Conformity as Identity or Survival?

I’ve known trans women who have been out for years that still hesitate to wear “women’s clothing” out in public because of the potential for bad responses. Hell, before I ever knowingly met another trans woman in my life, I knew butch cis women with the exact same worries about getting side-eyed or harassed if they put on a skirt or too much makeup, and those fears weren’t unfounded. They’d get misgendered even by people who knew they were cis. People are cruel, y’all know that.

An excellent post, from Zinnia Jones.
