      A child may be more willing to ask the question, but because crossdressers are not seen and recognized all that often, people of any age can call it into question.

      A number of years ago I was performing in a CD show.  After a rehearsal, we went to dinner at a restaurant.  They were quite busy, so there was a line.  We went early and had a table reserved.  The bill was paid and we were leaving on our own to go back to get ready for the show.

      I left while there were still a number of people at the table.  As I was walking out, I overheard an elderly woman say to her friend, “You see that table of women over there?  I don’t think they’re women, I think they’re men.”  It wasn’t said maliciously or with disdain, but with curiosity.  I didn’t say anything, nor did I hang around to hear a reply.

      An adult will usually not ask directly, but will still take notice.

      The girl was asking an honest question, and giving her an honest answer would help teach the next generation that we are not freaks but are just normal people who do things a little different.  We create an ally for the next generation

      Children are less inhibited than adults.  On rare occasions, I have been asked by a child if I am a boy or girl.  Normally, it is my voice that prompts that question.  My usual answer is “yes.”

      That’s great…I had a similar thing happen today but she was around 26 or so. I was checking out at Publix dressed as Carla and the clerk asked me a question which I answered. She looked at me and quietly asked if I was a guy. I said when I’m dressed this way no. She smiled and said had I not heard your voice I thought you were a really nice dressed lady. I said I am and she told me my choice of skirt and top were spot on. She came around the side and bagged the few things I had and looked at me and said I wish my legs looked that good in a skirt. She was sweet and said hope to see you real soon.  I know we are nervous about being outed but sometimes it goes quite well.

      A young child’s curiosity at that age is something to be treasured.  They are just trying to figure out what those crazy adults are doing and make all the connections to understand us sometimes.

      Hi Sandy I am sure she made your day Out of the mouths of babes. She was telling you the truth, She did not know by looking, she had to ask. Its now up to you how far you want to take it. Decisions, decisions I am of the belief you are who you feel you are not what you have been told. Stay true to your self you cannot go wrong  Luv Stephanie

      What a great story Sandy.  That must have felt nice.  The innocent curiosity of children.  No judgement or anything, just a friendly question to help in understanding.  It would be nice if we all grew up to continue being friendly and trying to understand.
