    Gaming While Dressed?

    This might be a weird question...

    I assume everyone has a somewhat different persona while dressed? If so, do you engage in some of the same activities you enjoy as a male while in female mode? Further, are there any CD gamers here?

    I have no "different persona while dressed". While I may pretend to be female, especially if I am out in public, my tastes and beliefs do not change.

    And no, I am not a CD gamer.

    I don't change. Female presenting me is the real me, and I am also the real me - I just wear different clothes.

    That's interesting. Perhaps "persona" isn't the right word. As odd as it might sound, I feel more confident when I'm dressed. It's like a different version of myself but still myself if that makes any sense. And it gives me permission to be more feminine and more aggressive in a way.

    I probably defer to those who cross dress for reason other than gender non-conformity, but I will give it a shot. To the first question, I do not think I manifest a different persona when dressed. I may consciously try to manage my voice a little, and maybe there are mannerisms I repress when obliged to be in male mode that are more freely expressed when in female attire. As for the activities I enjoy, yes, I pretty much do the same things regardless of how I may be dressed...unless its some particularly dirty/oily/messy task. In that case i wear grungy old male clothes.

    I am not a gamer...I find video/online games to be addictive. I have enough other problems already.

    Nope, I am the same person DRAG or DRAB. The only thing that changes is the clothes.

    Since I am not "out" I really don't do the same things. I am a guy... and when I dress I am a guy. As much as I would like to mentally feel more feminine I don't. Its too hard to try to "act" feminine, takes the fun out of dressing for me. I am just me in a dress. I definitely feel more feminine. I look more feminine. Whatever it is.. I enjoy and that what matters.

    I think this makes sense!!!

    Hi Gwen

    When i do dress i notice that there are some changes in my personality. Nothing too drastic but when I dress it seems that all of the white noise fades into the background and i am able to be just a nicer calmer version of myself. I have never been out while dressed so I do not know for sure if it would hold true when i am in public.

    I have had a lot more time dressed as of late and I often like to do my everyday things while dressed. I have enjoyed my hobbies while dressed such as playing guitar and one night I took out my telescope and spent hours admiring the stars while dressed.

    I used to play a lot of Call of Duty and HALO on the Xbox and also Mech Warrior on the PC. I have not gamed in awhile however due to circumstances keeping me busy and when i do have a little time my guitar time takes precedence.

    Nice to make your acquaintance and welcome to the forum!

    Rachel

    Thanks Lana! I just sold my 2600 before moving. I had a "heavy sixer", one of the ones that was made in California. So much fun to see the evolution of the game console!

    I used to game while being dressed up in the past when I didn't have a roommate, but I never felt like I acted differently... Though in those instances I was playing with my regular friend group

    I think if I had been playing with randoms (and actually had the vocal skills to pass lol) I probably would have experimented with acting more feminine. Would be pretty hard though cause I can get super competitive in games haha 😅

    I’m not exactly a cd, I’m out and feminine 100%, but I’m also totally a gamer. I’ve always played as female characters given the choice, but it’s never changed how I act, or feel. It did definitely give me a safe space to express my real feelings about myself but I have pretty much always been myself!
    I’m on Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo, feel free to message me if you wanna add me!

    Oh, awesome! I have always loved playing a female character too. I love when games allow you the option. Mass Effect was one of my favorites, and Saints Row! Nowadays, I mainly play my Nintendo Switch, but I'd love more friends for the neglected friend list.

    Same, girl! I loved Mass effect!! Not only playing as a female character, but also getting to romance another female character made me feel seen!
    If you wanna send me a message I’d be so happy to add you as my friend!

    I was the same way! My Female Shepherd was in love with Liara through all three games .

    I currently can't send any messages, but I will get in touch as soon as I can.

    GwenHerself,

    Mostly ‘World of Warcraft’, but sometimes I play ‘World or Warships’ too. And there are a lot of times I am adventuring fully dressed and feminine.

    Crossdressers make up a wide spectrum. About the only thing we all have is common is, feminizing ourselves makes us happy.

    My persona doesn't change when I dress. I never developed a female alter-ego. I am the same person, and only the clothes changes.

    While some of us are gamers, I am not one of them.

    "Things I do as a male in female mode?"

    All I can think of r eating, drinking, and going potty.

    No wait, never mind! Eating and drinking I wear lipstick and worry about eating or drinking my wigs!
    And, I go to the Ladies Room and sit down in fem mode. So, nothing, I guess?

    The games I play when dressed r a LOT more physically involved than computer games!

    U can't keep doing the same things over and over and expect to enjoy life to the max. When u try new things, even if they r out of your comfort zone, u may experience new excitement and growth that u never expected.

    Challenge yourself and pursue your passions! When your life clock runs out, you'll have few or NO REGRETS!

    My personality doesn't change.
    I just exhibit more of the "softer" aspects of it. I'm more open to people and more tolerant. I drive differently and am more considerate to other drivers. Of course I carry myself differently and speak more softly. I don't feel the need to be the "Alpha" all the time and that's refreshing to me.
    I don't game, but I used to. I played the Tiger Woods golf game for a long time and always in female persona.
    Wear what makes you feel Confident !

    One might suspect that lining up for a race off, whether gaming or in real life, 90 degrees off kilter, actually increases "drag"?
