No, not really.
I am a male and I'll admit the only article of women's clothing i'd wanna try on is a pair of 6-inch stilletos lmao!

Just to see if I could walk in them..or see what my legs looked like, otherwise I have no interest in cross-dressing lol

Never.

As gay men, we're supposed to look masculine to attract other (gay) men.

Funny, since we're always affiliated with crossdressers/drag queens....

well, let's be honest here... is not gay men who do the whole drag thing? I dont imagine many straight men do it. I've seen RuPauls' Drag Race... I know gay men love it.

I personally find them entertaining but have never known a straight man to do drag....always gay.

Not every man that does drag is gay. Those tv shows are just reinforcing stereotypes that arent true. Would be like saying that every woman with short hair is a lesbian or that every man in a suit is a lawyer.

no, although this question reminds me of mr. golden balls, david beckham who wears his wife's panties haha. to each his own. i hate doing anything to my body that is feminine and really hate experiencing the opposite in a girl. i like experiencing ultra femininity while i try to be ultra masculine. when those worlds collide, it is absolute paradise.

It's a very VERY small minority that is straight. So the stereotype generally holds true. Which is exactly what stereotype means.

Perhaps all of the crossdressers you KNOW OF are gay, but of every single one in the world only a very small percentage are in fact gay. In fact, if you do a search on google for "all crossdressers are gay" the one word that shows up in practically all result is "myth".

Misconceptions that abound:
1) Crossdressers Are Gay
More than likely not. As Dr. William Stayton, Head of the University of Pennsylvania'
s Department of Human Sexuality and himself a therapist for crossdressers,
reported "People associate crossdressing with effeminacy and being gay and the
fact is most of them are not gay. They are very definitely heterosexual. "In fact one
of the most difficult areas for crossdressers was how to deal with the women with
whom they wanted to be involved.
