If you dress like a sissy does it mean you’re gay?
When it comes to crossdressing, there is no question more controversial or that causes more confusion than whether crossdressing means you’re gay. I get asked this question every day on IM, in chat rooms, and from callers. Many callers are seriously upset and confused by what dressing like a sissy means in terms of their sexuality. To complicate the issue, most sissy callers enjoy and get off on the humiliation of being called a sissy faggot (even when they’re not). Today I thought I’d address some of the issues that you might be experiencing.
How much feminization is too much?
Sometimes callers will ask me to look at their online photos so that I can determine if they’re gay or not. Just yesterday a caller showed me his photos. His eyebrows are professional waxed and arched and he has a manicure with coral polish and pedicure with lavender polish. He has tan lines from where he wears a woman’s bikini at the tanning salon. His bellybutton is pierced with a long tail of rhinestones, and he asked “What man has his bellybutton pierced?” Good question! What he really wanted to know is whether he was so feminized that he had to be gay. This particular caller is happily married and is lucky because his wife is not threatened by his crossdressing and enjoys feminizing him.
Why enjoying name calling does not mean you’re gay
A lot of sissies get off on being called a sissy faggot, sissy slut, or cum slut, and start to get excited when they’re referred to as “her”. Almost all of my sissy callers love having me refer to their manhood as their ‘little clitty’. As many of you know, the thrill of being called a sissy faggot, does not mean that you’re gay. Name calling is a form of sissy humiliation, and can be extremely intoxicating and erotic. If you enjoy being called a cum slut sissy faggot while you’re dressed as a sissy it does not necessarily mean that you’re gay.
Does using a woman’s name turn you on?
Another source of worry is that if you enjoy going by a female name when you’re dressed like a woman, it means you’re gay. Do you like being called ‘Rachel’ when your real name is Ray? Does being called ‘Jasmine’ when your real name is James while you’re dressed up in your best sissy attire make you incredibly hard? Does being turned on when you’re called by your feminine name mean that you’re really in the closet? For some callers who are moving toward a transgender lifestyle, a feminine name is a must and accompanies their transition. But if you’re someone who just likes to wear panties and gets excited by sissy behavior on a part-time basis, being called a female name doesn’t mean you’re gay.
Why crossdressing leads to rejection and rejection leads to sexual confusion
Sadly I can’t tell you the number of callers I have who have revealed their hidden desire to dress like a woman to their wife/girlfriend only to be met with a very negative reaction. From screaming insults to silent disapproval, the bottom line is that most women’s initial reaction to their partner’s crossdressing feels like painful rejection. Many women assume that this means that their partner is gay and can’t get past the traditional idea that the man should wear the pants. Because their partner feels so strongly about this, often sissies feel more confused about their sexuality. They don’t feel gay, but their partner insists that they must be if they’re dressing like a woman.
Crossdressing is a fetish not a sexual orientation
Some crossdressers (or sissies, depending on what you prefer to be called) are gay, meaning they want to have sex with men. But many crossdressers just enjoy the pleasures of dressing like a woman and want nothing more than to have sex with their wife or girlfriend. I haven’t found an exact percentage, but according to most of the research that I’ve read, the majority of crossdressers aren’t gay! I have callers tell me that if their wife would just accept them and allow them to crossdress, they would never want to be with anybody else! Instead many sissies hide their clothes and keep their sexual preferences a deep dark secret. A part of their sexuality that brings joy and pleasure becomes tainted with shame.
More on feminization and educating your partner coming soon!
If you like to dress but are feeling rejected by your partner and confused by whether this means you’re gay, just know that a fetish, no matter how feminine it might seem, does not equate sexual orientation. My upcoming posts will deal with the woman’s perspective on crossdressing, how to educate your partner and make her understand that you still desire to be with her, and ways to help her enjoy your crossdressing as much as you do! I will also delve into some more aspects of feminization that may be worrying you, so stay tuned!
