Fashions are a funny thing, and crossdressers are perhaps more beholden to the whims of the fashion fairies than most men. When men dress in women’s clothes, there is something special about looking fabulous and beautiful.

The other day I was thinking – what if crossdressing was normal? You know, if you were just as likely to see a man in high heels and a skirt as a woman wearing a pantsuit. What is there was no masculine gender expression, no feminine gender expression. Would we still be crossdressers? In fact, would we still have the desire to crossdress?

Certainly there must be some part of the transgender experience which is about being unique, in our expression of who we are – the desire to be like woman, yet still knowing that we are a man.

Don’t tell crossdressers they’re normal

If you do, we just might agree. Many organizations, such as Tri-ESS, go to great lengths to remove the stigma from crossdressing. This stigma is entirely a social construct, created by our culture. There are theories as to why crossdressing is taboo – perhaps on a subconscious level it slows down the acquisition of a suitable mate with which to propagate the species?

Nevertheless, fashion will move forward. The brief rise of the metrosexual in the mid 2000’s was a definite step towards a more socially acceptable way for men to express their femininity. Even if all it really meant was that you wore nice clothes and bathed more than once a week.

Socially Acceptable Cross Dressing

I wonder if the next fashion wave will see crossdressing as desirable and trendy? I hope so, but I’m not going to leave my skirt hanging in the closet waiting for it to happen…


P.S. Don’t wait for crossdressing to come in style. Learn how to do your makeup like a professional and look fabulous!

Metro came and – as you said – went. I think the term popped up in a New York newspaper, although the author said it was over as it began.

I think we’re seeing a slow rise in male beauty products, but they’re mostly for younger men…. and trannys 🙂

If the taboo did go away overnight – by whatever means – I personally would rather go all the way. Either be totally male in appearance or present as a female. But maybe I’m just weird 😀

Hehe 🙂
Sometimes I toy with the idea of going more androgynous – perhaps we’re women’s clothes with a touch of maleness. Perhaps a slightly feminine blouse, foundation, a slight touch of gloss on my lips…

I’m a Straight Male Women’s Shoe Fetishist Crossdresser of Women’s Footwear especially High Heels. I so much wish I had the courage to just be Myself Totally, to the whole World. I only exposed my secret closeted lifestyle to certain areas and certain people who are not judgemental or negative. I was told that if I am ashamed of something, I should not do it. In my older years of age, I am not as of yet, totally out. Unless I get intoxicated & say F*** it, which I do periodically.

I wish that Shoes and Clothing, etc. were just that. Not Male or Female. But then, the power to wear Women’s Footwear or whatever, would take away our expression of. being different from what the Norm dictates that we have to be.
