I'm a (male presenting as female) crossdresser and am partially out of the closet about it. My parents know, three ex girlfriends know, two friends know, my counselor knows, and (oddly enough) my minister knows.
I think I have a very good idea of what the downsides to being a CD are (Hell, I spent a good hour earlier tonight wallowing in the downsides
). However, I am struggling to think of positive aspects of being a crossdresser.
I can think of positive aspects for many things that might cause difficulty in a relationship, but I can't think of significant positive aspects for what tends to ail mine. So, fellow MeFites, what are positive aspects to being a crossdresser?
The following threads were somewhat helpful:
(especially this comment
Other possibly relevant info:
- I’m 30 & I’ve known I was a crossdresser since age 12
- Depending on the day, I’m 90 to 99% sure I’m not mtf trans
- I was suicidal about it a couple of times but not any more (see counselor above, also 1-800 hotlines)
- I live in the same metro area as the new season of The A-List on Logo
