not my hobby

"A hobby is an activity or interest that is undertaken for pleasure or relaxation, often in one's spare time," according to Wikipedia.

Using that definition, you can call crossdressing "a hobby" because some crossdressers do it for pleasure, others for relaxation, some do it for both reasons, and most do it in their spare time.

Ham radio is my hobby, crossdressing is not.

I do not crossdress. I femulate, that is, I emulate a female.

Emulate means "to strive to equal or excel," according to Merriam-Webster's Online Dictionary.

I do not femulate in my spare time; I femulate all the time. Whether I am dressed in male or female garb, my heart, mind and soul are femulating.

And so it goes


  1. I totally agree!! My Hobby is waterski. I do that on my spare time, yet I don't go arround my everyday feeling I am skiing. I feel my self a lady even dressed in boy mode, at the office, at home, with my friends, al family reunions, evrywhere everyday. it is not hobby for me.. its a life style. a great one by the way.

  2. Absolutely, girl-dom is not a part-time occupation.

    Hobbies, now male impersonation is mine. At work, at the shops, in town, I bloke it up shamelessly. It's amazing how outrageous you can be and what you can get away with and people don't suspect a thing!

  3. I read the text and was going to comment. Then I saw the graphic.

    Well written, Staci.

    Someday, we will have to meet (again?).

    73 & 88 de W1..

  4. To my sister ham radio operators --- The conference I am attending en femme in May is the Dayton Hamvention.

  5. Well judging by present company you may find yourself needing that secret handshake.

    Perhaps an extension to the Q-codes?

  6. @Jenny - I was going to suggest "QRT", but I think that one is taken.

    And this of all years I'll not be going. If I didn't have a commitment to my niece to run video for her dance studio's recital, I'd be there.

    I wish you the best, and do tell us how it went!

    Hugs, Jenna

    P.S., I was thinking maybe QRF (I femulate / do you femulate?)

    I too will be in Dayton, although likely my femulation will be constrained between the four hotel room walls. Good luck & have fun!
