I’ve been thinking about this a lot, and thought that it bears some clarification.
When I talk about ‘cure’, I’m not talking about SRS (sex reassignment surgery), which in some circles is regarded as a cure – you become who you were meant to be. This presupposes that who you were meant to be is someone of the opposite sex. There are many crossdressers who are happy dressing part time, and for whom SRS would ruin their lives. I also don’t mean ‘never thinks about crossdressing again’, as this is a fairly high bar for a cure, and is surely as inane as asking a dieter to never eat another donut again.
The dictionary defines cure as: ‘a means of healing or restoring to health’
I’d love your comments on this, but as a start, let’s use this as a working definition for cure:
Removing the continuous compulsion to dress in clothes of the opposite sex, and thus the act of dressing that typically follows.
