How do you know if you've overcome it or if you've failed to do so? I always do my best to help them feel better and try hard not to make them feel bad about themselves. It's just so hard to tell if it's enough. But I don't know. As much as I try to understand them or be kind to them, I can't shake the joy in knowing I'm not them. It gets to the point where I'd even read threads about non-passing problems to feel good about passing.>>8715935
That's true. I'll admit I wish for more passing trans people representation in the media, rather than people like Caitlyn Jenner or the lady who threatened to beat up a conservative reporter on live TV. Which isn't to say that hons should be silenced, but just to let people know we're not all like that. >>8715846
I'm sorry about your experiences, anon. Admittedly their behavior does grate on me sometimes as well. It's so common for older trans women to retain masculine personalities. I get that it's not completely their fault, due to decades of male socialization and being driven mad from repression, but it's still horrible behavior.>>8716030
How do I stop looking down on them, then? :(>>8716037
Well, I'm not asking you to believe me, but this is 4chan. /a/ was my first board from years ago, so it's just a habit for me to use anime pictures.
