Unlike gay, lesbian, and bisexual individuals, gender diverse/trans disclosure and outing issues take on different considerations. You can never truly know someone's gender, gender experience, or anything else about a person's private medical history, unless that person tells you directly. Further, do you really need to know? How is it your business?

(Note: When it comes to trans and gender diverse folk, often, the idea of individual ownership and rights - to one's body, privacy, history, property, medical records, things we so often take for granted on a daily basis - cisgender folk lose sight of this very innate right and assume that the transgender Body and Person, does not, in fact belong exclusively to that person. Literature on this, trans embodiment, and related topics available - let's talk.)

The truth of a person's story can only come from that person themself. If you are curious. ask them directly rather than speculate or ask others (that individual, of course, reserves the right to answer).

If you have questions or would like to continue dialogue, please feel free to contact me! Thank you.
