While Kylie’s stance on gender still isn’t 100% clear to us, today’s update shows that he’s on a quite different page from Rain. Whereas Rain probably would’ve kept her secret forever if she could, Kylie sees sharing the secret as being a load off his mind; as he is, he feels like he’s lying to his new friends. He never realized he passes so well. And while he likes that he does, regrettably, he seems ashamed of it too.
But… no matter how conflicted he is, it’s bloody hard to come out to people! Especially when your four new friends are all such completely well-adjusted people without gender or sexuality issues… or so Kylie thinks.

Why do I get the feeling that it's a really embarrassing costume that has been grabbed?
Because it is.
I'm just as conflicted as Ky, but not only in the opposite direction, but backwards as well. I don't pass yet, at all. I haven't started transitioning yet, and no matter how much I want to, I have too much stupid crap I don't even care about to focus on what I feel really matters to me.
My conflict comes from wanting them to see me as a girl, but knowing that it'll never happen, so my options are to either get it over with and tell the others, or wait it out until I can pass, then just start it over from then. I know dropping it all on at once has some major risks, but I've always been a risk taker when I care about what I'm doing. Besides, I love shock value, and that seems as shocking as they come.
