I go as cisgender. I fear what might occur if folks understand I’m trans.
Individuals have all the time instructed me that I’ve a pleasant face. And for many of my life, that wasn’t a lot of an issue — till I transitioned.
Once I go away my residence, nobody appears to know or suspect that I wasn’t assigned feminine at delivery. Every time, I’m anxious that I’ll be acknowledged as trans and fearful about what which may imply for my girlfriend’s and my security, particularly as a result of there aren’t many visibly trans folks residing in my suburban neighborhood.
