All crossdressers know they exist.. myths about being a crossdresser that other people choose to believe. People either don’t understand or don’t care enough to get them right, BUT I do! and will! Here are some of the worst Myths I could think of:
1. We’re all gay.
2. We’re all perverts.
3. We all have mental health issues.
4. We want to physically change the gender we were born with…
5. We wouldn’t make good fathers or husbands.
As crossdressers, we all know these horrible myths to be FALSE. However, some people actually believe these five misconceptions. I am here to finally say what all crossdressers are thinking; YOU’RE WRONG. If you are a straight male or female reading this article right now and believe any of these five myths to be true, then keep reading. I will help you understand further by going over what crossdressers are, with a definition.
Crossdresser: Typically heterosexual males who occasionally dress or accessorize with feminine products, methods, and clothing. These males do not identify as females and live the majority of their lives, weeks, and months as males. However, they prefer to occasionally dress as a woman for a night, event, day, etc. This is a form of gender expression. Crossdressers typically do not want to change their sex to female.
Opposed to crossdressers are transgender folk who do want to change their physical sex to female- crossdressers do not. So, NO, crossdressers do not want to undergo any sexual change.
Not only are most crossdressers not gay but many of them are happily married with loving, supportive wives and children! It is not uncommon to find crossdressers with a family. Sure, being a crossdresser could put some people in tougher family situations but, it does not take away from their value as a parent. A good parent/husband is exactly that no matter what clothing they’re wearing. So, NO, most crossdressers are not gay or bi and NO they do not make bad husbands or fathers.
Some people can go on thinking that all crossdressers are perverts or that they have mental health issues but, it is just NOT true. I can guarantee a lot of people have met or encountered a crossdresser before in their lifetime. However, you would never know and I am sure you did not think they were a pervert or had mental health issues. They probably seemed just as normal as you- because we are. So, NO, being a crossdresser does not mean any of us to have mental health issues or are perverts; certainly no more as a percentage than the general population.
