I'd say it is too bad you have encountered anyone that would influence you to make a post such as this. They are idiots, live your life and sounds like you could give them the ass kicking they need.

The op is probably asking because of this bible verse:

"The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God."

To me you are not!! Because I grew up with my sister who is very tomboyish. But if you are straight, you must have a balance with your feminine personality. You will not find a suitable husband dressing in men's clothing. You like men, act and dress like woman. You can't play both roles. A man should be a man and woman should be a woman. Regardless of what you look like or how much you bench press. The rules of attraction are still the same. A man who loves women is not going to want a woman that dresses as he does. A woman who loves men is not going to want a man that dresses like her. Otherwise they would have dated the same sex and save the trouble. So I'm not saying I have a problem with you dressing the way you do because it's none of my business. It's just that as a "straight" woman, your not going to find many men that want to court you when you dress like them.
THIS is part of what I'm talking about. I have the muscle mass and skeletal structure of a male.I have a genetic disorder where I have an extra chromosome, it's hereditary, my mom has it do and dresses the same has me. She has been married for 35 years and has never worn a dress, anything feminine or makeup. Also, who defines these roles? In Native American cultures, those who cross dress are considered to have "two spirits". In Vodoun, the Loa (saints) can be both.

Oh I'm sorry I didn't know! That must be hard for you! I can't even imagine what you go through! But is that really an excuse not to look as what you were born? I know plenty of those female wrestlers that have muscle mass and although they look a little on the manly side, they are always feminine in their mannerism, speech, & dress. They still stay true to who they are. Yes you may be built like a man but do you really have to dress as one? You can't put on make-up, jewelry, jeans, heels, or any other kind of feminine attire? This is what distinguishes you from men! You want men, you have to put in the work to get one. Dress however you want at home, but when outside, you should dress as you want people to perceive you.

What happened to "Be yourself"? Heels are torture, would you want to walk around in terrible pain , just to be "feminine"? I have been raised mainly around men, I've acted like one since I can remember. No female member of my family wears "make-up, jewelry, jeans, heels, or any other kind of feminine attire", and all have husbands and well paying jobs.

If you are happy with yourself and don't want to change why did you bother posting this thread? I'm glad you don't try to be someone you're not, but I don't understand why you care what other people think about you.

Hi there JesseJames. Quick question? Do you believe that God alone is Judge and that position's already taken? If so, why worry?
