Asking My Mum about Waxing My Legs?

I'm male, so this is kind of challenging for me. I'm unsure on whether or not she will get angry. She's seen me in a dress before and she wasn't happy about it (claimed it to be "confronting" and then talking to me about it all night and then the next day). I'm 16 - 17 in less than a month.

If it helps get a better idea of my mother; she told me after realising I cross-dress that she's "sorry" and that she "just needs time". In terms of cultural context; I'm West Australian. I want to be simple; "Hey mum, could you please wax my legs?". But I fear she may say something like "YOU'RE A BOY! BOYS DON'T DO THAT!!" and then cause a massive issue or something.

Anything is appreciated.

If you are 17, why not just do it yourself? Is she really going to notice your legs? (In my state in the USA, that is considered an adult).
Or, tell her your are thinking of it and what is her opinion?

My daughters started shaving when they felt they needed to. That was one thing I never got worried or upset about. Some parents worry about the shaving, I was more concerned on the bigger items--who their friends were, where they were, curfews, grades and such.

She is going to get upset. As she accepts the fact that you are what you are, she will get used to the idea. Give her time.

I'd bring up the subject and allow her some time to consider, reflect since it's new for her. Then when she has had some time (a few days), tell her - you want to speak to her one on one together as a friend more of a mom at the moment.

Hope it works out.

so if you join the swim team and become a real good swimmer, you will be required to shave your legs :) that could be an interesting out.

i think I would say to you what I say to all girls who come on here asking about that - just do it. Best to ask for forgiveness than permission in life sometimes, and it's your body. IF you wear long pants around her she won't notice anyway
