Everything is Drag

Someone wrote…

When I wear a dress and makeup and styled hair, I always feel like a man in a dress. When I wear a suit and tie, with no makeup and slicked hair, I feel like a woman.

Everything is Drag.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    If I wasn’t still pretending to be a heterosexual male instead of a genderqueer as fuck transgirl, I would be quoting you on all my social media profiles. You good person are amazing.

    This has long been my feeling about realm of clothes. It’s all drag, so why not play around with it? I love the feeling of wearing clothing that isn’t my own. I’m such a Royal

    I’ve used this very phrase myself from time to time. It’s like you literally took the words right out of my mouth :)

    Exact same feelings. I have them.
    Also, the days I feel more like a man, I feel sassier, or the inverse, feeling sassy makes me feel more man-ly. The days I feel more “masculine,” I feel most like a woman, but also less confident, more defensive, and less like myself. None of these things are really contradictory, masculinity and woman-ness, man-ness, sassiness… None of these words really fit me, or rather, I don’t fit in to any of those words. Exept sassy. Can my gender identity be Sassy?

    I’m everything. I can be different shades of masculinity, of femininity, and the mixes of gender and those. cheers to all of you.

    Is it all just dress up? We’re not just clothes horses and my life isn’t just about performance. Yeah, there are fun details, but what counts is what you are and what you do with who you are with other people.

    This is almost exactly what I feel. I’m always in a costume no matter how I dress or act.

    I feel extremely feminine in a binder and a buttondown. Go figure :)
