When we crossdress we’re making a personal statement that we will not be denied. Obviously.
The social barriers to being ourselves are slowly crumbling.
Go out in any big city and you’ll see guys, straight guys, wearing earrings and jewelry. Soccer dads wearing skirts. Hipsters wearing makeup and sporting color on their nails.
I could go on. Most of those guys don’t consider themselves crossdressers or non-binary.
Obviously some of us are in clearly difficult situations. If that’s you I sympathize. I hope things improve for you.
That said, I would offer that many of us can do more than we realize. Unfounded fear holds us back.
Maybe….just maybe…..the biggest barrier to being yourself is the reflection in the mirror.
