So im transmasculine(afab), I've known for a few years now; and I've had a lot of issues with passing throughout the 2-3 (maybe 3 1/2?) years I've known im trans. I've tried multiple different methods of masculine contour, many different binding methods, tried different hairstyles, I've even been working on my voice(which is the only thing I've "succeeded" with, and I still don't pass vocally). I've been called "ma'am" and "she" multiple times and me and my mom get called "ladies" all the time, and it really sucks.
I can't get a proper binder either because of spinal issues I inherited, and testosterone is out of the question for a number of reasons. Not to mention im not expected to grow past 5 feet 1 inch, maybe 5 feet 2 inches if im lucky, but im not gonna be that tall. I've tried to pass for years for it to fail every time, and its beginning to really upset me.:(
