Good subject Alicen and that would be a “YES” for me but in this way: since I’ve given myself the freedom to adopt casual, near androgynous style female clothes as my daily wear and worn while in male mode, I’ve found the need for going to wigs, dresses, skirts, hose and heels for fulfillment of my need to connect with my femme self to be drastically diminished. That latter desire is still with me but now it’s mostly just confined to special occasions.
My stealth female dressing still confounds my wife as she says that my outfits take a fair bit of scrutiny (which rarely comes) for them to be detected as much different from male clothing. But I tell her that doesn’t matter to me because when I’m dressed as such, I KNOW that I’m in 100% female attire and that makes all the difference in how I FEEL inside of me – and that’s a pretty girly feeling. 🙂
Now if you can reach that same state of fulfillment and connection without any dressing or other exterior embellishments, then I’d say you have indeed reached the self-actualization stage as far as your female identification needs are concerned. Congrats!
