So What Is It You Do Here?

Crossdressers, what is your occupation

I was fortunate enough to meet many wonderful ladies at Esprit this year, and perhaps by coincidence found that a good number of the transgendered woman I met were in the engineering field. This sparked a conversation that could only be of interest to engineers and statisticians about the distribution of transgender woman, whether the engineering field had a higher proportion of transgender woman, or perhaps the engineers we meet are self selected because engineering fields tend to be more tolerant.

This is where you come in, dear reader. I’d love to learn more about what you do for a living – perhaps there is a typical crossdresser occupation or perhaps (as I expect) the transgendered travel through all walks of life. Nonetheless it will be interesting to hear what the community on Crossdresser Heaven have to say about it all.

The only promise I can make is that this poll will reveal an “Internet Truth” – which is a piece of information believed to be true because it is published and shared by others on the Internet. The weight of the “Internet Truth’s” broad distribution compensates for any lack of substantiating evidence or flaws in scientific method.

This is nothing new, but I crossdress becuase it is comfortable and relaxing. Mainly, I just like women’s clothes better. I love femininity and want to be as feminine as possible (in some regards, but I also like being a man sometimes). I don’t necessarily want to “pass” — usually. I just want to wear the pretty dress and relax. For me, sometimes there is a sexual aspect to it. I love wearing panties or lingerie to bed with my wife (a rarity). It just makes everything that much more fun. I love having an orgasm while dressed up and… Read more »

I think in the same way that you do. I have crosssdressed since I was 10, I’m 38 now and I’m not really passable as a woman without a great deal of effort. For the most part I crossdress because i like womens clothes better. I am not into makeup and wigs and don’t see it ever being a real issue. Although there is a sexual or more a sensuous side of crossdressing, I think that there are many of us who use it as an escape from our very regular everyday lives. I love womens lingerie and especially shoes.… Read more »

I just had my husband tell me he cross dresses and has been keeping it from me for 30+ years, it is very hard to understand and to even believe this is my husband. After a few days of discussing it with him Im trying to understand him, Im not willing to give up the Man I Married. Im very scared he will leave, if we cant come to an understanding. If someone could give me some insight that would greatly be appreciated.

Maybe give him a dressing day when your not around or try to do little things for him like wearing some panties to bed. being supportive would be the best thing for both of you all it also took a lot of courage to come out and tell you he likes to cd so be proactive with that and see what you all can start talking about.

Men crossdress for a variety of reasons: sexual stimulation, comfort, Tension release, a brief escape from reality, emulation,in that they look up to their female partners,or they feel that they are indeed more feminine than male. even physical health can be a reason. one must always look at a difficult situation logically and not emotionally to understand the reasoning behind certain actions. I believe that since it took him 30 years to tell you that he must love you very much, and is probably more afraid of you ending the relationship.In my own situation, I tried to tell my wife… Read more »

I totally agree!! It just feels SO good!! Hi, I am 59, and started to crossdress about three years ago. It started when my wife was away for a trip a couple a weeks and I found CD hilarious. I left a wineglass with lipstick in the dish washer machine. She thought I was cheating on her, kept asking me who´s been seeing me. I said nobody. Then, When I told her she didn´t believe me! “It´s just a bad lie!”, she said. I said wait. When I dressed and put on some make-up she started to cry. It has… Read more »

Awe, I'm sorry to hear that. I don't have to interact with too many intolerant people at Naropa University but I when I return to Auraria Campus, I'll have to deal with ignorant Christ-fuckers like AIM and Menorah Ministries.

I voted for what I'm studying to become – a Naturopathic Doctor. I'm transferring to Metro State College of Denver in Spring 2011 and going to be earning a BS in Integrative Therapeutic Practices, which should be a great way to segue into Naturopathic Med School. I'll get the respect I deserve when I become a doctor!

There was a survey done in the 60's that showed that a large number of transvestites were engineers. I have it somewhere, if I can find it I'll share the source.

Freelance IT Consultant. I like working for myself for oh so many reasons. Sure it has its downsides but I can't count how many times I've been on a conference call form my home office while secretly in ladies business attire or been on a video chat with a client dressed in a shirt and tie from the waist up and a skirt and heels beneath the view of the camera.

I said engineer, because although retired, I still hold my professional engineers license. But I seriously considered other, because I was a musician in the Navy, and still do quite a lot of theater pit orchestra playing. In my retirement, I have opened a clock and watch repair business, and consider that my "day job," I find this inbteresting, though, because I only know two other TG people. One is fully transitioned. She is an architect. The other is a retired electrician, and I have often wondered iff there is any correlation between chosen professions and our need to be… Read more »

I am a retired police officer. I served 30 years with a San Diego county agency. Prior to that I served 9 years in the U.S. Navy. I have to assume there are a lot of CD/TV/TG's in police work as that is one way we can hide our fem proclivities – – by being macho guys.
