The lesson here is two fold, I think. First, no matter how “passable” a person might become and no matter how privileged they appear in that regard, they are likely still suffering from being misgendered from time to time.
This is another post about passing and being mis-gendered. Emma continues her thoughts, above, with this statement:
.....I see transgender women who are

financial affluence that’s permitted them the procedures I cannot afford that I

I have been with absolutely gorgeous transwomen who have had the financial resources to transform their bodies, yet they still (at least in their minds) feel that they are mis-gendered from time to time.
