    I'm a crossdresser, but I crossdress for gender reasons. I do NOT pass. I try to avoid the whole restroom issue--find unisex ones and the like--but, when I'm dressed, passing or not, going in a public men's room would be taking my life in my hands. Period. I don't get off going into a ladies' room (even though I'm sexually attracted to women)--there are stalls. I can't see shit (and you can't see me) in a women's room unless we're out of the stalls at the same time--and, then, we're both covered up. Anyone reacting to my presence in a ladies' room isn't reacting to anything I've done--they're reacting to the fact that I don't pass. Period.
