    When I do my guy laundry it's really simple. White tee shirts and shorts in one load. Everything else in another. Presto! Done. The female stuff? Got to read the labels. Hand wash. Hang dry. Dry with low heat. Dry on flat surface. Hand wash hosiery. Hand wash lingerie. Ironing? Cool iron. This reminds me I have to go wash my panties.

    I just finished doing my weekly laundry. Stephanie is absolutely right. I think it takes longer to do my laundry than dress. My hose are alive! Always all tangled up. What temperature both to wash and dry? Wrap in a towel. How much soap? My wife hangs her bras...so do I. Actually, I enjoy doing my laundry. Of course, I have to dress...seem appropriate.

    Just how uncomfortable lingerie can be.

    Don't get me wrong, a pair of silky nylon panties can be divine. I love putting on a slip or a nightie as well.

    But wearing a bra and a garter belt and stockings for an entire day - things get very warm and after a number of hours the sexy feeling wears off.

    Last week I missed a movie because I couldn't decide on what to wear.

    Clothing almost always looks better on the hanger than my body.

    Eyeliner can be a serious PITA

    Gravel Driveways WILL tear up a good pair of heels

    Makeup is expensive.

    In girl mode I am more conscious of ensuring that colours match. Skirt and top, necklace and dress, shoes and skirt, etc. Etc.
    And it really can take ages to get ready.

    At first it was putting on eyeliner, although I'm pretty good with it after all these years.

    Using the bathroom while wearing a floor length gown, LOL hard to remain ladylike in that scenario.

    I've come to understand how hard it is to dress as a woman. The worst time is spent in doing makeup and preparing one's hair.
    I've never been able to get the part right in my hair.

    For me it's the, what I can only really call, engineering that goes into some of the clothes. Also, something that always amuses me is that ladies clothes always have an indication as to which side is the back, because sometimes it's not immediately clear :-) :-) :-)

    Looking in the mirror and thinking, my face is fat. The same face in dude mode that doesn't seem fat. Fixing my hair, and trying different looks. Are barrettes really that hard to do. On a wig, you bet. Nails, yes, chipping a freshly coated nail argh. The nervousness of vunerability.

    Pat mentioned the loss of male privileged, and being subjected to it, and while there is truth in that, for me this experience has also occurred even in male mode. I think there is a pecking order to that, and even males are subjected to it, even the ones that become alphas. We were all young once, and few are born as alphas. And do not forget, there are certainly alpha females out there as well, so even in the female experience subjugation to privileged is not consistent or as universal.

    ...what I didn't know? Many of the things everyone has already expressed plus the bare minimum beauty lotions, potions etc. that are required for the face and body. There are facial cleansers, moisturizers, and so forth.
    Also, I like the benefits of carry a handbag.
