seeing his new face for the first time.
For several years, I have toyed with the idea for a story where a straight man finds himself with a woman’s face. The idea was that he would otherwise be largely unchanged, but he would have the delicate features of a very beautiful and feminine woman.
How would the world react to him? Would he be able to stay the same man as always? Or would his face reshape his identity?
I went just a little further when I wrote this story- he also has a woman’s voice, but the question remains the same: what would life be like for a man who looks like a woman?
