are there stories on this site about people who have had bad outcomes with surgery?

      Remembering my grandfather's, the one I lost and the one I never met. Also, remembering friends of the family. But I don't usually reserve the holiday for time off, I usually always work.😔

      After I started HRT, it was about two months before the girls had grown enough that they were at risk of being noticeable.  By that time, I needed to wear a bra.  (Not for support: five years later, I still struggle to fill an A cup.  More for motion control.)  I was able to hide it under thick winter shirts, but as the weather warmed in spring, that became less of a possibility.    The final straw was playing in a concert band's spring concert.  The uniform was white top/black bottom.  There was no way to hide a bra under a white shirt, so I had to go out and buy a (man's) white tank top to go under it to hide the bra.    Shortly thereafter, I ended the charade and came out, exactly three months after starting HRT.

      I'd like to preface (that's how you spell that?!  Who knew?) this by saying that I know everyone responds differently, at different rates and with a staggering range of ultimate outcomes, so I would take any reply with a grain of salt.  That said, how long might someone have before they start to raise eyebrows amongst those aren't "in the know", but have known you for years.  And how long might someone have before... say... a lesbian leaning bisexual sister that married a trans man and has been close friends with several (trans men) but has (I'm relatively sure) had little interaction with trans women, (same for me, runs in the family I guess) start to ask questions, if at all?  Though I'm assuming that's unlikely.   Why is this one so hard to hit submit on!?  Huge wave of anxiety!

      I looked it up and they actually have an English version of their website! I thought they were French but they're just in Europe. As I said i didn't test their gym binder, but I quite like their extra-compressive one.
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      @Mmindyis correct.  This goes back all the way to the Revolution.  Earlier, even.  On one side of my husband's family, every generation has served...all the way back to the colonial militia in Jamestown in the early 1600s.  Kind of interesting to study the history.
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      To me, Memorial Day is about those who served and died, and also about those who survived but carried pain and trauma afterwards.  We should remember the cost of maintaining our way of life, and also the cost of careless politics.  And our leaders should see the cost, and be inspired to choose peace where possible.     My husband served in the National Guard. Won't talk about it.  His father was in the Army in Vietnam, and his mother was a military physician.  They don't talk about it.  There's something unspeakable that those in service go through, and often it is a family tradition.  This weekend, they're decorating the graves of military veterans... including friends and family.  While we're enjoying sports, barbecue, and time off....we enjoy it because others have secured this time and place for us.
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      @LearningWhoIAm I really feel for you.  It must be awful to have such a negative reaction.    However, all is not lost.  Your husband cried because he loves you and your life together.  It is possible that love may prevail.     Based on what he said, it seems like he has two issues.  He's unable to absorb the idea that your personality isn't changing, and he is worried about being or appearing to be gay.  The first one can work itself out in time. The second may take some counseling, but he may be able to overcome that also.   IDK what vows you said at your wedding (if any).  Mine were the standard set of "for richer/poorer, in sickness/health, etc" until death.  Men often live by a code of honor, so returning to a specific promise like that might influence him, or at least begin a calmer discussion?

      Tragically, that's me always. My "tan" is a scattering of small freckles, no closer than one inch apart or I burn like a magnesium flare. The sun is NOT my friend.   If you don't already, I'm also going to suggest moisturizer. It's a girl's best friend for maintaining a youthful and healthy appearance.   As always, the laughter is free. Glad you appreciated it sweetie!   Hugs!

      @Jackie C. The "white-out" Comment had me in stitches!   I feel the pain!  That's me in winter but I'm a "day walker" and tan an orangish color come summer.  Luckily, I'm freckled everywhere but my face, oddly they faded permanently after a couple seasons of roofing in my twenties.  The sun has done me no favors (it's not THATa bad but...)20 years of a beard however, saved the lower half of my face.  Problem is, there is now a notable complexion difference at my beard line and I'm certain it would call attention, should I ever go out without a mask.  I may never go out in public without a mask again, even if I never come out and boy-mode for the rest of my life...  Sublime!   I just need one damned girlfriend!   Don't get me started on the anxiety feel walking down the makeup isle.  What the hell does an orange girl do for foundation!?  Try finding that on YouTube.   Anyway, thanks for the advice, which I will take and the laugh, which was much needed.   Much luv
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      @Vidanjali Awesome!  Glad you already have projects, and celebratory ones at that.  Cute shirt too!  If I was a bit bolder I'd totally wear one ☺️
    • Jackie C.
      Whelp, I'm "can use white-out as concealer" pale, so I think I feel what you're saying. On my skin, a little bit goes a long way. I usually just do some eyeliner, MAYBE some eye-shadow, lipstick and then call it quits.   As a ginger, if you're freckled... you've got two choices: Either do what I do, or run concealer over everything to cover them up. Personally, I adore freckles but you have to do what feels right for you.   Hugs!
