I was struck buy a letter to a problem page in a national newspaper in the UK. It was a man in a similar position to yours. He wanted to tell his wife about the desire to dress as a woman. The answer was all about the dangers of telling her. Would she accept it? Hinting by watching some Grayson Perry, then testing the water slowly
Then the thought occurred to me what if the positions were reversed? If she, the wife wanted to wear trousers and never wear skirts, give up makeup and cut her hair short.
Would she have to hint and negotiate with her partner? What if he said no? Wouldn’t that be deemed coersive relationship. No she would be told it’s her choice how she dresses and she has the right to express herself and if the husband didn’t like it, it would be his problem. Just thinking. What a massive double standard.
I wish you luck in your gender expression.
