Fun either way

Someone wrote…

I feel like I’m in drag when I wear a dress, makeup and heels just as much as I do when I wear a suit and tie. I have fun either way, though!

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I feel the same way :D
    I identify as female, but I like to dress in casual (but colourful) trousers and shirts. My body is kind of half way between male and female so I feel like I’m in drag when I dress über-femininely/masculinely. I still enjoy it though ^^

    I (raised & living female) totally feel the same. When I wear “male” clothes I get exited as it’s soo drag, when I wear makeup, explicitly “female” shoes etc even more so. Rather fascinating…

    I always have to remember that the true definition of “drag” is the exaggerated expression of gender stereotypes. Because my personal gender expression is androgynous, anything other than jeans, t-shirts and converses feels like drag to me. (I’m female bodied).

    So glad you have a blast with playing with gender stereotypes!

    I’m very excited to see that I’m not the only person who feels this way.

    I would never pass as a male yet I view my feminity as a choice.
