Memes aside, how much does height affect passing? Is there ever a point where it's impossible to pass due to height?
>>
If you could play in the NBA -- not the WNBA, but the male NBA -- then you'll probably never pass. Any shorter and you'll be fine.
>>
>>5693899
So where does 6'5 fit in on that scale? Hypothetically speaking
>>
>>5693885
Basically, anything above 5'7 is nonpassing. (Obviously height doesn't matter for FtMs because test is a helluva drug, even if you'll be a turbomanlet)
>>
>>5693885
It's just one of many factors that influence our perceptions. No one factor guarantees "no-pass", but some are weighted more than others. Height is not one of the weightier ones.
>>
>>5693931
>over 5'7
>not passing
bruh have you even seen europe? there are girls taller than me there and i'm 6'!
>>
>>5693885
while being shorter probably helps, I think you can be tall and still pass. After all, tall women exist too.

Just to give you and example, everyone in my family is really tall. There are women in my family who are 6'0".
>>
>>5693907
We're pretty much screwed.
>>
>>5693931
>anything above 5'7 is nonpassing
not at all. height is not the sole determiner of whether someone passes or not. There are many people who are 5'4 who can't pass as well as some who are 5'10.
I can say I've seen examples of people who did pass as tall as 6 feet. Many mtfs around the 5'7 - 5'10 range pass just fine.
>>
It never becomes impossible to pass but damn it gets harder. I have a friend who's 5'10" and even as an attractive cisgirl that height gives her trouble finding guys who are taller than her.
>>
>>5693885
On campus I see a fair number of female students and faculty are taller than me (5'7"). No one gives them a second glance.
>if you're feminine, being tall doesn't matter
>if you look male, height is irrelevant
>>
When you can't buy clothes off the rack in your height at target, you're probably not going to pass.

When you can't buy clothes online for your height at Target, you're in never passable territory.
>>
Height has very little with how well you pass. It just means people are going to pay significantly more attention to, and scrutinize the possibility you're trans.
>>

I am very fond of this picture OP.

Also there is no hard-line answer to your question and height isn't something that can feasibly be changed anyway so try not to worry about it.

in other words, not passing.

I'm 5'10 and I don't have too many issues with passing.

Europe too
>>
>tfw 6'0"
I already know the answer to this, but no amount of muscle loss will make one shorter, huh?
I guess slouching is an option. Or just never standing up ever again. Maybe I can get ran over by a bus.
>>

Europe (particularly Scandinavia) is the master race of height and slenderness. Hitler had good taste.

No no no, don't slouch, apparently that's a good way to get clocked. Bad posture is more common in guys that girls.

I've given up at this point. Quite literally given up.

My girlfriend is 6'2" and she's still a qt. Being 5'9" and walking with her is a little silly looking but she definitely passes. You guys can too!

Don't give up anon, see: >>5697063

It might work out it for you.

5'8 works right? Pretty sure it just makes me count as a tall girl rather than average/tall man.
>>
>>5693885
6 feet and up you will never pass
anyone who thinks otherwise is a hon in denial, not even memeing

5'8-5'11 is pretty much normal tall girl height range so you'll pass unless you're also a big guy (or otherwise mannish)
>>
What I'm getting from this thread is 6'2 is the upper bound really. Fuck being 6'5
>>
Im 6'1 and im stealth ^_^ it might make it a bit harder, but I can attest it's not impossible :3 I transitioned at 15 though. body porportions is more of a passing hinderence then height is imo(shoulders, rib cage,hands lack of hips) i lucked out, but it's easy to clock transgirls with man shoulders or nohips.

I'm 5'7.5, which is between the average height of men (5'9.5") and women (5'4" ) where I live.

So, passing is okay, and I have known plenty of trans women much taller than I am who have managed it.
>>

It's never impossible to pass due to height, but it will definitely make passing more difficult

Do you live in a dwarf kingdom deep under mountains? Is it true that dwarf women have beards?
>>
>>5693931
Maybe in America. Where I'm at (the tallest region of Europe everyone always forgets) I see women around my height all the time, or like 5-ish centimeters shorter. And in heels a lot of them are taller than me on flats. So I don't really give a fuck.
>>

the dwarf women don't grow full beards but they do have belly hair and mustaches

what region is that? don't worry, the average height is sure to plummet once the caliphate takes over.
>>
>>5696027
i don't get it? are you implying that european women are manly? because from that picture, you don't pass at all.

I don't know what you're talking about, it looks like she passes fine from here. What's manly about her?
>>
>>5693885
most girls are 5'2-5'6

if you're 5'7-5'11 you're considered tall but not unusually tall.
6'0+ is man height unless you have an extremely girly face like karlie kloss

I pass at 6'. As long as you have good posture and know how to "wear" your height, you'll be okay.

I would say taller than 6'2" becomes very difficult, but not impossible. It very much depends on your breadth.
>>
>>5698106
The third tall region everyone always forgets about is Dinaric mountains, i.e. Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Serbia. We're never in any rankings because the rankings, at least in English, are always for "industrialized/developed" nations, which is borderline offensive. Sure there is a link between the standard of living in the country and height but there's more to it than that. US hasn't gotten any taller since ~1940s while a relatively poor region like Dinarids is like the tallest or one of the tallest in the world.
>>
>>5693885
if you look like a girl, you look like a girl. there's no point in beating yourself up over something you can't change.

If you're over 180-185 cm you'll probably look grotesque and hulky unless you have good genetics and feminine features(most don't).

But what about the dating scene? Do normal heterosexual men hit on you, or only trannie hawks? One is less likely to shank you than the other.
>>
>>5700134
If you're taller than 180 cm you should really kill yourself because you will forever be a non passing hon ruining the image for other trans girls

My gf is 6' 0" and visually passes pretty well. It's her shitty ass voice that gives away, as long as she's quiet, we've never had an issue.

You're just one fucking inch and a quarter taller than the average woman. That's not a big deal at all.

Reminder female models are 5'11" - 6'0"

It's harder to pass when you're tall but if you do you have an advantage.
>>

I'm a 6'1" mtf, my sister is 6'0", my female cousins are 5'11"+
I'm passing. Height doesn't matter, at least not in females.

Unless if you're Shaq-tier you'll be fine, I'm 5'11" and pass just fine in public. People occasionally ask if I played basketball in high school or some other genetic comment on my height but that's it
>>
>>5693885
Nope. If you're having trouble passing for other reasons it sure as fuck will make it more difficult, but there are huge amazon cis ladies and tiny danny devito cis dudes out there, so height alone won't make or break it.
>>
>>5696061
Same height and I've heard a lot of claims about years of hrt making people shorter, but I'm not holding my breath.

Just gotta stand tall and proud. 6' is bad but we're not off the charts. At least height commands respect.
