    Nowadays we hear so much in the press about boys going to school dresxed as a girl.This is for various reasons.They could indentify as transexual,crossdressers gender fluid,would be Drag Queen or Womanless Beauty Pageant Contestant.It all seems par for the course these days.In my sixties/ seventies schooldays this would have been largely unheard of and frkwned upon  in my area of the U.K.Girls would you have liked to go to school as a pretty girl bsck in your childhood? .For me it would be yes and no.In a perfect world I would have loved it.Especially in my teen years wearing a pretty party dress with tights for the school disco.An ultimate fantasy of mine back then.On the other hand realistically would I have had the nerve? As it was I was teased mercifully by the boys.I wasn’t effeminate but on the other hand wasn’t perceived as a regular boy.by the other  lads.They  would call me girl.I used to take offence outwardly but inside maybe I protested too much.I wasn’t gay but I so wanted to be one of the girls and chat about clothes and had to surpress it.At age 13 or 14 that was very hard.

    Interesting question Roberta.  I graduated from High School in 1973 (well that was a long time ago).  At that time, guys and gals wore exactly the same thing to school everyday; jeans (bell bottoms if I recall correctly) and t-shirts.  There were a few girls who wore skirts but they were definitely in the minority.  Our school didn’t have a dress code, no uniforms, and pretty laid back.  I suppose a guy could get away with wearing girls jeans and a girl t-shirt without much being said.  For me, I was too busy playing sports and trying to make out with girls to think about dressing as such.  That came later in university.  Hugs, Krista.

    An interesting question that I believe my answer would be yes and no as well. In the 70s and 80s, the town I grew up in had problems with anything that even remotely seemed like feminine behavior from a “boy ” i think I would have enjoyed the option if it had been acceptable.

    I went to a very rough comprehensive school where the choices were generally fight or keep your head down, I chose the latter.  I remember feeling jealous that the girls uniform was so much nicer,(pleated skirt and tights), though I dread to think what would have happened to me if I turned up at school dressed like that.

      Viviane do you think this all male environment that we both endured had any impact. I was quite shy around girls for a few years, but my dressing career had already started. I know people are always looking for reasons but I think it’s more nature than nurture. X

    Yes I would, I always dreamed of wearing the school dress in the summer, As it was always so hot in the long pants white shirt and tie, I felt the the girls always had it better, just a light cotton summer school dress and T-Bar shoes

    Absolutly. If, like some of the others have said my safety could have been guarenteed. But I got the crap beat out of me dressing as a boy so…, I loved the girls clothes. There were mini skirts and bell bottom jeans and cute tops everywhere. And i was wearing crap…no wonder I turned to drugs…(Ive been clean for decades).

    I went through High School as a girl, & I loved it. I decided that if I came out in High School, the rest of my life would be easier. I expected problems, & was shocked that I was accepted almost immediately! I instantly, became “one of the girls”.
    I realize, this is NOT typical, but Chicago has always been a progressive city.

      You were a brave girl Bobbi and lucky with your surroundings. If I would have tried to come out high school would have been hell school. I was there from 1978-82, not at all accepted back then.

    Went to an all boys school(11 plus for those who understand, not Eton etc) so it couldn’t have happened, no Uniform available. Would have loved to see the faces of the religious zealots who ran the place if I had.

    Hello Roberta,           Yes most definitely, it would have been a dream for me. I still love girls  school uniforms, & wear them as often as I can. To be in school uniform with the other girls would have been really lovely. To go to the school disco or school prom & wear a lovely dress, undies, tights would be lovely. Yes my school days would have been wonderful dressed as a girl.         love,    Helenmarie

    What’s interesting about this thread is the division between people for whom it would have meant wearing a different uniform, and people for whom it would have meant wearing cute teenage fashion items 🙂

    When I used to play with the girls on the climbing frame at junior school I remember when they span upside down their skirts often fell over their heads briefly revealing their underwear, and they thought that was deliciously funny.  I, in my shorts could not do that.  I wished I could have joined in.

          Maybe by spending some time playing “what if” you can come up with solutions?

          Obviously you can’t change the past, but you can re-imagine it, change your “now”, and hence change your future!

    Oh yes… And no way…

    This touches a deep nerve – I used to dream of this, but knew I wouldn’t last 10 seconds at my rough school.

    One day, the games master, fed up with explaining the off side rule to me asked if I wanted to wear a short skirt and frilly knickers and go play hockey with the girls.

    That moment lasts in my memory. The feeling of part of me dying, and the other part of me dying to scream YES PLEASE!!!!

    Love Laura

        If I had a time machine I would go back to that moment and make myself say “Yes” in such a cheeky way that the games master would have called my bluff, forced me to do it, and my secret would be out and I would not have lived the next 40 years hiding a major part of me away.

        The secret-keeping is detrimental to life generally. When it’s all open, brain power isn’t wasted wishing things were another way.

    Definitely, I was in high school in the late 70’3 early 80’s and the girls fashion world really exploded back then. High waist Mac jeans or Angel Wings, satin blouses, I loved it all. I still keep checking the thrift shops for those jeans. Ah, to dream.

    Going to high school in the 70s was so much different than today. Although I would have loved it, I probably wouldn’t have made it through unscathed. You know we old ladies always say “kids have it so much easier now”. Lol😜

    Yes, I certainly wanted to and often was jealous of the other girls in class, wanting to wear what they did. In high school we had a students ‘funny clothes day each semester. At one of those a class mate coaxed me into a traditional African dress he had brought but chickened out of wearing himself. I wore it gladly through the day to some amusement from fellow students and teachers. This was in a small Swedish city in 1981.

    No, not ever. Other than I went to school in the 60’s, I would of likely been arrested, by the 70’s I wouldn’t of, but wow the sensation it would caused! Not my style at all, however I just didn’t have the urge to go out. It was a solitary pastime for me, and largely because I would be of been too ashamed to admit my fondness for women’s clothes at the time.

    Fortunately, in many parts of the Western world much progress is being made for those that lead some kind of an alt lifestyle. Though I still think that there is considerable misunderstanding about this passion we all here share. That we are gay, or trans, or something, but many are like me, just hetro’s that love look the feeling of women’s wear, and are drawn to dress in these beautiful clothes.

    I went to an all guy school so no.  DO I wish I could have gone to the all girls school?  Maybe.  Did I try on some of the girl costumes from musicals put on by the theatre arts department with the neighboring all girls school?  Oh yes.  Wish I had tried on more.

    When I was in school, they applied a policy that students had to wear school uniforms. The choices were white or navy blue collared shirt and khaki pants or shorts for everyone…girls had the option of khaki long or knee length skirt. Obviously they couldn’t control the underwear choice, unless a girl was wearing a bra that was visible through the white shirt.

    Like you, if it had been a perfect world and could have done without receiving massive amounts of social and physical abuse, then yes. But the real world of a rural high school in the early – mid 1980’s… not just no, but hell no… 12 years later when my brother wore a skirt on the day of the week that students were supposed to wear “dress clothes”, he was expelled, and protested that it was discriminatory since the girl that wore slacks, a dress shirt and necktie (one of his best friends) didn’t receive similar treatment… he home-schooled the next year.
