This propensity to “admire the image” is exactly one of the things that typically drives your wife or girlfriend bat guano crazy about your crossdressing.
Blanchard’s autogynephilia theory is…ignorant, narrow minded, and exclusive. Unless there’s something I’ve missed here, which is altogether possible. And the fact that some of our critics and detractors use this very same theory to bash us with, I think bears me out to at least some extent.
While I agree it’s true that cis women, transgender women, and crossdressers all find women’s clothes attractive, (not to mention cis men,) the reasons behind these are at least as different as they are similar.
