Is the very concept of passing troubling?

Is the Very Concept of “Passing” Problematic?

I found this short essay linked from Facebook the yesterday about “passing” (as another gender). It’s well worth a read if you have five minutes and spend any degree of time contemplating the concept of passing, the conclusion that your gender validity is not linked to your ability to pass or passing to alleviate dysphoria.

I wish I’d written it, because I basically agree almost entirely with the narrative.
