A slang term for a questioning or otherwise not-out transgender person who eventually comes to understand themself as trans. The process of realizing oneself is trans is referred to as “cracking” the egg.

e.g. Raymond said that meeting a trans man for the first time when he was an egg is what finally made him crack, even though he had been researching HRT for a while beforehand.
