    Acceptance!

    I went to a baby shower on June 2nd and since I am not out to the daughter in law's family, I went as male me! Then June 3rd was my birthday and my sister in law took us out for breakfast and she has not seen me dressed yet, so I again dressed as male me! At the end of the day my daughter asked me why I did not dress on my birthday! This is the daughter who did not want to see daddy in a dress! Then she bought me a camera to take pictures at my transformation! Next she offered help with zippers and fastening necklaces and putting in earrings! She then became my photographer and now this! Wow! I feel so blessed to have her! Yes, I tell her everyday that I love her! Hugs Lana Mae

    If you play it right and do it slowly acceptance does come quickly.

    I think curiosity plays a big part, it is something you have to let others get used to or ask you to perform.

    I mean that nicely and it is great that you are progressing well.
    Work on your elegance,
    and beauty will follow.

    Wanting something is a fantasy which on a long time period clouds your mind and makes you think you need it.

    I think due to recent exposure of cross dressing/transvestite, its more accepted now, when I go out I can feel the difference in attitude, I get clocked, but can see n there face "what the hell", hes not doing any harm. And I can honestly feel that people are more tolerant towards a dressed up person.

    Wow! That is so great- I think we are a known item in the universe and my daughter told me that when she told her friends they said- "he should write a memoir and talk about that!"- Her boyfriend thoughtfully sent me Grayson Perry's book 'The Descent of Man'- so you may have a nice opportunity to be a beloved dad who is also a special case of sorts, but beloved and accepted. I felt that with my mom, and it liberated my soul in a tremendous way. Talk with your daughter- mine was able to say a lot. Yours, like mine, may just want you to be consciously aware of your surroundings but not afraid.

    Either way, what a wonderful bday present!
    We are all beautiful...!

    You've often mention that your daughter wasn't ready to see Daddy dressed.
    I'm happy to hear that she's moved ahead. Hopefully she's comfortable with this.
    Happy Birthday.
