May as well wear what I like.

Wearing anything at all feels like drag sometimes, so I may as well wear what I like.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I most definitely feel you on this one. But hey it’s all about what makes us feel comfortable right? I hate that sometimes we have to feel restricted to doing or wearing certain things because of societies standards.

    I feel exactly the same way. If i’m going to be wearing drag anyway, why not dress up? I like to give people a show and be comfortable. It’s all a costume anyway.

    I’ve quoted it before, and I’ll go on quoting it. RuPaul said in his autobio all those years ago, “We’re born naked. Everything else is drag.”

    +1 to that.

    I’m behind this 110%, and really should live by this more often. Nothing feels like it’s “right” for me, so I might as just wear anything (or nothing? Hmmm…)!

    yes! yesyesyes: exactly.
    it’s costumes.
    nothing you wear can mirror yourself to the very core.
    clothes can’t turn you inside out.
    that’s really not what they’re there for.
    they’re there to stop you being naked…
    aside from that it’s all so much attention seeking. Someone once said “People dress how they want to be treated, but to varying extents.” And whatever and however much attention you want and by what means is so subjective that it’s barely even worth your consideration of what other people will think.
    it should be a fun, playfull thing.
