I am afraid of being seen by anyone I know. Some won’t accept, some will make fun of me, and others will shoot their mouth off at work.
I am not passable, right now, and need to work on my self image, of my weight. So, the weight comments will also hurt.
I think there is a basic human rights issue here. Women don’t have to pose as men if they wear trousers. Why should a man be ‘passable’ if he wears a skirt or a dress? You should be able to wear what you like, without being judged. Unfortunately, there are a lot of prudish people out there. They may complain about sexism and/or racism, but may still criticise cross-dressers. It’s wrong
