I don't really think about it. I just go into the women's bathroom and that's that. No one really says anything.
Might be best to just tread carefully all you can with that. Lest you encounter individuals like the couple of class acts on this post going out of their way just to talk shit about transgenders. Please don't let them get you down. They're only revealing far more about themselves than they are you.

@Ducky i just don't speak unless i absolutely have to. I'm afraid my voice will give me away
@apersonnamedit I would advise taking the same approach online, to these ignorant fools attacking you. They're not worth it.

Its ok to have gender dismorphia just dont force it on everyone els

@Smoothsailing121 im not forcing it on anyone
Are you new to this?
How far along are you in transition?
How skilled are you at dressing as a woman?
Do you know how to dress to suit your body type, personality and the occasion or place?

I was recently chatting to an SW man of over 80 who loves to crossdress. He is very tall, broad shouldered and obviously born with a male body. He wears a gigantic water-filled bra, tarty makeup and a bleached blonde wig - all incredibly obvious. He tells me he has never had even one bad reaction in his local area. People just smile.

I think people are getting far more open minded - but it does depend a fair bit on where you live.

@hartfire i haven't started hormones yet though i pass well as is and im great with hair and makeup and i tend to either dress baggy or form fitting based on how i feel that day.
@apersonnamedit Sounds like you'd be absolutely fine using the Ladies.
One is in a cubicle no matter what the need is - no latrines - hence complete privacy.
Women are usually very polite with each other in there, mostly silent and minding their own business,
very little chat, but sometimes it does occur - a bit of small talk in a warm tone of voice.

I had one very nice interaction not long ago.
I was on the loo. I heard a couple of other women arrive and go into cubicles.
Then the sound of a huge fart and, "sorry!".
The other woman laughed and said, "better here than in the shopping centre!"
I spoke up, "besides, it creates a nice sense of community."
They burst into uproarious laughter.
Once we'd all come out to wash our hands, it turned out we knew each other.
We really are a community in our area.

I think it makes others have anxiety that you are in there.

@Smoothsailing121 im not a predator
Smoothsailing121 · 26-30, M
@apersonnamedit the signs are there as you prefur to make women uncomfortable for your own prefrence
apersonnamedit · 22-25, T
@Smoothsailing121 i think i pass well and nobody even knows im trans
CassandraSissy · 22-25, T
I always use the ladies, sweetie....even at work; people know I'm transgender but, hey, we use the stalls, right? So nobody can see each other's bits and pieces....unlike the men's toilets.

Don't worry, do what you need to. Smile....and get the hell out of dodge! *Grins*

Women's room sucks anyways cause they be wanting to carry on conversations and it is just nastier than the men's rooms.
