General CD/TV/TS discussion

I think we need a sub-forum for crossdressing (including drag acts, etc). Very difficult to differentiate and separate (because two thirds of the site is dedicated to traditionally women's clothing Big Grin ), but the TS/TV/CD content gets mixed up with the rest, yet it's quite an interesting subject on its own. Any ideas are welcome.

If we do so can we have a separate thread for terminology? Not re the biological/psychological aspects (I think we all understand those)   but whether the terms 'crossdressing', 'transvestism', 'crossdresser', 'trannie; etc are offensive? I consider myself a fetishistic transvestite, a trannie, if anyone wants to call me that's it fine.  Call me a f***ing  trannie and I'll likely take offence.

If we have such a topic I intend to ignore it, but it would just be good to have all such nonsense in one place.

Absolutely. I was going to create a separate FAQ category for that, since there is a lot of different definitions and meanings.

Adding that f-word is never acceptable anyway.

What topic do you mean?

That's the idea.

OK, one step is completed. What do you think, can it stay as a simple sub-forum, or is it better to create a new category (like Fetish, Bondage, Self-Bondage, etc) and then create sub-forums (General, Art, something else?).

Just moved all the obvious CD/TV related threads from various forums into this one. Let me know if I missed anything.

Now let's agree on the terms (something for the FAQ). I prefer the Wiki ones:

Cross-dressing (CD) is the act of wearing items of clothing and other accoutrements commonly associated with the opposite sex within a particular society.

Transvestism (TV) is the practice of dressing and acting in a style or manner traditionally associated with the opposite sex.

Transsexual (TS) people experience a gender identity that is inconsistent with, or not culturally associated with, their assigned sex, and desire to permanently transition to the gender with which they identify, usually seeking medical assistance (including hormone replacement therapy and other sex reassignment therapies) to help them align their body with their identified sex or gender.

Transgender (TG) people have a gender identity or gender expression that differs from their assigned sex.

Drag refers to the wearing of clothing of the opposite sex.

A drag queen is a person, usually male, who dresses in clothing of the opposite sex and often acts with exaggerated femininity and in feminine gender roles for the purpose of entertainment or fashion.

Drag kings are mostly female performance artists who dress in masculine drag and personify male gender stereotypes as part of an individual or group routine.

In other (mathematical) words:

CD = clothes

Example: a man wearing a dress, but he looks and feels like a man (see http://hisblackdress.com/ )

CD is a subset of TV. TV = CD + (looking + acting)

Example: a man "impersonating" a woman (he dresses, looks and behaves like a woman).

Drag = exaggerated(TV) + show

TS is a subset of TG. TS = TV + self-identification + (hormone + surgery)

The difference between TV and TG is the self identity. TG feels that he/she belongs to another (politically correct term) sex.

Ok, then can I ask, where do I fit in this?
I wear nylons, skirts, tops, outfits that looks good on me.
Yes, I do wear a bra, a 40B, yes, I have real boobs.
But I don't pretend to be female. I am a guy. But I have female urges.
So, where do I fit in this.
I dress whenever I feel like it or not. Not when I'm horny, that would be a bit embarrassing.
