I honestly think crossdressers set a bad example for the trans* community and are part of the reason we aren't taken seriously and why being trans* is still considered a mental illness in the DSM despite attempts to remove it.
We're all for anything unusual, intruiging and sexy!
It's been great to read the comments here: I suspected that a proportion of the women's clothing sold on EF is sold to men and vice versa, and now I see some indications that that is the case. Shall continue to keep this in mind when doing lingerie reviews (&maybe have my husband do one!).
I'm not bothered a bit by crossdressers. They're not a turn on, but not a turn off. I'm perfectly happy to be with one.
Considering all the factors, I would call myself a crossdresser. I prefer femme as it doesn't carry the same weight, but I am a man, I enjoy wearing things most people would consider feminine, and being trans* hasn't changed that.
It just means I didn't have to change my wardrobe when I finally came to terms with it
I am a nonbinary trans* person who also sometimes crossdresses (if that makes any sense) but it's not a sexual thing for me necessarily. Sometimes it is a fun part of sex, but not always. Generally speaking, I have no particular fondness for or aversion to people who crossdress, be that for sexual reasons or otherwise.
I love cross-dressing, but I don't do it because it turns me on. I do it when it feels like it matches my gender identity at that time. That being said, I have seen some damn sexy cross-dressers. But I think that's just because I like sexy people period. I don't really have a preference towards any gender representation.
I'm trans, and I'm interested in crossdressing but wouldn't be comfortable with it until I've physically transitioned further. I partly see this as a personal weakness, since it's messages from society that would make me feel less comfortable in my gender if I crossdressed, but what can you do?
