Why Femulate ?

crossdress
Stana, 1976
Growing up, I was the neighborhood effeminate boy. I did not choose to be feminine; my feminine persona was natural, not an affection. Whenever I acted on the advice to "man up," it felt so unnatural and uncomfortable that I invariably returned to my natural feminine ways, which were not a good fit for a young American male circa 1960. As a result, I was a favorite object of bullies and suffered through a lot of abuse in my youth. And having the breasts of a young woman did not help. My B-cups just added fuel to the fire being stoked by my peers. In the early "60s, I became fascinated by the glamorous women who were no ladies, but rather female impersonators, as depicted in the 82 Club ads appearing in New York City newspapers. Eventually that fascination motivated me to began experimenting with female impersonation myself using my mother"s and sister"s wardrobes whenever I was home alone. After honing my skills in private for almost half a decade, I had to let the girl out of the confines of the closet. So on Halloween 1969 I borrowed my sister"s purple mini-dress, black mid-heel pumps, black tights, wiglet and knit beige cap. I wore minimal makeup. Although I had been wearing my mother"s and sister"s foundation garments in secret for years, I skipped the bra and girdle because I did not think they would appreciate me wearing such personal items. I drove around town visiting a few friends and relatives, who were amused by my costume. I don"t know if I passed, but I did not care. I was having the time of my life! All I cared about was that I was out in public living a few hours as the young woman I had discovered and nourished for the past few years.

Naturally Effeminate or Naturally a Woman

Recently, I proffered, "Ask me anything" and Pat asked, "Were you naturally effeminate as a kid and ever called a sissy while going to school?" Yes ? I was naturally effeminate as a kid. I know it was "natural" because at the time, I was not aware that I was effeminate. I was not intentionally acting effeminate, I was acting as me, myself, and I, and as luck would have it, me, myself and I was very effeminate. So much so that my peers let me know it by calling me names like "sissy," "twinky," "fairy," and worse. At my first summer job, which was in a very macho environment, my nickname was "Zelda" in honor of my feminine ways. crossdress At another summer job working in the receiving department of a department store where I unpacked and sorted women"s clothing all day long, one of my co-workers suggested that it must be my dream job because I got first shot at all the new dresses and lingerie before it went on the floor for sale to the public. He even showed me a private backroom where I could try on the clothing that I might like to purchase. At my high school graduation, some of the jocks asked aloud why I wasn"t wearing a gold-colored graduation cap and gown like the other girls. In college, the guy in the dorm room next door said I could borrow his girlfriend"s bra that she left behind after one of their evening rendezvous. crossdress  Italian actress, writer, politician and television host, Vladimir Luxuria I never changed my feminine ways even when I figured out what was going on. I knew how to fix the problem, but I rejected manning up and becoming macho because doing so was so incompatible with my nature. On the other hand, dressing in woman"s clothing was a perfect fit. I already acted, moved, and spoke like a woman, so the clothing just completed the picture.

High Heels are Good for You!

crossdressEver since I began sashaying in shoes of stupendous height, all I ever heard was how bad they were. A parade of experts claimed that high heels caused one bad thing after another. They were the cause of all that was wrong with our feet, as well as being responsible for some of society’s ills as well. 
Well, I have some good news for high heel fashionistas. Contrary to popular opinion, wearing high heels is good for your physique and your psyche, according to studies recently uncovered 

In one study, a British doctor performed tests using special scales and the results indicate “that high heels throw the weight onto the heel rather than onto the toes… which eliminates slouching, produces more healthy breathing, and adds inches to the bust.”

"But the greatest effect is the psychological one," the doctor added, "...long legs are admired and the high heel gives the impression of greater leg length... a sensation of slimness."

In another study, British scientists gave high heels a clean bill of health. “Instead of being unhealthful, high heels are actually easier on the body than low ones. In spite of the present vogue of high heels, there is no evidence that corns, flat feet, or other disorders are increasing.”

Femulate Her or Her?

crossdressing The Femulate Her spot in this blog features nicely clad women, typically, models wearing the latest styles. The women I choose for the Femulate Her spot are women I want to femulate and I imagine, you readers would like to femulate some of these women, too. There is one problem with my selections; there is a big disconnect regarding age... about 40 years! Most of the models are probably in their 20s and are modeling clothing appropriate for young women. I am in my 60s and my guess is that many of this blog’ readers are right up their with me age-wise. As a result, we can dream about femulating the young models that I choose for the Femulate Her spot, but the reality is that such femulations are beyond our reach. After publishing Friday’s post, My Future, I mulled over what I wrote and realized that my so-called future may be now! Instead of femulating a young model from Bebe or somesuch, I should femulate women who are more mature.

I Love My Lipstick

For me, my lipstick is a fashion necessity. However, it also has some additional benefit:
  •     It supports lip hydration
  •     It can be a good sunscreen
  •     Can improve your mental health
Many lipsticks have moisturizing additives to help keep your lips soft and hydrated. Adding a lipstick with a good sunscreen can protect your lips from the harsh sunlight. Finally, studies support the "Lipstick Effect," which indicates that when the economy is bad, women spend more money on items like lipstick. To increase the effectiveness of lipstick, do you exfoliate your lips and do you know which colors work best for your skin tone? Below is a video on a DYI lip exfoliate, followed by a chart showing which lipstick shade works on the which skin tone.

Femulating For Life

Relay For Life is a community based fundraising event of the American Cancer Society. Each year, more than 5,000 Relay For Life events take place in over twenty countries. Events are held in local communities, campus universities and in virtual worlds. As the American Cancer Society"s most successful fundraiser and the organization"s signature event, the mission of Relay For Life is to raise funds to improve cancer survival, decrease the incidence of cancer, and improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their caretakers. (Source: Wikipedia) Some Relay For Life events include womanless beauty pageant competitions . Having lost my parents to cancer, I have participated in local Relay For Life events. None of my local events have included womanless beauty contests, so I have not had the opportunity to strut my stuff and take home the gold. Instead, I have had to admire and envy the womanless events that have taken place at other Relay For Life events. The better femulations at these events have been documented in this blog in the past. Recently, I encountered a photo on the Internet that was reputed to be taken at a Relay For Life womanless contest. The femulations looked better than average, so I wanted to find out more. After a little digging (with a Google shovel), I found the source of the photo: the Polk County, Arkansas, Relay For Life "Miss-Ter Relay Pageant" in April 2014. The pageant is documented on Facebook with a slew of photos of the beauties who participated. Here is the Facebook link for you to admire (and envy), too!

Curious X 3

crossdresser
1 David Walliams authored a popular kids" book titled The Boy in the Dress. And World Book Day is an annual event intended to encourage reading. Schools around the world celebrate the day and some of these celebrations include encouraging students to attend school on that day costumed as their favorite book character. And some boys show up dressed as the crossdressing Dennis from Walliams" book. (I"d prefer to go as Trudy from Coffee, Tea or Me?, but that"s me.) Anyway, I was curious how popular was dressing as Dennis for World Book Day, so I searched the Internet and found over 60 photos of schoolboys dressed as Dennis en femme. I was also surprised to find a few photos of male teachers also dressed as Dennis en femme. 2 My curiosity about how I got this way has never waned, although I am less concerned about it in my old age because I don"t think I will ever know for sure. But I still find information on the topic interesting and so I found another reference to the finger-length indicator that I"ve discussed here in the past. So it goes that if your ring and index fingers are approximately equal in length, you are female and if your ring finger is longer than your index finger, you are male. I was born with male plumbing, but my ring and index fingers are equal in length indicating that I am female. No surprise there! Anyway, Christen"s blog, The Woman Within, has a fascinating article on the topic, as well as other posts of interest. So go there! 3 And this was kind of curious... this blog gets at least 5,000 hits ("pageviews") per day. Sometimes more, but always at least 5,000 hits each day. On Monday, the blog had 10,548 hits! Why? I don"t know. There wasn"t even a new post on Monday, so go figure!

Retirement Age

crossdressing
"Telling us we should or shouldn"t wear certain items is an easy way to make us take pause. Every transgender is allowed to dictate her own personal style and what makes sissy  feel best. That being said, we"ve all come to a time when we"ve stopped and asked ourselves, Do I really still want to wear this? Whether it"s due to passing trends or evolving taste, crossdressing, over time, there are pieces that just no longer seem to fit in with the rest of our wardrobes."
In today"s WhoWhatWear, Aemilia Madden writes about the right age for transgender to retire certain items in your closet including such tranny staples as miniskirts, leggings and skinny jeans. I invite you to follow this link to begin thinning out your closet. "crossdresser".
As more and more transgender individuals get older, the unique challenges they face are becoming apparent.
