I did, the cyber way. I never mind sharing my dope with someone.

Apologies! I'm just used to the lawless wastes that masquerade as the ASPD forum, where topic deviation is king. xD

At any rate, yeah, I'm still in the market for suggestions and insight on my original and subsequent posts.

Might that relate to them not knowing the real you? Could you have made a "strength" out of the fact that you weren't appearing as you really are? So you'd be giving up a psychological advantage by being open in this way.

That makes it harder to interact with certain social groups, makes it more difficult to get with the opposite (birth gender) sex and ultimately makes my life slightly less fun.

Until you learn how to influence people in new ways. And how to use your new appearance to your advantage. And so on. Those skills won't disappear just because you dress differently now.
We think too much and feel too little.
 More than machinery, we need humanity.
 More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness.
