It won't be anything like experiencing life in the correct 'gender role' (one of these days, someone will have to tell me what the 'gender role' for a woman is; I don't want to get out of my proper place after all >.>), it will be like being a man in a dress, because that's what everyone else will see me as
This sucks so much.
Are you required to wear skirts/dresses? Or could you get away with a more ambiguous presentation? Like, painting your finger nails, but not red? Leggings? Pink or purple T-shirt? Something that most people will read as "gay man" but you could argue as "female look" to the therapist? Would that feel less terrible?
