Natasha, write that book about your experiences!! Or at least write a few anecdotes for CDH.
My experiences are the almost the same as friend Amy Myers posted here in this thread, for the four months since I first ventured out en femme. One man in my neighborhood objected to me as Alexis (I was driving past him on a sidewalk) but I don’t know him and doubt he knows my house. I’ve been out to dinner twice in Hillcrest, San Diego’s LGBT hub. Between longer times to look at seated me, and likely many prior encounters with CD customers in general, I’m sure the Hillcrest staffs figured me out. Nobody was negative but I obtained the all-important “ma’am” only while walking to my car.
