I have shopped en femme a couple of times. In the UK, I ventured into M&S once and browsed the sale rails but didn’t buy, then went in TK Maxx for a browse. Bought a purse. No issues. After a visit to the cinema I popped into Asda, for tights or stockings but I I forgot the pin for my femme card. I’m sure the assistant that came over clocked me, but she didn’t embarrass me.
Do you mind me asking how you went about getting a ‘femme’ bank card and whether it was difficult?
