From another recent email I received:
Are you ever afraid that, or do you ever have the feeling that just “dressing” isn’t or won’t be enough for you?
That’s actually something I’m not worried about at all. For me, dressing is basically where it ends. I’ve never had any long-term desire to be a woman – indeed, the rare, short-term thoughts on it I’ve had have evaporated faster than what to watch next on Netflix. Further steps, like transitioning, hormones, voice-coaching, etc are just not something that drives me, or appeal to me. Quite the contrary – although I will always have this feminine side as a large part of my personality, for whatever reason, the dire need to dress has been diminishing lately (which is its own curiosity – I suspect it’ll bubble back up again soon)
Thanks for the question!
