Recently I wrote a post concerning the term "passing" and it's relevance to transgender women and/or cross dressers today. Georgette wrote in with this response:
"I'm not sure the idea of "passing" will ever go away. I see so many on-line posts of Trans People still asking/worrying about it. And it is not just transgender women, many younger trans men are asking the same. The ones that give up and say they will never pass say that's OK as I will own being a transgender woman. But I wonder if they could pass would they still own being a trans woman."
