"Passing" is a very important concept for trans people who deal with the outside world. That is because many people out there are Neanderthals, who hunted animals with spears, played with fire, and seldom lived past 35. However, if you have advanced to at least Cro-Magnon status, please don't promote that survival strategy where it is unneeded. If you have evolved to where you believe you can see beauty wherever it might be found, then make an effort to see it in trans people regardless of whether they pass or not. It is not such a difficult thing to do, and it is such a welcome and refreshing place to be thought of as beautiful or desirable regardless of this whole concept of passing.
