our female admirers

I understand why a spouse or significant other (SO) would not embrace crossdressing by their partner. Among other things, she may feel that her man is less of a man if he crossdresses.

I don't understand why the other women are often very enthusiastic when they encounter a crossdresser that is not their spouse or SO (not that there is anything wrong with that).

I frequently encounter other women who gush over my crossdressing. Believe me, I love their appreciation for what I am doing, but I am at a loss as to the reason for their appreciation.

Maybe some of the women who gush over crossdressers get some satisfaction from the fact that a member of the so-called "dominant sex" is trying to emulate a member of the so-called "weaker sex." ("Welcome to our club.")

Maybe some women admire crossdressers for being true to themselves.

I dunno. It's just another conundrum in a long line of conundrums that crossdressers encounter.

  2. Thank you for the kind words, Haley.

    I dunno what is up with my mailbox because I am getting other e-mails without a problem. Check my e-mail address, staci-staci @ sbcglobal.net (without spaces); maybe we messed up a character in the darkness of the bar Friday night.

    Staci,
    Yes, I feel the same. We especially want that recognition, connection, even approval from real women. It validates our femininity and womanly traits.
    I am just getting out of a self-imposed closet, and working this out with my wife, who is supportive and approving... so i feel that same 'tug'.

  4. I recently "came out" to a coworker and was invited to her house while dressed. I asked if she minded crossdressers and she said she was fine with it. I then asked if she would be OK if her boyfriend was a crossdresser and, no hesitation, she said "no".
