What's there to hide?
We’ve all got that one thing that we don’t like to show off. Whether it be an extra toe or a weird-looking skin tag that looks like Homer Simpson on your back, plenty of us have a physical oddity that we’re not particularly proud of. Sometimes out of shame and sometimes out of consideration for others being freaked out, we keep them hidden from even our closest friends and family members.
How bad can it really be, though? Are these little features going to ruin your life if people find out about them? Shouldn’t we be comfortable in our own skin?
At least for the folks in the following gallery, they’ve taken their first steps in publicly acknowledging their “special traits” that would otherwise go undetected. What’s interesting is that what may seem like a big deal to you may be a laughably minuscule feature to someone else… or maybe it’s best they just keep their shoes on while at the beach…
The Extra Toe
I have 11 toes. My pinky toe on my right foot is basically a double wide. It has two bones in it and two nails that are connected. Because of it I never wear flip flops or sandals. (brommand0)
Probably only means you’re a better swimmer than most!
Pit Stain Pitfalls
I have extremely sweaty armpits. I’m not a super sweaty person, and never have body odor, but my armpits just sweat waterfalls. I’ve had to wear shirts my whole life that won’t show sweat stains. Doesn’t matter if it’s hot either, I’ll sweat in 10 degree weather. (Tsnav)
Hyperhidrosis is actually very common, particularly in young people.
I have a third and fourth nipple. No, they don’t have the same sensation as your average nipples. (dandeysonmyarm)
Fun fact: We all had nipples down our whole chest in early embryonic stages of development. Sometimes they just hang around!
