Gender rules everything around us. From the way people treat us, to the clothes we wear, to the prices we pay for personal hygiene products, there's no denying that the gender binary—though it may be a construct—remains a deeply influential force in most of our lives. And no one is more aware of this than transgender people who transition from the gender assigned to them at birth.

Someone recently asked this question on Reddit: "Trans people who currently pass as their desired gender, how have people treated you differently depending on your perceived gender?" These 16 trans people weigh in on the ways their interactions with others have changed since they transitioned.

The answers reveal a lot about the way society perceives someone differently if they're "male" vs. "female."

1.) From deepwoods_cryptid:

Every once in awhile I’ll have women glance back at me if I walk behind them for a bit. I’ve even had women cross the street to avoid me walking behind them. I’m not even a big dude (5’3).

Otherwise, honestly, I haven’t noticed much difference other than people calling me “chief” or “buddy” more. Then again, I was pretty boyish even pre-transition.
