Don't think Annie has stretch marks? I can guarantee she does. An unfortunate thing that you get for gaining and losing weight quickly.

What is Cindi's problem, anyways?

@bloody_rose: My bro got them when he shot up a foot overnight one summer.

My ex was never overweight but she grew absolutely ridiculous breasts in 20 minutes (some women have all the luck) and it made stretch marks.

They just kinda happen any time your skin cant figure out 'ok, what just happened and why do I not fit right any more'.

I wish I had stretch marks. Instead I just have a mass of surgical scars from issues years back. I don't ever show torso skin unless I trust someone.

@Clockwork: I've been trying really hard this week to come up with a good comment reply for this and I just can't come up with much useful to say. I don't know your situation, so I will just go with the guesses I have.

I would assume you are commenting on a FtM breast removal thing. My friend who I based Mal off of had the same issue. He found a really good, though very expensive, stuff online that people find to be very effective at reducing the scar visibility.

Likewise, up here in Vancouver there are a huge amount of (incredibly attractive) FtM dudes. They have calendars and stuff. Anyways, what a lot of them have done is get really bitchin tattoos that cover the scars.
Fun fact, a lot of cis women who have breast cancer are getting nifty tattoos for that too. Google image 'breast cancer tattoos' and you can see what I mean, it is really incredible.

Of course, all of this is fine and well, isn't it? That doesn't get to the root problem at hand, which is how we feel about ourselves. I am a cutter. My arms are brutally scarred, and I do not willingly show them to anyone unless I know them on a more-than-passing level. It is not to say that I am embarassed by them though, I just don't want people to feel sorry for me or whatever. The reason I bring this up is because when I do show them, or when I just take off my arm warmers in the summer and let people see what has happened, I do it with a sense of pride. I have survived a lot of mental trauma in my life, and I got through it. Those scars, even the ones still healing, are marks that I lived instead of died. And by others seeing them, they can know that even if we go through absolute hell and our bodies become scarred, we can come out the other side and be alive. Your surgical issues sucked - but you made it. So did I.

Take from all of this what you will.
