Alan's Day Out

I don't know how this one slipped under my radar, but Lynn gave me a heads-up about a femulation article that appeared in the August 2001 issue of Marie Claire. In that article, actor Alan Cumming, who has a history of femulating in various roles on television and stage, femulated among civilians for a day to see how it felt to do a series of every day things as a woman as compared to doing the same things as a man.

Been there, done that, if you know what I mean. I found it interesting, but not surprising that Alan's experience as a woman in public were similar to mine.

Lynn sent me a link to seven photos from the article [file names Marie Claire 6/01 (1) to (7)], but not the text of the article. I searched high and low for the text, but could not find it. If anyone has it or knows where it is, I'd love to see it and share it.

And may all your days out be wonderful!

  2. I remember reading that very article and thinking how good it would be, to go out, rather than hiding away at home.

    It took a while, but I made it eventually. Some things are worth the wait, IMHO.

    Good luck to any of you, thinking about stepping out.

  3. I love the character he plays in the "Good Wife", great actor

    it was right on his website

  5. Always seemed like I did more but that pretty much summed it up. All that usually took a few hours.
