9409) My girlfriend is a butch trans woman (her words, not mine.)
I’m a femme trans woman. She passes better than me, even with her shorter hairdo, lack of interest in makeup, and more typically ‘boyish’ clothes. It’s really saddening because it just goes to show that outside stylistic choices don’t necessarily make one look like a woman, and it has a lot to do with things outside of our control. I love her deeply but I feel a certain degree of jealousy towards her.
