I was venting to a good friend about how I was feeling stressed so she offered to meet me at a local Gelato and Sorbet place. It was a perfect quick night out. I decided to wear a top that I fell in love with at Kohl’s a while back but had not really had a chance to wear. We walked around town a little too. I was feeling very happy with my outfit and confident with my look. At this point it really does not matter much to me if people “read” me as transgender, but I do prefer to “pass” in general to most people that are passing by me. I just think it decreases the odds of me running into someone who would be dumb enough to openly harass me. If that ever happens, I do carry military grade mace with me now. I hope I never have to use it.
