7 Things You Learn As A Straight Guy Who's A Crossdresser

http://www.cracked.com/personal-experiences-1646-7-things-you-learn-as-straight-guy-whos-crossdresser.html

This article reminded me that I'm really lucky. As you may know, I really like to crossdress. Although I've received a lot of hate for my looks (I'm not even talking about crossdressing here, just long hair, feminine looks), the people around me always have been at worst indifferent and more frequently totally into it.
I mean, my girlfriend gets jealous when I wear some of her dresses better than her and lends me her high heels when we go out together; my roommate, who was androphobe when we met, actually goes along with me when I find him a nice dress; and my other friends react in one of two ways: for most men it's "oh damn, had I not known you were a dude I'd have hit on you", for most women it's "let me show you every piece of clothes I own one by one, we're going to have some fun!"

I've always been taking that for granted, when that's obviously not the case for most people. And I wouldn't even call crossdressing a need or a strong part of my identity! I just like to wear dresses because they look good on me and women's clothes are way more diverse and creative than men's clothes.

Anyway, what did you think about that? I really didn't understand the part where he says there's no place for him with most communities. I mean, I understand because that's usually how these communities work, but damn is that dumb.

I enjoyed the article. It made me think how I would react if my boyfriend told me he crossdresses and I realized I wouldn't really care. He's still the same man! Just in a dress!

Now I'm not a man and this might be insensitive, so I apologize, but I found it a bit curious about the tucking the stuff inside the abdomen. To me it sounds like that would be more painful and uncomfortable, whereas the writer seems to imply it's the more comfortable option. I'm just surprised, but I don't have that equipment so I don't really know! Just found it interesting.

Yeah I've tried to do that once and... ouch. Just so much ouch.
Unless you're hung like a horse and/or try wearing G-strings, women's underwear are at most uncomfortable, but it's easy to make it work. You can have some "oops" moments when your junk tries to sneak out (looking at you, panties with a weak elastic band). Of course, it's easier to wear boyshorts than low-cut panties. Fortunately, it happens that my favorite underwear are lace boyshorts (on me or my girlfriend). So sexy, comfortable AND affordable! I don't understand why women don't wear these more.

I knew someone in college who liked to cross dress. He was incredibly insecure about it, which didn't make sense to me because I knew the environment of the college and I knew he wouldn't be judged. He was kind of half in the closet, half not. He would have me paint his nails, I'd take photos of it, and he would tell me not to put them on Facebook. He said it was a secret. Then one day he would walk everywhere wearing a headband and other women's hair accessories in his hair. But you'd ask him about it and he'd act weird and evasive and act like it didn't happen.

Oh trust me, you get used to it. It feels really strange and uncomfortable at first because your balls just aren't used to it. However, I tend to avoid tucking ALL the way because I get a dull ache. Not to mention, I have a fear of getting testes torsion.

I agree. I don't wear any other kind.

Well, not lacy. Not a fan of lacy underwear, it scratches.

I used to work in a department store and had to work the occasional shift in the lingerie department. Once in a while I'd get a fellow shopping for himself and they tended to gravitate towards boyshorts as well. Guys buying for their girlfriends tended to go for buttfloss thongs (and be terminally embarrassed to be seen walking around with womens' underwear in hand.)

I like 'em myself, but agree with CarrieVS: no lace. Itchy.

This is just the perspective of a cishet scum outsider looking in, but it seems to me that as much as the LGBTQ community claims to represent all those groups equally it's more like a high school full of exclusive cliques who don't want to let any outsiders in.

In a way it makes sense because each group has its own issues and challenges in daily life, but then you get outliers like Vera who don't fit into any of the cliques and there aren't enough of them to fill up their own lunch table.

The LGBT "community" is pretty stupid.

Yeah, if their ultimate goal is to live freely in society without judgement, I don't see what's to be gained by doubling down on the judginess within their own ranks.

@ShuaiGuy I think it's the way they show off a bit of booty but leave something to the imagination. I'd bet seeing a hot babe trying to dig out a thong wedgie would sort of kill the moment, too.

I don't know that they speak to me on a spiritual level, but I certainly prefer them to thongs.

Pretty much, yeah.

Boyshorts are fucking nice. I love women's boxers too.

That's very true. It's kind of like using the term "minority" to mean anyone who isn't white. Every racial group has problems, and generally they (can) band together to do something that benefits them all, but they love/hate everyone in the large group just as much as they love/hate the people outside the group.


I have a problem with using the term minority when referring to women. I get that their status as equals has been challenged throughout most of history, but minority doesn't sound like the right word to use since there's just as many of us as there are of them. Just sounds silly.
