Someone wrote…

The other day with my friends, the group of us were referred to as “gentlemen.” It took me a minute to realize I had “passed,” because in my mind, what else would I be? Of course I am male, of course me and my friends are gentlemen… it made me wonder how often I pass and don’t notice because it’s just so obvious and natural.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I wish my friends and I could pass that easily.
    Often I’ll be out with my FtM friends and it takes a while to realize peopl are talking to us when they address us as “ladies.” *sigh*

    I have the same problem as Lanthir – I hardly ever pass, but when i do it makes me all the more happy
