See You in Xenia

My Internet presence will be sporadic from now until Monday as I will be traveling to and from the Dayton, Ohio area to attend the annual ham radio convention, Hamvention.

I will try to post when I can, but my dance card is usually so full during Hamvention that I have very little time to get on the net.

If you are attending Hamvention, I will be staffing TAPR's booths in Building 5 of the Greene County Fairgrounds in Xenia, Ohio. Maybe we can have an eyeball QSO!

Anyways, I am cutting this post short because I have to finish packing.

And so it goes.

My Turn

Last week, I asked for your suggestions about how to improve the blog. In response, I received 14 comments and one e-mail. Following is a summary of what you wrote.

Seven readers were happy with the blog as is.

Two readers would like too see more guest posts.
Actually, I encourage everyone to post here. I do reserve the right to reject a guest post, but I seldom have in the past. In fact, I cannot recall ever rejecting a guest post.
One reader suggested that I provide the links for the sources of femulator photos.
Good suggestion and I do provide the links when I can, but I usually can't because I don't remember the sources.
If you need to find a source for a photo, upload a copy of the photo to Google Images, which is very good at locating sources.
That same reader suggested that I "stop mocking women who are not as pretty as you."
First, thank you for saying that I am "pretty." 
Second, I apologize for the mocking, but I cannot recall ever mocking anyone.
Two readers suggested that I avoid politics, while four readers were ok with my expressing political opinions and two readers were ok with my expressing opinions, in general.
I have been writing this blog for over 11 years and during that time, I usually avoid politics. Besides promoting the election of the greatest president in recent times, I only get political when a politician tries to turn his/her transphobic views into law.    
The current occupant of the White House is conducting a "War on Transgenders" that has the potential of negatively affecting my freedom, as well as the freedom of most of the readers of this blog. 
If you don't mind losing the freedom to live life as your true gender, then click the Next Blog button at the top of this page. But I do mind and I will continue to express my views on the matter until that despicable human residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue resigns.

Crossdresser or Pretty-Dresser?

Transistor Dept.

I know some of you are radio-inclined, so if you are attending Hamvention next week, I'd love to see you in person. I will be staffing TAPR's booths in Building 5 of the Greene County Fairgrounds and attending the annual TAPR-AMSAT banquet Friday evening. CUL

I had a revelation last night when I was reading your comments to yesterday's post (If sugar and spice and everything nice was a boy thing).

Stephanie asked, if we lived in a world where males dressed like females and females dressed like males, would I (a cisgender male) "still desire to wear the clothing of the opposite sex like I do in the real world I exist in now?"

This may start a firestorm, but here is what I thought.

If you answer "yes," then you are a male-to-female transexual. You are really a woman and you crossdress to present as your true gender. The clothes are not important; gender is what matters to you.

If you answer "no," then you are not a transexual. You are really a "pretty-dresser," that is, you like to dress pretty and in order to fit in, you may even speak and act like the gender that "normally" dresses pretty. The clothes and all the trappings of the pretty-dressing is what matters to you.

And so it goes.

If sugar and spice and everything nice was a boy thing

The boys in Girls & Boys

Stephanie Sometimes wrote, "Some time ago you posted a movie trailer for a Swedish film called Girls & Boys. The premise was that girls wore jeans, tees and Keds while the boys wore skirts, dresses, heels, hose and makeup like the boys in the photo from the film (above).

"My question is if I was living in that reality being a guy in silk satin and lace, would I still desire to wear the clothing of the opposite sex like I do in the real world I exist in now. I wonder if your followers have opinions on this subject.

"I know I would be in heaven to live in that alternative reality, but would my desire to be the opposite sex drive me into the drab 'boy' clothes that the girls wear in the film?"

Comments, opinions, what say Femulate readers?

Your Turn

Any suggestions?

I like writing this blog and I assume people like reading it with nearly 14 million hamburgers sold.

Can I do better?

Is there anything I can do here that would increase the value of reading this blog for you?

I am always open to your suggestions, so please leave comments below or, if you prefer, e-mail me by clicking here.

I look forward to reading and implementing your suggestions, so have at it!
