The following is excellent collection of quotes criticizing the concept that trans people need to "disclose" their gender history to people they are dating or thinking of dating.

(Hm, I need a gender icon.)

Yeah, but I presume you wouldn't beat them up or kill them. Plus, I presume you're talking about a potential long-term relationship, not a casual encounter.

If I were dating someone who turned out to be trans and didn't talk about it, I'd sure wonder about what kind of trust level there was between us.

I think this also has to do with whether one tends to start dating people they don't already know well. A friend I know well? I'd already know. Somebody I just met? Not necessarily.
