Whoops, it's been a while!
So here's a weird thing. I have always had fairly broad shoulders for my build, though I've been trying hard to keep them strong but small to help me pass better. That said, I don't really expect to pass when I'm in male drab. And so it was really surprising when I greeted my wife with a hug and kiss at the airport, and my wife told me after we both got back in the car that she was pretty sure the people in the car behind us must have thought we were lesbians because they were giving us the evil eye. My back was to them, but I guess my wife caught sight of them as we were kissing. In a way, I was sort of happy to be mistaken for a gal, but it also drove home how much my eventual transition is going to affect how people perceive my wife - even though she isn't really changing anything at all! sigh.
