Crossdressing= Genderqueer?


What is about crossdressing that draws some people to it? Is it a turn-on? A way to relieve gender dysphoria? Rebellion against the binary? Or something else. In this week's episode, we answer a listener's question about crossdressing and motivations. Our listener asks "What drives this feeling for me? I kind of have a hard time answering this. There have been a lot of times in my life where it has been a fetish of sorts for me and I wonder if that is attributable to the fact that it was my secret. I say this because now that I'm able to paint my toes, put on makeup once in a while, and wear some female undergarments to work, that fetish aspect has gone away. It's more just something that makes me feel good about myself. I guess I'm wondering if other crossdressers experienced their fetish transform into something more subdued when they begin to be open with people close to them. I view this as a healthy development for me."
