All Crossdressers Are Not Created Equal: Understanding Crossdressing and Dispelling Common Myths

You all who are familiar with my blog and writing style know how I have an affinity for posting what I like to call a “series” as opposed to just single, unrelated, individual posts. In that spirit, I am introducing with this entry a series of posts on common misconceptions and myths surrounding crossdressing. Many of you have expressed frustration and concerns over the erroneous ideas that the general population holds regarding crossdressers, so I am penning and dedicating these posts to all of you.

Myth #1:  All crossdressers are the same.

Fact: “Crossdresser” is a general, generic, all-encompassing term, which is used to describe one who enjoys dressing in clothing of the opposite sex. The degrees to which crossdressing men clad themselves in women’s attire can vary greatly. While one crossdresser may desire to wear only panties very infrequently, another crossdresser may prefer to fully dress (even including full make-up and wig) whenever they have the opportunity. Some crossdressers prefer to be minimal in their dressing while retaining their masculine identity (i.e., panty boys or those who enjoy panties and stockings), yet some crossdressers gravitate to flamboyant attire and exhibit ultra-feminine female speech and mannerisms (i.e., my fabulous sissies!). Dressing styles range from soft, classy, sophisticated, and/or conservative to sleek, sexy, and/or slutty to a combination of the two extremes, dependent upon the mood of the dresser. Crossdressers may remain in the closet and indulge only in private or they may venture out in public, trying to look as passable as possible. The bottom line is this: The crossdressing spectrum includes every combination of dress and behavior you can imagine.

Each crossdresser has his/her own unique history with crossdressing behavior (including its origin, beginnings, and evolution) and reasons (of which he may or may not be aware) for desiring to wear items of women’s clothing. Sexual titillation may or may not be the (most) predominant part of the crossdressing experience. Also, the degree of femininity felt through dressing varies in both expression and feeling across crossdressers. The mentality of crossdressing spans a great range, including the following: dressing to experience one’s softer side; experiencing overt sexual excitement;  longing to be humiliated; enjoying the feminization process; genuinely identifying as a female. Given the scope of possibilities, each crossdresser’s goals will depend upon the uniqueness of his/her perceptions, experiences, individual personality, and circumstances.

Note: Relevant literature generally breaks the catch-all term “crossdresser” down into the following: transvestites, drag queens, and transsexuals. (I will elaborate on the differences among these types of crossdressers in an upcoming entry.) Within the following posts, I will be using the term “crossdresser” to refer only to men who have a proclivity for dressing in various articles of women’s clothing (from panty boys to sissies) but do not have “real” transgender issues involved. When including crossdressing clients who are transgender in their self-perception, I will specifically use the “transgender” term for distinguishing purposes.
