Let's talk about trans-related things
Yesterday, I was recently fired from my job under dubious circumstances (no issues discussed, no warnings, no write-ups, no negative feedback whatsoever...and then bam - fired with no reason under the vague pretense that I failed some kind of secondary background check after five months of working there). This happened shortly (probably within ten days) of me disclosing to HR and my supervisor that I had started hormone treatments (I'm MTF) and basically that this was going on. I was under the impression that it would be wise to tell them before
I started developing breasts or something, so that they would be prepared and in the know. I was told that HR departments like to be aware of such things.It seemed like I had received their blessing, but apparently that was not the case.
So last night I put in an app at a temp agency. They called me this morning. I interviewed this afternoon, and they have a position open for me at Wells Fargo working in their imaging center. I have to do another interview for that on Friday, but I'm hopeful and relatively confident.
The thing is, after everything that's happened, I'm not sure how to bring up the subject of my gender thingies. I'm not even sure if I should. Or if I should, who I should be speaking to and what I should say. I have not said anything to this temp agency.
I've already been growing my hair out for a while, although I still present as male.
So basically I have a few things that I don't know how to handle, here. Advice? Suggestions?
Please please please don't tell me I have to cut my hair. I've been growing it out for almost a year and I couldn't bear to start over again just because of this bullshit.
