“Passing as a woman” is the Holy Grail for many crossdressers and transgender women.
But it is really a goal worth pursuing?
If you’ve been afraid to show your feminine side for fear of not “passing,” it might be time to rethink your priorities.
I believe everybody has the potential to pass, but let’s face it… it’s not always easy!
It could take years to master all the subtleties of walking, talking, and presenting yourself as a woman. You might even require surgery to be truly passable in all situations.
That means that unless you plan to live as a woman full time, trying to become 100% passable just isn’t practical.
Rather than getting hung up on passing vs. not passing, I suggest you make it your goal to “blend in” instead.
Blending in means you look feminine and harmonious enough not to stand out in a negative way – even if you aren’t 100% passable.
Most people don’t scrutinize everybody around them, so unless there’s something glaringly off about you, you are unlikely to attract a second glance.
Does this mean everybody will think you are a cisgender (genetic) woman? Probably not. But it doesn’t matter.
The happiest crossdressers and transgender women I know don’t care whether they pass or not. They care about being themselves.
Passing is great when it happens, but there’s nothing wrong with being seen as the classy crossdresser or transgender woman that you are!
As long as you choose the right environment and present yourself well, you are likely to be met with acceptance.
Now I’d love to hear from YOU!

I love being cross dressed and I will pass cause I got all the surgery I need.
Hy, I find it’s more of a society caused thing why I don’t feel I pass completely. On the outside all my facebook friends think I’m a cisgender woman. For me it feels great, but also sad because now I don’t want to give up my new found status as cisgender passable by coming out.❤️
First off passing is having confidence in yourself
To pass would be loverly especially every time but being serious and honest about myself, if I could blend in comfortably then that would be a better goal to aim for.

Like many, I would today not go out if not thinking I would “pass”; anyway when nicely dressed and makeup done I feel like a female so no worry!!
That’s the way I feel about. Of course, to be as passable as possible is my goal with emphasis on ‘as possible. That’s pretty broad, and personally, that’s good enough for me. One the advantages of starting older, is that I don’t have to worry too much if I’m not drop dead gorgeous. That’s ok. The point is being feminine!!!
