What do transgender people experience when they don't 'pass' in society? While the experience varies from person to person, not fitting into what is typically male or female comes with its own set of challenges. These 17 transgender individuals are opening up about how they feel when it comes to 'passing'. Here are their raw and honest confessions.

These are the struggles of not 'passing'.

1
I still don't pass 100% and I'm over a year on T. I'm getting tired of this and tired of people being able to tell I'm trans. I just want to be stealth.

You self-esteem really takes a hit.

2
The reason I won't send you a photo of me is because I'm trans, and don't pass. I can barely look in the mirror without crying so I'm not gonna try to take a photo of myself.

There is so much they have to do in order to feel safe and comfortable.

3
I'm sobbing because I'm trans and have a lot of dysphoria because I haven't had bottom surgery and I don't pass yet

It's an uphill battle.

4
Im trans (ftm) but I don't pass or have any friends who support me. I feel like just giving up and acting female for the rest of my life.

Safety is a concern.

Going to the park w/ my friend today. She knows I'm trans and warned me about my safety because I don't pass 100% male (I only look androgynous leaning male). Makes me sad that this is still an issue

It's a slow and difficult process

6
I'm trans (ftm) and I'm out to people yet they keep misgendering me and dead naming me

I know I don't pass but I'm too broke for the haircut and binder
