    Crossdresser but straight

    Hi all,

    I am a crossdresser but I am pretty sure I am straight. I like girls and not guys that's for sure.

    I just enjoy looking dressing up like girls. Is that weird?

    That's the reality for me Gina.
    But the perception is VERY different.
    I shop at a cute little resale place in my town and the owner is a lovely lady who doesn't judge, one day while trying on a dress and asking her opinion she made a remark the indicated she thought i was gay, and she seemed sorta shocked to find out the exact opposite was true.

    If you are weird then that covers me as well. Been dressing for a zillion years and have no interest in men, just love women, but rather oddly drawn to get dressed like one when I can...lol.

    Most crossdressers are straight, about 80% or so. Exactly why we crossdress is subject to a whole lot of different reasons. Don't fret. You're in the majority of us. About 2.5% of all men crossdress on a regular basis, but nearly all of us are 'in the closet' because society doesn't accept males who identify as females in any way. Welcome to the forum. There are plenty like us here. Sadly, there are few if any single women here who accept crossdressers as potential mates.
    Some causes of crossdressing you've probably never even considered: My TG biography at:http://www.crossdressers.com/forums/...=1#post1490560
    There's an addendum at post # 82 on that thread, too. It's about a ten minute read.
    Why don't we understand our desire to dress, behave and feel like a girl? Because from childhood, boys are told that the worst possible thing we can be, is a sissy. This feeling is so ingrained into our psyche, that we will suppress any thoughts that connect us to being or wanting to be feminine, even to the point of creating separate personalities to assign those female feelings into.

    Gina, to give you an idea of how not unusual that is, there has been organized groups and clubs for heterosexual crossdressers going back to the early 50s. You are certainly not the only one, and heterosexual transvestism is not a new phenomenon, you are one of many out there!

    Your title "CROSSDRESSER BUT STRAIGHT" is an implication that you are of the opinion that crossdressers are gay or bi. You have so much to learn. I know that in time you will see the difference, please don't use the old social stigmatism........................ that "crossdresser" = gay or bi.
    It's almost like saying you like Elton John, or Ellen DeGenerus, or the rock group Queen, BUT I'm straight.

    In Ginas defense, many of us have been and are very much in the closet but wishing to interact with other crossdressers.. Let's face it, we all have the same challenges and joys with shopping, how, when and where we dress, getting caught, etc. And it is wonderful to be part of a sharing community online. However, i explored a number of sites before finding this one - and I'm glad I did - and in some, as soon as you join you get propositioned. I'm not into that and that is certainly not why I am here. So, if announcing orientation right up front puts off some of those unwanted advances, then that's not entirely bad. In the grand scheme of things, whatever one's orientation is fine. Here I'm just looking to be girly.

    I believe most crossdressers are straight. I am. I have never had a sexual or romantic feeling towards another male.

    There are some on this forum who identify themselves as "transgendered" and that's fine with me, but some folks insist that any male who crossdresses is transgendered or gay.

    The majority of cross dressers are heterosexual.

    Straight (but not narrow) here too!

    I think the perception of the general (non CD) population is that guy that likes to wear women's clothes is gay. Obviously there is a lot wrong with that perception, but still that's what seems to be the thought. In reality, the percentage of CD's that are straight are most likely exactly the same percentage of males that are straight. In other words, if 98% of the total male population is straight, then you can expect 98% of the crossdressing male population to be straight.

    That leads to the obvious conclusion that crossdressing and sexual preferences are separate phenomena.

    Are Crossdressers Gay?

    Contrary to what most people think, here are the facts written by a psychologist that studied this subject:

    This is the worst of all myths about crossdressers. Most crossdressers

    are in fact heterosexual people. In all surveys it has been found that only

    about 5 percent of them were gay.

    What percentage of the population is gay?

    Estimates range from 2% to 10%

    So the percentage of people who crossdress that are gay and the percentage of the population who are gay is pretty much the same. So being homosexual seems not to be a factor why people crossdress.

    Think this may answer your question.
    Don't Take Life To Serious, It's Only Temporary

    CHOICE
    It is often wrongly assumed that a person chooses to be transgender and one day decides they want to live the remainder of their life as transgender .This couldn't be further from the truth. Transgender is established sometime during pregnancy, probably in the first three months and certainly well before an individual is able to make a choice.

    I'm in the same boat. I'm anything but gay and have NEVER had a gay thought. I LOVE everything about women and enjoy trying to emulate them.

    Take crossdressing out of it for a second. Are you attracted to guys? If not, you're not gay.
    Is crossdressing, that you enjoy dressing like a girl, weird? Yes, if you ask the general public. No, if you ask us.

    There's a difference between sexual preference and gender identification/presentation. All of us, crossdresser or not, come in all combinations.

    I have a weird situation on my hands... I am Just like you, I am not into men, I love to wear female things and love to be in touch with my feminine side... The weird part is my SO is trying hard to get me to have sex with a man, its become a very hot thought for her and it does make us hot in fantasy.... Just don't know about that in reality. However, its a fact, most cross dressers are not gay... Maybe we just love women so much we want to be one too - sometimes. :-)

    I think its time for me to ask that question here....

    What??? I thought you were supposed to dress like a woman if you liked women. That's the way I heard it anyway. You mean there are some who like women but don't dress like them? Jeez, I guess I can get rid of all my stuff then.
