Because this made me smile, and I wanted to share it.

There is this misbegotten notion that transmen and women are about playing dress-up and fooling people. But to be trans is to feel the truth so acutely you can’t fake it. It is to be so consumed with the truth of who you are that you are willing to risk everything to inhabit it. To refuse to be what other people have decided you areā€”this is an act of courage few individuals dare try. I know I didn’t.
