As a trans person, why should it be my responsibility to warn someone that I’m going to experience a physical change? Is it to save their poor little soul from the shock and surprise of seeing me change? Aren’t we constantly in a state of flux and change anyway?

This question arose from my very real dilemma about telling one particular person that I am on hormone replacement therapy.

I haven’t felt safe enough, or inspired enough, to share my journey with them. That’s messed up but it speaks volumes.
