I have to disagree with your statement that cross dressing is not normal. That would be correct only if you accept that consensus opinion about what defines “normal” is always true. Well, It isn’t. In fact, I would argue that majority opinions are wrong more often than not – but that is food for a separate discussion.
This thing of ours is a harmless activity which brings us much pleasure; it it not illegal, immoral or dangerous. In time, I expect it to bacome accepted, then ignored, just like any other fashion. Meanwhile, you should not beat yourself up or suffer the unpleasantness of fighting the urge to be who you are. You deserve better.
I appreciate the encouragement, Bettylou. As I mentioned in my reply to Peggy Sue, I used the word “normal” meaning what society considers normal, not what those of us here consider normal.
