Comment on Trans-Gressions by Charline D'Aoust https://equal.org/2013/10/11/trans-gressions/#comment-57 Fri, 09 Jan 2015 01:22:49 +0000 http://equal.org?p=742#comment-57 For close to 50 years I have been attracted in crossdressing but most of the time denying it.
Occasionnaly, when I came across feminin gowns (my mom’s or my wife or others ) I gave-in to it, feeling good but also being so affraid of being caught.

All this time I always wondered if I was a woman in a man’s body but always doubting since I’m attracted by woman not men.

It’s only three years ago, after breaking with my last girlfriend that I decided to by my own feminin clothes and shoes. I went through several trends, going from fetich clothes to very feminin clothes. It’s the feminin clothes that felt best on me. But all this, in the closet.

I then joined support groups in an attempt to come out of the closet. What I found then was that I’m don’t really want to pass for a woman. I realized through this experience that I’m confortable with my mem identity BUT I need to dress as a women occasionnaly to feel a woman wrapping me and giving me what the man in me needs. As a fact, whenever I’ve been with a woman, I didn’t need to crossdress as often.

What I’m up to is to say that I feel a bit different of other crossdressers in that I’m a man in a man’s body and theire are no doubts anymore but I think I have a woman in me that needs to live and that my man side needs to live.

Comment on Share Your LGBT Icon by Wong https://equal.org/2010/07/01/share-your-glbt-icon/#comment-8 Wed, 19 Nov 2014 19:09:22 +0000 http://equal.orgnew_test/?p=285#comment-8 This was truly moving. Go Hillary!We’re hanvig the worst storm about lgtb-rights here in Finland. The leaders of Christian Democrats are publicly conducting a sort of witch hunt against the gay community, preaching that the Bible doesn’t approve homosexuality and we shouldn’t be bringing up children, because we are harming them mentally and physically. It’s a war going on. Couple gay men were assaulted few nights ago, when leaving a gay bar and I believe it’s only a beginning.. Something bad will happen soon, if the main leaders do not wake up to this reality. This is why Hillary’s video felt really moving to me..

It’s probably one of the most thought-worthy testimonials on how one lives the transition process and how he adapts to a familiar environment. Thanks also for the multiple references and definitions – I will need some time to digest all of those 😉

And what a difference a supportive environment makes!
