Passing as Female

While it’s significantly easier and in many ways better to be androgynous not fitting into the gender binary is going to make dating significantly more difficult. Thus you instead want to change your appearance to become as feminine as possible and this can include superficial traits such as hair and clothing. Boymoding for too long is a bad idea since then you are stuck being a feminine man which is very much inferior to being a masculine woman, at some point you need to transition socially.

Being on female hormones while trying to present as a male is probably not going to make your life easier, at least not short-term. If you are not willing to ever transition socially you probably shouldn’t start HRT in the first place. The last thing you want to do is to half-ass your transition where you basically transition to nowhere in an attempt to deal with gender dysphoria or because you have some sexual reasons for doing so

After you start HRT and begin Voice Training you might want to start a social transiton.

Top 5 things you can do to pass better

  1. Do some makeup! Mascara is a 5 minute fix that has tons of feminine allure. Pick 2-3 things to do before you leave the house
  2. Fix your facial hair. If you have a 5 o’clock shadow, cover it up, concealer, whatever. Women don’t have a beard shadow. Make sure your brows are trimmed, especially if you have a unibrow - keep ‘em separated!
  3. Hips Don’t Lie - Choose clothing and do exercises that help to even the line between your shoulders and hips. Female figures usually have proportions with hips equal to or larger than shoulder width
  4. Smell Good! Proper hygiene like washing yourself, your clothes, and applying good smells like light lotions with feminine scents (flowery) and perfumes can instantly trigger “feminine” perceptions
  5. Sometimes, just stop talking. Being awkward and rambling on about nothing can be a social tell, particularly if you are concerned about your voice passing. Also, you don’t need to tell everyone you are trans, all the time! Be selective, there are negative people out there waiting to tear you down
