- The concept is widely discussed, in articles and books. Finding a precise definition in a reliable source may be a tall order, but I haven't looked extensively. Rivertouch@enwiki 15:48, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
- Serano discusses passing in "Excluded," Chap. 14, "How Double Standards Work," section "The Pass/Reveal Double Bind."
- I find the quoted sentence about passing to be problematic, as it appears to give psychokinetic agency to a transwoman for what goes on in someone else's head, i.e., it says that passing is "[their] ability to be regarded..." etc. Serano talks in Excluded (and, afaicr, also in Whipping Girl) how this makes the trans person appear to be "the active party" i.e, that "they are working hard to achieve a false appearance, and that the perceiver is merely a passive and objective observer who is 'fooled' by the marked individual." There's much more, and it's worth reading.
- Serano talks about passing specifically, in Whipping Girl, chapter 8, "Dismantling Cissexual Privilege", section "Passing-centrism," where she talks about the problematic nature of the term "passing" being interpreted as the transsexual "duping" or "not duping" someone who is "just" a passive observer by their "performance", But she responds, saying, "I would argue that the reverse is true. The public is the primary active participant by virtue of their incessant need to gender every person they see as either female or male." Comments earlier in the chapter address the issue without using the word, in the section "Gendering" where she talks about "perceived sex", and where she talks about "conditional cissexual privilege" in the section "The Myth of Cissexual Birth Privilege."
- If I had to come up with a definition based on Serano, I'd base it on her comments in Excluded, where she says, "Indeed, the verb 'pass' is routinely applied to anyone who has a marked trait but is nevertheless perceived by others as an unmarked person," and that the concept is borrowed from other marked traits like race (thus, "pass as white") or sexual orientation (thus, "pass as straight"). In the case of trans people, passing would mean a transsexual who is "perceived as cissexual." So, attempting a definition: 《Passing, in the context of gender, applies to a transgender individual who is perceived as cisgender.》 (Serano wrote in 2007, and I believe usage has changed since then.) I would definitely strike "has the ability to be regarded," which Serano specifically attacks in her comments in chap. 8 of Whipping Girl. Since "cisgender" is still more jargony than "transgender" and might trip some people up, I might substitute "not transgender" in the first sentence; or perhaps leave it in, with a parenthetical '(not transgender)' immediately following.
