Showing your ID

<< < (2/3) > >>

Last night i wore  skin tight shorts over my  black hose outfit see my galeria, and shown my id... doorman look at me and i said, if you look agsin it mesns i fid i great transformation... he indeed smiled and said have a great night mami.
I felt great.... mission accomplished.

I lost the fear of getting recognized, i came to the conclusion that once you master your makeup, and balance your curves  and learn your moves... its very difficult to get recognized by someone you know... and those that you don't they won't recognize you if next day you talk to them in man mode... is very improbable.

I have not had to show any official ID (male) since presenting as female, except at hotel registrations this year and that was likely to get a driver’s license number and check my address to the registration information.  I had no issues.  If asked about any name or appearance discrepancy, I suppose I would say that I am MTF transitioning.

Otherwise, the closest I got to needing to show an ID was when I did have car trouble once.  I only had to show my roadside assistance card and had no issues. 

There will be a time though when I may need to and by then I may have updated IDs.  I drive carefully, I do not buy alcohol, I do not cash checks in person, and I do not go to clubs.

I spent about ten to fifteen years going out as me before I ever changed my name so during that time I did show my ID many times, which looked nothing like me. If I ever was feeling weird about it I would try and say something comical like, if you look closely you'll notice that I had a different hairstyle when that photo was taken. People would generally giggle, hand me back my ID, and say have a good day.

I can't really imagine that someone would keep your ID if they thought it wasn't actually you. Like is there some sort of secret organization of official ID checkers that has to keep your ID if they suspect it is false? What would they do with your ID then? Would they post it on the wall? Would they send it off to the official ID database? Why would they keep it? For what purpose? Sorry my snarky got loose this morning......

This.

I don't have any problems at all, and I go out with my girlfriends all the time to a place that cards me.  I just tell them, "Don't judge!"  (with a big smile), and they chuckle and hand it right back.  It was stressful the first couple times, but I now realize that nobody cares.

Now, if you are acting like a jerk, you may not get that response.  Be nice to people, and they'll usually be nice back.

My ID photos resemble me, and no problem at all. People do not pay attention to my printed given name sounding male. In the airports, I pass the entrance by bio-identification (fingerprint). It is very rare to show my ID.

I remember that the official called me 'Sir' in the immigration desk at a Chinese airport, but it was far better than interrogating or even detaining me. He looked scaring, but I realized that even Chinese people are far more open-minded than people usually assume.
