I know that for many cross dressers, Halloween is their favorite day of the year. It is the day when they can get out and about dressed however they want and no one is going to say anything besides "Great Costume!"
Well, sorry, that is not for me. Maybe it is because I am not in the closet. Maybe it is because I do it too well. Maybe it is because awhile back I decided that it is disrespectful to myself.
Why you ask? Well, I kind of have the thought that I am not a costume. See, when I dress as a girl, it is just another side to who I am. It is a part of me. It is me. Not entirely me, just sort of an aspect of me. I see myself as existing somewhere in the middle of the gender spectrum. Somewhere between male and female. Or somewhere with both male and female aspects. Hmm.... ???? Am I even making any sense at all? I dunno!
All I know is that if I were to dress as a girl for Halloween it would be to fully come out to everyone I know, work included. See, the picture above, is me at work. It is really the only place that I dress up for Halloween. Thus, if I were to go as a girl, and do it like I do it, as me, not as a joke version of me, I think everyone would know that I do it more than just for Halloween.
And, I just don't think that I am interested in being fully out at work. "Fully out at work?" You ask? Yeah, I am out at work with all of my various gender non-conforming behaviors, but just not with my cross dressing behavior.
Okay, well whatever! I hope that everyone has a great day, regardless of if you choose to dress as a girl, or a werewolf, or a robot, or a box of Cheerios, or whatever!
