Absolutely! I am heterosexual, but I was so severely rejected by so many women, I started dressing so I could look myself in the mirror and see someone who would accept me.
I had successfully blotted out that painful part of my own history until you reminded me.
Thank you. I truly mean that. It’s wonderful to know you weren’t the only one dealt a bad hand (or maybe screwed up a few times like an ordinary but somewhat clumsy and socially inept human being!).
When I say “you”, it’s in a general sense, and I actually mean me…
Still clumsy and socially inept, but wearing it like a badge of honour.
