Still, my answer has never changed though I was never again asked ; I would much rather be a girl than a boy. We still bring it up once in a while. And the same goes for women: we tend to naturally enjoy moving with the flow of life, but we also like being clear, directive, and progressive. I pray that men are allowed to be men. We came to a spot where the trail got steep, but luckily there were stairs and a railing.

Today, like you, things are changing. I stopped wearing makeup a long time ago, it's a little more difficult to hide whenever you have a wife to contend with. I don't know how long a post Im allowed here, so Im sending this in pieces. I no longer feel the need to be seen and treated as female. All we have is pants and shorts mostly made of uncomfortable fabrics. The years went by and in my early teens I watched as my friends became more masculine and spent their time playing boy sports whereas I became more isolated and spent a lot of my time alone riding my bike.
Denying men the right to wear a skirt because it represents oppression to you is the same as denying a muslim woman the right to wear a hijab because it offends your liberal sensitivities. I wear a man's shirt, men's underwear and for the most part, men's shoes. Like walking, only not now in skyscraper stileto heels. It is like having scales of 0% male and 100% female or 100% male and 0% female with all the combinations inbetween with %maleness+%femaleness equalling 100. I needed to discover this inner me and so I went online and spent many hours identifying as female in chatrooms, not for sexual gratification but rather simply to express my inner female persona.
I can be as strong as any man and indeed, need that quality. Look at the wigs, the heels, the makeup, the padding, the breastforms. I appreciate all that you do here Hope. With this in mind, it is why I no longer deny and defy my feminine self. I think many men will agree that submissive always gets what it wants.
By the time its done- she will have an all-nighter with no accountability, and he will be apologizing as though he betrayed her respect. As a man, you can be an individual in a pair of 3 inch heels and a halterneck top, as much as you can be an individual in a conservative 3 piece business shirt and slacks. I mean for long periods of time. I realised how untrue I was to myself during the whole time of the relationship. In the 80's, make-up, hoop earrings for guys my husband had them , long haired perms and other trends were considered completely normal for men. You deserve your date to be on time and treat you well. That's not to say that I'm always submissive as a female either, but generally, that's the way it is for me.
It's legal here for women to be topless in public. Good fortune and happiness be with you on your journey! Instead I wrote this hub, sincerely and humorously, hoping it finds men who need a wake-up call. Let's start off, simply, at birth. Sometimes being a man can feel like being in a pressure cooker. Berenice~ I understand where you are coming from and I do have a biased opnion on this because my dad was a cross-dresser and ultimately a transsexual. He doesn't care - he made me so I can enjoy me.
I look back over the years, so much time wasted, I could have had kids, had meaningful adventurous and experiences. She kept apologizing to me for how awkward this must be for me, but the truth is and I didn't tell her this , I enjoyed my time there. I'm also deeply resentful of my body for all of its female shortcomings vulnerability, shortness, fragility, weakness , though I don't want a penis. This led to some boys asking if I was a boy or a girl which I admit was a fair question as to those who didn't know me, I facially could pass as either. Up and up we went and I thought if I looked directly above me I could probably see up this man's skirt. There is a reason for women having a purse.
But publicly, I still identify as a male. Afterwards we were walking to our cars when suddenly the guys stopped dead in their tracks. How many guys have you seen in a skirt? I have however encountered gay woman who adopted masculine roles. That's maybe confusing to read but yes, I've been a proper man to the women in my life and that his worked well alongside my female persona. It may be nuts, it may be common, whatever happened with me in my gender development,, somehow my feelings and passions got classed as femme- and walled off. I've had girlfriends that had no problem grabing a sweat shirt of mine, ect.
That's the way they've grown in utero. I am married, I have a 3 year old son, and I can see no way out at the moment. What am I supposed to say to that? It may be nuts, it may be common, whatever happened with me in my gender development,, somehow my feelings and passions got classed as femme- and walled off. I find it very stimulating to go to the next level. While I don't do, or need to do - anything in acting out.
