Picked out this dress on a whim, and since it was basically free I couldn’t really lose. I had a lot of fun putting this look together, and I feel super cute. What do you think, Tumblr?
A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”
I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”
I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”
…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.

hey uh, some cis guy crossdressing doesnt break gender norms or anything at all why is anyone at all praising him for this
also a cis guy crossdressing DOES break gender norms, actually, i mean unless they were doing it as a joke then it wouldn’t be, but anyone crossdressing to genuinely express or explore their gender expression breaks gender norms because it’s not normative to do that
sure cis men shouldn’t be heaped with praise for crossdressing when trans people are not - but it’s not normative
but anyway this person is genderfluid so…your point doesn’t follow - although you shouldn’t have made that assumption anyway
i felt like the “shaking” part made it REALLY obvious this person wasn’t a cis dude - it’s personal for him
