Office worker: So you’re Chris, right?
Me: So far. They haven’t approved my transition, so I’m not yet Christina.
Office worker (her eyes wide): Really?
On a sort of related note, is it wrong that I’d like to refer to a certain male-to-female transgendered person I’m aware of as “the most attractive former possessor of man-parts I know”?
