Default Re: Return to Gender 101

You may have heard the term "Can/Can't pass for X". What that means is that the person who is other in whatever way cannot be easily identified as other, and therefore remain invisible.

A trans-woman built like a linebacker looking for size 12 shoes is going to be othered while shopping, while another trans woman who is petite and fine boned in the size 8 aisle might remain invisible.
