I have noticed in some postings that some of you here have expressed the first time you went out dressed as expressing the "real" you. What I find interesting for me, as someone who might be more appropriately placed in the crossdresser camp, is that it liberated one facet of my personality. I do not feel I am a female at all but just someone who feels the need to present myself on this way on occasion. Albeit on a fairly regular basis.
That duality is important to me and I told myself and my partner that I have no desire to change who I am but just want that other facet of my personality to express itself freely.
I hope this site continues to welcome those of us whose ultimate goal is not to transition in order to truly be themselves. I do however respect those who feel they do in order to feel whole. We are all different as individuals and have experienced different things in our lives. How we got where we are in life is unique and special and we should all respect each other.
