More drag.

Someone wrote…

went to a fancy dress party a couple of days ago, and, at the suggestion of one of the guys there, went as a girl (skirt, low cut top, flowers in my hair, the lot). This I found amusing. Half of the other people there got it, the other half thought it was a bit odd. But when a bunch of guys came out in dresses, that was hilarious. They got a load of attention. It made me feel invalidated and a bit crappy. So I went and had a cry. The thing is, dressing as a girl is more drag for me than dressing as a boy is, and probably no less so than it was for the guys.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I totaly feel like you. I am a boy inside, an effeminate boy that wants to do drag. And it is drag, even if i am a femalebodied person. BUt it so disappointing people not to read this!
