Scotty doesn’t know, don’t tell Scotty, I should tell Scotty, but why should I? Why does Scotty need to know I’m trans non-binary anyway? I mean, it’s not a big deal, it just is. I’m not changing any more than I would have had I kept wearing the cisgender mask.

Surely, he’s going to notice my voice getting deeper. Oh yeah, that’s the part I haven’t mentioned — I’m on HRT taking testosterone. But it doesn’t change me.

Then again. maybe if I tell him, he’ll stop misgendering me. Or maybe he won’t. I guess that’s the conundrum.
