    yes, i understand teh feeling: there is no way to tell just what they are thinking. i don't think real piercings would alter anyone's initial thought about if you were trans or not....but then again, maybe it did. if people smile at me in a "knowing" but pleasant way, so what? there have been times when shopping in a store when a woman is just smirking away, and i know she thinks it's odd/weirdly funny, and i ignore them. you probably showed great poise, didn't get flustered, and maybe that made them think otherwise. as long as nobody challenges me verbally, i just go on with being me.
