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.

some of my Transgender friends are self employed, others are University Lecturers and some are retired. Coming out depends on employment acceptance, accomodation and Marital constraints.
This is in New Zealand where society is generally tolerant of us.
I am lucky to be seff employed in the Motel industry. Many of my guests ask about my transition and are genuinely interested and supportive.

Lifelong crossdresser and lifelong commercial fisherman…Have been trying to live ashore for the last 5 years as a self employed marine repair tech..from skiffs to ships.. Anyway,we are moving to a better area for Rogina and at the same time,Roger is going back commercial fishing. Hopefully when I am ashore between trips,I will have more Rogina time than I get now….I am so tired of being a boy!!!

I am a typical housewife type and so have not got a "job" per se. Not sure how that fits into the main stream of things here, but it is who I am 🙂

Life long Law Enforcement, many States and agences. Retired Federal Police Lieutenant. Own my own business now and since it is new, I still work part time on call doing Traffic Control for special events. I have been in many Manager (Chief) roles before retiring to include two tours in Iraq and two in Afghanistan. Seems most all my roles have been "MANLY" roles, The whole while my "inner self" was just below the surface. Now, in my mid 50's, I find I am able to bring it more to the front of my life. Where it will go I… Read more »

I am now and have been in the construction trades for about 26 years. Before I repaired industrual electronics and then before that I was a US Marine. I really don't know where I would fit in but I marked construction as that is the field that I have been in the longest.

I sort of think my fiance might be into cross dressing. He has always dressed very well, and sometimes seems to enjoys dressing me more than himself. I just figured it was just him being him. The he dressed up as a girl on a bet, and he seemed to enjoy very well. Unfortunately, I think my opinion might be biased, b/c when he was dressed up, it turned me on to no end! I was so embarrassed that I didn’t know whether or not to let him know my thoughts But he has been hinting lately that he wouldn’t… Read more »

If it turned you on then tell him it turned you on. If he doesn’t really like doing it you will find out. If he does like doing it you will find out. If he does like it and it turns you on . . . do I really need to go any further?

Have as much fun as you can. Let him have as much fun as he can.

is it possible that you guys aren’t attracted to being a women, perhaps you just want to be beautiful. You want your hair to be long cause you like long hair. You like makeup because it improves your face. You like silk and panty hoses and soft fabics ,because they are seductive and draw you in. C.S. Lewis said we don’t want to simply see beauty but go throught it. Perhaps you want to be as desired as you desire. You want her to feel about you the way you feel about . Male birds are more glorious than their… Read more »

My wife Rene and I would like to thank you for your your insightful email reply to her post last week. I must say we both agreed with much of what you had to say. It may be psychological but I seem to have always had an inherent though conflictive desire to feel soft and pretty. Being raised in a strict religious mid western community in the 50’s I was brought up with clear cut set of rules as to masculine and feminine rolls, and if you crossed over you could face severe ridicule. As a man I was taught… Read more »

You know what? I had a wife similar to yours. The only difference is that I am a transsexual and she accepted me. We still stayed together. We loved each other sooo much! There wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t tell each other that we loved each other and we were IN love with each other. I coldn’t have asked for a better wife. We were married for 26 years and raised a set of twins together. This past Novermeber in 2012 she passed away. She got very ill. It shouldn’t have happened to her and I… Read more »

I think it is a self indulgent sexual fetish and I think he should respect me and our children before putting his sexual needs first. Whats wrong with that? how right you are, they can dress it up and make it sound like they are in touch with their femme side, but it get more hurtful as we have children, mu husband has no regards for me or the children when he is in his selfish mode, why should i accept this in our lives, all this respect and loving and understanding is bull. they married us and expect us… Read more »

Fed up and Me, I guess you think you have the bases covered. Self indulgent? Maybe for some but I guarantee very few. I guess maybe the dressing is about you. We live tortured lives with a terrible secret. Knowing that the rules of society will crush everything we build if it were to get out. Yet it hurts no one. The problem is that society says a person must be like everyone else and not allowed to be an individual. If being myself is selfish and self indulgent then I am guilty. I have 2 children that know about… Read more »
