Hmm...
So I've worked for this place for several years and am the senior dev (small place). I only just emailed him a few minutes ago to let him know I'm trans and will also be out for over a month in January - February for surgery.

Peak anxiety, man. AMA.

Edit: he's cool with it! He said he did pick up on some cues so...yeah! He offered to help tell my coworkers too, which is something I have to think about (but seriously awesome too). Looks like I'm keeping my job!

I have no clue. I hope it’s not a “you’re fired” reaction, but I’ll be ok even if I’m let go.

I’m hoping he’s picked up on the few clients over the years who thought I was a woman (not a lot of them, but still) and that it might soften the shock.

I’ll update everyone here once I get a response.

Goodness gracious, great balls of lightning!
Do you think Nintendo will ever make another F-Zero game?

Are you afraid you might reveal some secret you have or just act in embarrassing ways after they sedate you coming out of surgery?

Wat. No.

I mean at this point I have no secrets left to tell.






Or do I?

What employer would fire you for being trans? Of course you're gonna keep your job. It would be discrimination to fire someone for being trans or becoming trans man.

Not in my state. It’s also a small business, so there’s not federal protection either (from what I managed to Google).

Do you have any idea of what his reaction will be, or is it a complete shot in the dark?

Read update. He was cool with it. I had no idea if I was going to keep my job when I sent it, though.

I had figured it would be for not working for over a month, not for being trans.

Well that's pretty fucked. At least your boss is cool.

I'm glad to hear it. I want your incompetence to get you fired, not your existence.
