it's not "just a clothes issue" for the vast majority of cross dressers.
I am grossed out by cross dressers - men should look like men and women should look like women.
He's now married to a woman who likes putting make-up on him and they have two babies.
In recent years, I've discovered it's a manifestation of a submissive personality (because we're still considered the weaker/submissive sex) - go to a good dominatrix/dungeon site and you will see "feminization" on the menu.
When I used to work in the clothing world I use to have a man come to me every few month and help him pick out womens outfits. A lot of other girls thought it was weird and called him a freak but it didn't bother me in the least.
I don't think he was gay, he certainly didn't stike me that way, he said he enjoyed dressing in womens clothes and the fabrics were nicer. After a year I found myself looking forward to his visits.
Cross-dresser = straight Transvestite = gay Transgender = "wrong body", some overlap with transvestites but NOT cross-dressers.

Why do I cross dress - is it because I am believing that women are submissive - no way.they are also one of the groups with the highest percentage who face hate crimes, are beaten or killed for a condition they have no control over, so be nice!each year there is a national transgender day of remembrance (this years is on november 19th) to honour those who have been killed for being transgender.To the second response - women can wear mens clothes and in this day and age no-one batters an eye - but if a man wears a womens - he's sick - go figure that one out!!Thursday, September 13, 2007, AM I have close friends - a couple, and the male is a cross dresser. Otherwise, he is a "regular sport watching dude" He was very afraid to tell her when they started dating, but she embraced it! Thursday, September 13, 2007, AM The reason he's "sick" is coz he not only wears womens' clothes, but he wears make-up, wigs, etc.Wednesday, September 12, 2007, PM Firstly - I don't think that it is courage to cross dress.
