    Is the way you carry your purse telling others you might be a crossdresser??

    The other day walking into work I just happened to notice that +90% of the women had their purses on their left shoulder... And over the last day that seems to be the number for every woman I've passed... But all of the men entering the building had their computer bags on their right shoulders.. And funny too.. I carry both purse and pc bag on my right side..

    Assuming most people are right handed... Do right handed women carry their purses on their left side and right handed men carry stuff on their right side?

    What hand do you write with and what side do you carry your purse? What does your SO do if you have one?

    Karen I carry my bag on my left shoulder, I wear my watch on my left wrist ............ I am right handed
    I allow myself to set healthy boundaries ..... to say no to what does not align with my values, to say yes to what does.
    Boundaries assist me to remain healthy, honest and living a life that is true to me

    Now you come to mention it Karren, I do carry my purse on my right shoulder, I'm also right handed.
    Guess I'll have to remember this next time I'm out and carry my purse on my left shoulder.

    Jeeze, something else to remember, I don't think I'll ever get the hang of this crossdressing lark

    I was woman watching outside a Ultra Tuesday, I noticed the over the shoulder thing. I thought it was a security idea, to keep it close. Where are the girls keeping their hockey sticks?

    Karren, even though this is 2010, and men do sometimes carry a purse, I think the mere fact that you ARE carrying a purse might just let people know that you may be a crossdresser. Of course....I could be totally wrong???
    Now if I did go out dressed and carried a purse, I'm pretty sure I would carry it over my left shoulder. It would just make it easier to get things from it since I am right handed. When I have my laptop bag, it is almost always hanging from my right side.
    Perhaps we need a poll for this one.....or.....I'm still tired from staying up through 3 overtime periods last night watching the Pens drop that game??

    well I would watch my wife but she dont carry a purse. She hands me her license and says here carry this and away we go. I have a purse or two but she dont let me take mine along (says I look like a puss) I dont know what a cat has to do with it but anyway, I will watch that maybe that why I get read so easy! hmmm I doubt it though

    Naw, I carry everything on my left shoulder, tool bag, computer bag, personal bag (sometimes all at once) and when dressed my purse on my left shoulder as well (see my pic in my album). I am right handed, but I rarely carry anything on my right side.

    Just because I do carry it on my left shoulder doesent mean I'm not going to get read though!

    I am a right-handed gg, and carry my purse on my right shoulder.
    I never in my life gave one thought to how anybody carried their purse...

    and after I typed the above I went and picked up my purse like I was going to work and yeah I use the right shoulder but it looked awful silly with the flannel nightgown..

    I am allowed to wear a flannel nightie here right???

    Oh, uh, not to mix up threads here, but imagine the poor guy who hides from his wife that he crossdresses then at the mall or somewhere he has to stand there holding her purse... I feel for THAT guy!

    You can wear it only if you don't tell anyone.. Too late! Ha! I think that's its you flannel fetish that has you wearing your purse on the off-standard side.. I'd seek prfessional help immediately!

    I'm right handed, and carry to the left.
    Unless I put my purse in the child seat. If I do that, I put the seatbelt thingie through the strap to make it harder to steal if my back is turned to look at somting.

    I think this is the first theory I've had that the data could prove correct.. With some minor exceptions that can be explained away.. I'm running a simular thread on another forum with simular results..

    Now if I can just get some better data on my theorized link between crossdressing and alien abductions!! I could write a book and supiment my retirement account! Lol.

    Yeah!!! As long as their flannel in the house I can use statistics to explain that!! And though I don't want to do it, I will use the "CDs are notorious liars" card if I have to!! Hahaha

    I had heard once that when out walking both men & women should put things to the outside. (Streetside). I guess that would always put your purse between you & your date. For the men, Right handed mostly, They than have their right hand free to grab, fight back or whatever if someone tries to take it. Don't know how true it is but thats the best reasons I ever heard.

    Well...I'm left handed in just about everything. Purse always goes over the left shoulder and my watch is always on the left wrist. I'm kind of curious about this and will look at other women to see what they do.

    Janelle and I must have read The Same Article. If you carry your Purse on The Streetside, less likely that some guy could run alongside you on The Sidewalk and snatch it. It also frees up your right hand, to grab your can of Mace and spray that Dirtbag!

    Peace and Love, Joanie

    Wouldn't that mean that British and Australian women would have their purses on the opposite side as North Americans... I know in Australia I was walking down the street on the right side and this female jogger about ran me over when she came at me running on the left?

    Plus that would hold true in large cities... When was the last time you saw someones purse snached in a midwestern farming village? More likely to get your purse run over by a farm impliment... Or eaten by a wayward heffer....

    And here in Pittsburgh if your wearing a Steelers or a Penguins Jersey (Pirates.... Nahhhh). Then no one will bother you.. Even criminals here are sports fans firstly.. Now if your wearing anything from Cleveland and have a purse you might end up naked on the turnpike back to Ohio... But that's whole other issue! Lol.

    Switch hitter here If it's a shoulder bag, it's on the left side. But a short strap purse is usually over my right elbow.BJ

    I tend to carry my purse on left side and i'm left handed....it seems that women have the right idea....by carrying the purse on the left side it frees the right hand when the woman reaches for items at the store.... i tend to lift my left shoulder up to support the bag...when i reach for something with my left hand the bag always falls to my arm.... SUCH A PAIN!

    so as a left hander, i should probably carry on the right side so i can shop more comfortably....right girls?????

    and as right handers, you all need to start carrying on the left side so you can shop better too....Sounds like a plan! thanks for bringing this up Karren!
