    Ultimately, self acceptance should completely remove the sense of guilt and shame. OK, that is the theory. In practice it is not so simple. I now feel only a little of that shame and guilt under...

    I don't go out fully dressed mainly because I rarely fully dress at all. But I am almost constantly showing some aspect of the feminine expression that is a vital and integral part of my total...

    I agree Barbara Jo and I think the philosopher's statement is quite true when it is taken and applied seriously. And that is exactly what I see when I see CD/Trans people who have a normal "fit in"...

    I think it is great that you are working on your voice. My sense is that many don't bother anymore and, to me, that is fine as well. I think if you are able to actually look quite female because you...

    Not at all. I wear whatever I want and which is consistent with who I am at the time in terms of identity. That said, I am usually a blend of mild male and mild female and ambiguous enough that...

    Debs, I think that is probably a really hard thing to put numbers to. Here in my city there is definitely a pattern anyone can see. In a few areas there is an abundance of CD-Trans people, both MTF...

    I rarely dress fully as I don't go out. But my normal attire and interaction behavior trends toward hints of being fairly female-like. Gentle voice, a modicum of female mannerisms and expressions,...

    Ellie, you have definitely found the correct equation. But a lot of that is just being a good person that people enjoy being around. It appears you are that way in a big way.

    Yep, been there, done that - 10 years ago. It is a wise but risky move. My wife had no idea I was that way even after 43 years of marriage. One might assume I was pretty good hiding it - not so....

    Kandi, I think you make some good points. But others also make good points that it can be dangerous. We are still in a world where there are some who cannot stand it when someone is different and...

    Welcome back Rhonda. Been a very long time. An interesting account about the changes and then the slow return.

    When there is stress I try not to rock the boat as that often just increases the stress. That is not useful and I view it as a very masculine behavioral trait and I generally try to avoid going into...

    I think she was mostly very curious. She has probably seen it before, but doesn't have much experience interacting with a crossdresser. I also suspect the contrast between a strong female-like...
