It may be that he was jealous and would like to be able to express his fem side like you.
I have seen this before when a macho type was making fun of some TG’s while he was with a group of friends. Later I found him on his own and I challenged him as to why he thought it fun. We had a long sensible discussion on gender and self identification and I found him very receptive, even to the point of asking me ‘what it was like’ and the likes … needless to say he went away with something to think about and maybe he progressed onto dressing .. but I am sure he wont be unkind to another TG.
I have been out for many years and pass most of the time.I used to be upset it I was read, but now I just think to myself that I have brought a little point of conversation to some ones lives and made their day brighter for it, as well as showing some Trans Visibility in the community.
(PS – for TG read CD in the US.. … I tend to use the UK terminology..)
