|Femulating at Airline High School, Bossier City, Louisiana, in 1982|
In case you don’t read comments that follow my blog posts, Paulette had this to say about Friday’s All the Pretty School Girls post.
I hesitate to cast a cloud over anything you do on this site, having been a big fan for many years.
(Now comes the 'but'...)
However, have you considered the possibility that these old buried cross-dressing photos (aka womanless beauty pageants) are better left undisturbed? In today's fevered environment, being outed on the internet could be most unwelcome. A dusty schoolbook yearbook is - thankfully for many - lost to history. And despite our prurient fascination in others like ourselves, we have no right to dig up potential problems that will strike 40-50 year olds and their families, like a proverbial bolt from the blue.
On more than one occasion, I have considered Paulette’s point, but fter writing about and posting over 4,000 womanless images from online school yearbooks, I have never received a complaint that someone has been outed. I believe there are primarily two reasons for this:
Although we like to think differently, most of the people in the images are not femulators. Their high school femulation was a one time occurrence, so there is nothing to be outed about.
About half of the images do not name the people captured in the photo; their anonymity provides protection from being outed.
If anyone ever complains, I will delete their photo immediately.
