This may seem trite, but I promise it is truly the hardest adjustment I had to make. How long did it take me to stop looking to put my hands in my pockets? Answer. Thirty two years and counting! Longer than I was in this world as a male.
Here are plus sides to adjustment too. My voice is similar to Bea Arthur’s so deeper than many. But I was the victim of an attempted mugging once, many years ago, in London. My male voice showed up then, and some soldierly language. I might not be as big as I was when I served, but I was definitely not very ladylike either.
I would not advise trying that tactic ladies. It could get you seriously hurt.
