Are you afraid to show your femme self because you don't think you'll pass as a woman?
In this blog, I'd like to share a few thoughts about "passing" ...
First things first: I believe that everybody has the potential to pass.
But let's face it - it's not always easy!
It could take years to master all the subtleties of walking, talking, and acting like a woman. You might even require surgery to be truly passable.
That means that unless you plan to live as a woman full time, trying to become 100% passable just isn't practical.
Rather than getting hung up on passing vs. not passing, I suggest you make it your goal to "blend in" instead.
Blending in means you look girly enough NOT to stand out in a negative way - even if you aren't 100% passable.
Most people don't scrutinize everybody around them, so unless there's something glaringly off about you, you are unlikely to attract a second glance.
Does this mean everybody will think you are a genetic woman? Probably not. But it doesn't matter.
The happiest crossdressers and transgender women I know don't care whether they pass or not. They care about being themselves.
Passing is great when it happens, but there's nothing wrong with being seen as the classy crossdresser or transgender woman that you are!
As long as you choose the right environment and present yourself well, you are likely to be met with acceptance.
I hope this helps!
