To Cross or Not to Cross?
The beauty Hunter
Although this blog is not about cross-dressing, I'm aware that many CD friends visit it daily, and, one hopes, enjoy it's contents. That being said, I also bear in mind that what I'm about to state may not be to everyone's liking. In fact, I hope I won't drive my drag-queen fans away, and that they'll keep visiting my blog and enjoying the pics in spite of the following remarks.
If there's a word I despise, it is precisely "cross-dressing". I implies that there should be some sort of line, of barrier we are supposed to "cross" as we dress with garments of the "opposite sex". And, for what I see, no such boundaries exist, or should exist. Clothing has no "sex" per se, and the reality is that we all Human beings, without exception, show both masculine as well as feminine traits.
Shouldn't we all acknowledge and even treasure such ambivalence, since it is in fact our real nature?
If a man feels particularly feminine at any given time, be it for a single day, a period of his existence, or even his whole lifespan, shouldn't his clothing reflect it?
I've seen a girl wearing a dirty denim overall and battered Doc Martens as she fixes her car, only to encounter her shortly afterwards at a cocktail party clad in a sexy sequin dress and silver stilettos.
Shouldn't we males also accept ourselves the way we really are and let that less aggressive, more submissive "other self" to surface once in a while? Or most of the time, if that be the case?
For instance, we could and should display our virile, outgoing, competitive self as we dress in a commanding, corporate double-breasted chalk-striped suit, and, later on, loosen up and show up at a party in a fancy dress, high-heels, and wearing make up.
We also could and should also choose to be dressed permanently an in-between mixture of both.
And we wouldn't be "cross-dressing"! We wouldn't be making efforts to "look like a girl" or "pass" as one. We wouldn't be crossing some imaginary line in order to invade the mysterious realm of womanhood, nor braking unwritten laws of prejudice...
We would simply present ourselves to the world the way we really are, or at least the way we feel at a certain point of our lives.
The very term "cross-dressing" wouldn't make any sense in such a world. And, on keeping this blog, I can tell you I feel confident that's the world we are heading in to. Who knows, maybe the expression will disappear altogether from the dictionaries in the future, or be labelled as a archaicism.
In the mean time, if you happen to be one of my many cross-dressing friends, please don't feel upset by my outburst, and please keep following me. And, by all means, continue to cross-dress, if that happens to be your choice. At least until the day arrives in which everyone dresses the way they fancy and the term ceases to make sense.
