    There’s some evidence from scientific studies that gender issues are more common among folks on the spectrum. This squares with my personal experience also. Curious to know what you all think. Thanks!!

    I have a long family history with autism and AS HE and have worked with them for a while and sometimes I see similarities with me and autistic people.

    Ashley.

    I wasn’t aware of this. Are you are you able to provide links or otherwise references to the research. I would really like to read it.

    Take care girl.

      Here’s one study. There seems to be a lot of debate but IME (anecdotal of course), I’ve noticed it a lot.

        Thank you, Ashley,   this seems a plausible explanation for this compulsion we all seem to have…and it fits me to a T.  Not to mention, it’s a better explanation to give than “Because I want to”.

        Hugs

    I discovered years ago that I fit the Asperger’s profile; but at an age that there seemed little point in pursuing the matter. And there was a brief time in my early teens when I wondered if I was “supposed” to be a girl, but something went wrong. Finally decided I was just a misfit in society. (Quite comfortable here, however).

    It is interesting. I am really introverted and socially awkward, so it’s definitely possible.

    This is probably what’s behind a lot of my anxiety over my cross dressing. If I sometimes get uncomfortable in relatively normal social situations, how am I supposed to handle situations involving cross dressing?

    Ashley, an interesting question to be sure.  I am not sure if I would be on the spectrum but considering I am on other spectrums, it’s possible.
