I’m not concerned about being mistreated. Everyone on my team is smart enough to avoid gross infractions like that. They’ll simply refuse to work with me. HR could compel them otherwise. If that happens they’ll find jobs elsewhere. Every one of them is highly skilled and would have no problem finding work. Replacing them would be a difficult task.
Flying under the radar as long as possible is the safest choice for me. I don’t feel like I’m giving up anything by doing so. I still get to be myself outside of work. Eventually the physical changes will become obvious. When that time comes I’ll reevaluate.
