I have total sympathy…but I have to say height is not a block to being ‘passable’ I’m a straight 6′ (was 6′ 2″ for most of my life) And it isn’t the deciding factor (or weight) I was stood in the Chemists the other day (drug store) and this redhead bombshell walked in. She had to be 6′ 4″ and cis as far as I could tell. My knees almost buckled at her femininity. Her height even added to it. Being tall/heavy, you will never be average or blend in but that’s not everything.
Marlene Dietrich had a deep gravelly voice and she was all woman.
In my view being passable is in your own head and the way you carry yourself. If you believe you are all woman, so will others. Work it…live it…own it.

Do you see yourself ever fully and openly declaring yourself a woman, and if so do you plan a party / ceremony?
