I’ve never experienced hostility, luckily, even back when I was still mostly in the world in male mode.
It’s been years since I’ve actually been in male mode, since I’ve donated all my male clothes a long time ago, and am 100% of the time femme. I pretty much always dress to blend in when I’m out and about in the world, at least if I’m out doing normal, boring life things like shopping or other errands.
Every time I’ve gone clothing shopping, sales people have always been friendly and helpful, even when I may have looked like a deer in headlights, like when I first started buying makeup and needed lots of help.
I like to believe that people are becoming more accepting, and maybe that’s true, or maybe it’s because they just don’t care.
It’s definitely been helpful in making me feel more comfortable with myself
