But the risk of significant negative consequences to a transgender person revealing their status to a potentially hostile audience are much, much higher than the risk of significant negative consequences to a person not wishing to date a transgender person to a potentially hostile audience. Thus both the utilitarian principles and ethics here point to the wisdom of the latter group disclosing their views rather than the former disclosing their status.
