I was having one of those imaginary conversations in my head, unbidden by anything in the real world. (Can you relate?) This imaginary conversation was with a cis-het male who was giving me a “hard time” about me dressing as woman. The imaginary dialogue goes something like this:
Cis: “What you’re doing goes against human decency!”
Me: “I know, right? I tell myself that sometimes.”
Cis: “You shouldn’t be doing it, no one in their right mind would run around in public like that!”
Me: “I can see why you might think that. But for just a minute, imagine what it would be like if no one thought it was wrong? Imagine if no one had to tolerate, or even ‘accept’, this behavior. What if it wasn’t considered an aberration, an oddity? Then imagine if NO ONE WAS AFRAID to express themselves this way, even for just a couple hours. Can you imagine how many people you would see crossdressing, if not living as their inner gender despite their birth appearance?”
Cis: “That’s crazy! Nobody WANTS to do that!”
Me: “You’d probably be surprised.”
