What is your opinion of this?

Salutations all,
I have a honest question on how people in the trans community feel about this.
I found on OP (original plumbing a trans magazine) a shirt that is currently out of stock that states "No one knows I am Trans"
How would you feel if a person whom does not identify as trans, wears this shirt?
Would you feel supported?
Would you feel offended?
How would you feel?

How ... More
I wouldn't necessarily be offended, but I'd be pretty weirded out. Why would you want to claim to be trans* if you are not?

Ciao. Ciao.
I wouldn't really care, though I might question their motives. Maybe they're an ally just trying to raise some trans visibility?

Id's be offended. Cis people really don't have to deal with the same issues of discrimination as trans* people, and I would feel like wearing that shirt is making light of those issues.

To me, the shirt itself is entirely stupid. It would gain more value if used in a visibility campaign. If I saw a cis person wearing it, I'd be pissed as hell. It would come off as a joke, like they're wearing it for ironic purposes. No ally should be caught in it. I mean, it's basically equivalent wearing a sign saying, "I'M TRANS*".

It wouldn't bother me, but it would be really stupid. You aren't a trans person, so of course no one would think you are trans. If you aren't trans, you are just making light of other people's situations.
