Just curious how many of us consider our occupation(or former occupation, if retired) blue collar or white collar. Blue collar gurl myself, have always worked around cars in many different types of auto related work

White collar I guess. It’s more jeans and tee-shirt. 10 years community mental health. As a note, I’m still very new into the online cross dressing./transgendered community. It’s nice to see a confirmation of the diversity of people.

…And my thanks to you, also, TJ. When we were under MAC, I also wore my Medic whites, or Dress Blues; but later, under TAC (later ACC) it was BDU (camo for civilians) until I retired.
It was a good life, and I still dream about it, sometimes.

White collar, for sure. Didn’t want dirt under my nails. As for TMI, it’s always nice to know what we have on. As I write this, I have on lavender colored high cut panties with ivory polka dots, nude stw pantyhose and a very pretty ivory camisole. I feel great underneath and rest assured, I can’t fix it.

I worked part of my way through college loading trucks with 98# bags of cement. The Army green for four years. Then until I got riffed because of COVID-19 I was in various IT jobs mostly network for the next 40+ years. Last with a large car rental company for 20 of those years. So now I am retired not by choice.

43 years as a mechanical engineer, but retired now, so in theory that would indicate white collar. However the reality is that I have often been in hot factories doing floor measurements for locating machinery for installation or in near 100F weather directing crews to unload containers of machinery and move it into a building or starting up and debugging machinery. It isn’t all office work.
When I was working in Taiwan, the weather (except for winter) is often in the 95F to 98F range with VERY high humidity. To put that into perspective, the Heat Index for those conditions is the same as here in the desert for around 118F with single digit humidity. I would tell newcomers that after you walked from the parking lot to our construction building, your morning shower is history…

Hi Kelli………….Blue Collar for me…………..loading boxes onto a belt , fetching boxes for customers…………getting a verbal dressing down from customers for “lousy service” ( I get blamed for a chain of goof ups so they vent on me)……..it’s all good, considering my life circumstances and the pay / benefits…..I am grateful for the job. Plus, wearing uniform shorts and my pony tail makes me feel like a girl in guy clothes. Once had a co-worker that would purposely leave the heavy and big stuff for little me. He was an A-hole cave man type and politicly well set. I would quietly use physics and leveraging to get it done without much added effort. Love figuring things out and being creative. You know what they say about “Man-Hours of Work”? A woman can do the same task in 20 minutes!!! giggles……………karley

Hi Kelli, great question, I really enjoyed reading everyone’s comments. I started out in blue collar back in the early 1970s (as a factory worker, mail delivery and then in grounds landscaping/maintenance). Been white collar ever since; from a junior office worker, I rose up through the ranks to CEO of a multi-million dollar corporation with a thousand employees. Retired four years ago and loving life. Stay safe, stay healthy, All the Best, Hugs, Krista.

Thanks for the neat question. Another cool way to get to know our awesome ladies. I’m always struck by the diversity of our group. And, of course, that one thing we all share in common.
For me, it’s both. Still working and wishing for retirement. I’ve been at the same company for 31+ years. Blue collar as a field technician for the first decade. White collar from there, in various roles in sales, IT, sales support, supply chain, ops support (Jill of all trades, master of none).

Mostly blue collar, but I wore a white one for a while managing a rent to own store and made a million dollars, for someone else. Did that for 16 years until the stress nearly made me crazy. Went into asset protection for a little while and how hospital security.

My collar is just about as blue as they come. I’ve got one of the most manly jobs there is which I do wearing panties lol. If they only knew!
Since everyone else is putting their proffesion I’ll follow suit here. I’m a pipefitter. Work around a lot of very rough men on a daily basis. I noticed that a lot of you are in what I call heavy trades and I know most of you are surrounded by rough men also. Hell I am one of the rough ones.
This turned out to be an interesting topic.

White collar, (with shades of blue). Worked in family manufacturing/exporting business all my career. “Early doors”, did both “blue and white collar” jobs.. Both out in the factory and in the office. Ended up white collar for the last 20 years

Started blue (steelworker) then Navy blue then white collar ever since leaving the Navy. The Navy gave me opportunities that translated well into civilian life.
Would love a pink collar job though. 😮

Blue collar for sure, I’m a diesel mechanic. Unfortunately it takes a lot of effort to make my hands look girly, usually the closest thing I get to French tips is grease under my finger nails. Dani👩🏻🔧

White collar. As usual, practically every job, I was expected to wear a tie, dress shirt, jacket, good slacks, for years (I still have about 10-15 khakis from that era…and they still fit!). And actually had a job for a few years where everyone had to wear a WHITE shirt and tie every day…and night…and weekends. It was shift work, for a job that was 7 day/24 hour rotating week. Eventually they went to casual clothes late night and on weekends. This was only a very slightly ‘on display’ job as we worked in a large cavernous darkened room. Eventually, after I left it slowly got a lot more casual (see ‘Pushing Tin’) .
