Putting on a dress = gay, queer, and so many uncalled for names in this strange society around us. I could never understand why clothing gets equated with sexuality. They’re just clothes/shoes, and so many times in history the fashions have crossed the genders back/forth.
Then there’s the push for gender equality, which I strongly support. But in that push, shouldn’t that mean moving away from defining someone’s gender based on their clothes, shoes, appearance. Gender seems to run deeper than those outward things.
Being a crossdresser and fitting in seems to be this big challenge because the society around us is confused. It’s like this strange desire for people to categorize, box, label others and they feel threatened when confused.
Why does a person’s sexuality really matter, unless you’re sexually interested in them. It was my same logical argument from high school when some boys accused others of being gay… my thinking was who cares if someone else was gay, unless you were gay too and interested, or questioning your own sexuality. That argument did get me into a few fights, but they deserved it.
Same for gender. To help break down barriers, to make things more equal, both women and men need to stop looking at clothes/fashions/shoes as defining someone’s gender and look deep inside at the gift of who that person is. Feels like a very shallow society that only wants to focus on what’s on the outside. It’s what’s on the inside that counts.
