    You are quite correct about society viewing women as lesser. Our society has been that way for hundreds of years, even at least a few thousand years. But that is not the case everywhere. There are in...

    I hear you April. I have wondered if my parents ever figured out why the women's section suffered the most wear and tear. They probably did and thought it was just the curiosity of a young boy. My,...

    You look great. And congrats on the move. I suspect back when we lived in caves there wasn't so much paperwork to do. Have we actually progressed or not?

    My favorites were my mother's slips and lipstick. The slips felt heavenly when I put them on. They triggered, ahem, a pleasant and strong response, to put it in G-rated terms. Lipstick did too. But...

    Welcome to the forum.

    There are some excellent theories of how and why all this happens and some are very credible with piles of evidence to support them. Unfortunately, none of them are easy to...

    When we got married there were only momentary hints of what had dominated my younger life. I was deeply embroiled in graduate school and had far too much to do in my life than to be concerned about...

    Christie, thank you for sharing your thoughts and the pattern of your interaction between two sides in a chimera situation. That is a very difficult condition to have. In a support group I was in...

    Personally, I do not distinguish between transgender and crossdresser in terms of the psychological traits and characteristics. Basically, transgender is a behavior where a person self identifies,...

    It is well known that as we get older our hormone balances change and shift. Even though hormones seem to play a secondary role in gender identity they are still important. They are part of the very...

    Bea, what you describe is not an unusual pattern at all. It has been well studied.

    During a traumatic event, whether brief or prolonged as in Charlotte's case, trauma tends to divert our...

    I wish you the best and want to reiterate what Crissy, Char, and Di said. Perhaps the most important thing is not making your cases but listening to what she says and her concerns. Keep it simple and...

    Maria, I think your wife really gets the gender thing very well. Gender is not how we look but how we are as a person irrespective of the clothes. Turn the table around. Take your wife and dress her...

    Fascinating thread. Glad you started it, Charlotte. Clearly this subject gets to the heart of being different in a world where most are more similar to each other - we are in a minority and that is...

    Gilly, I guess I don't really fantasize about being outed, but I do think about it a good deal, or at least I did in the not too distant past. I tend to run various scenarios of being outed more...

    Wonderful story Bobbi. Sounds like you have been blessed. And you are quite right about first impressions. Unfortunately it can also go the other way. I had a neighbor who seemed really nice and...

    Hard to speculate as to what is going on there. It could be revenge through acting classic gender binary style to give you a taste of what some women have to put up with. Maybe trying to swing the...

    Good question, Di.

    Like others, in my virtually 76 years I have to say the biggest challenge has been self acceptance. I had no problem with that until I got caught playing with my mother's...

    What a tale that could have been much, much worse. You make a great argument for wearing pocket bras in public. I think I might well have died right there in the parking lot. :straightface:

    GretchenM = Gretchen Marie. I thought Marie went real nicely with Gretchen - it kind of flows. One person I communicate with through regular email always addresses me as Gretchen Marie. Feels nice.
