What Does Going Stealth Mean?

This week’s Terminology Tuesday is going to explain what it means to be going stealth.

Going stealth is a term in the trans* community used to describe passing as a gender identity which doesn’t align with your biological sex to the point where everyone thinks you are cis. 

For example, say you are a trans male. You could be in a conversation with someone you have never met before, and that person could refer to you as a boy. This is because you are passing well enough as a male to be perceived as a male.
