Sharing the total sum of who we are as a man and woman is an important exercise for many of us.
I received my first negative comment yesterday attached to the post of the announcement of the release of Living with Crossdressing: Defining a New Normal. This woman’s comment advised me that crossdressing was not normal, but a schizophrenia on par with pedophilia and the mind of rapists.
This story serves to illustrate that members of our community can walk into a regular diner and not be gawked at or whispered about.
I am always spouting out positive quotes and statements about going beyond tolerance and into acceptance and fellowship.

I was going to pick out a pair of panties and grabbed one of my favorites. There are a number of reasons why. First, it is a pair of high-cut bikini briefs that were in fashion in the 80s and early 90s. Second, I love the look and feel of the stretchy material. Lastly, and maybe most importantly, they were a hand-me-down from my girlfriend.
There is speculation among some that crossdressing men are not, by nature, to be considered transgender. Sure, crossdressers can be assigned to the term transvestite or tranny (as it relates to transvestism), but some believe that crossdressers are not part of the transgender group because of crossdressers do not feel a deep-rooted need to become the opposite gender.
I had never attempted dressing as Savannah in a women’s swimsuit for a pool party/BBQ. What to do?

Are people so insecure about who that are that they feel so threatened by Montreal-based artist Sophie Labelle and her weekly webcomic Assigned Male?
Could it be true? Is it possible that the average American citizen wouldn’t be up for hanging out with a transgender man or woman?
