    Being unsure whether that person misgendered you because they were genuinely unsure of your gender, or because they intentionally chose to ignore it.

    ...when you're drunk with a friend and can't pronounce long words but remember the acronyms of the old protocol for transitioning and the new protocol (wpath) that is not being used yet where you live, and start a long rambling speech about the «six months of Mandatory Headshrinker» in order to get the «Divine Paperwork» and it sounds like Angelo Branduardi's song "Alla fiera dell'est" ("At the Eastern Fair").

    when you have surgery on your genitals and you and your surgeon research and consult on how it may effect future bottom surgery.

    Having a dressing crisis about whether to pack today, and whether the bulge looks realistic or not, and whether your trousers are too tight and you're 'showing off' too much. But feeling quite inadequate to not pack...

    Girls shave to make hair disappear. I shave to make them re-grow stronger.

    No kidding. I find myself telling people I'm 5'7, although i think I'm fairly close to 5'8. I'd gladly give up 6 inches or more. And these broad shoulders.

    I understand the broad shoulders, I'd give those up in a heartbeat, but I honestly don't think I'd want to lose any height. I'm on the tall side of AVERAGE for a woman, but still within average height. My height will have zero effect on my passability.
