Our desire to crossdress comes from something deep inside of us. The only thing I can compare it to is the feeling that I was meant to become a writer. There’s something inside of me saying “you are a writer,” and there’s something else saying “you like women’s clothes.”
Many think transgender and crossdressing people want to cross genders because of something that happened in their childhood. Not a traumatic incident, but that there was something that turned us into the way we are. I don’t think so. I think it’s just something in our bodies which tell us we need to crossdress.
I knew I was a crossdresser after a had a dream where I was in a dress. I don’t think THAT is what made me a crossdresser. I think my inherent desire to crossdresser was just projected in the dream.
