^ I notice in the primary school I went to (across the road from where I lived) these days girls wear shorts. Back in my day it was skirts. That was the 90s...

I don't have a dog in this fight, but I'd sure like to see just one link to a site in which one person with any kind of professional credentials says that cross dressing is indicative of any kind of psychological disorder.

Anyway, as for me, I never got the chance to cross-dress yet. However, I would probably love to do this regardless of what my gender would be (I am currently a biological male, but I have been thinking about eventually getting a sex change, et cetera). Personally, I would probably find it fun to dress up and play the role of both genders at certain points in time.
I respect that, you are making most out of your life by being adventurous and trying new things.
I wouldn't do it because women's clothing doesn't seem that comfortable.

I've even attracted men since they thought I was a woman, but I don't mess with men.

I probably have a $50,000 collection of women's clothes! So much more women's clothes than men's! But people discriminate against me in jobs when they find out I crossdress.
It is interesting how people are different. You as a man are not "expected" of wearing pantyhoses yet you WILLINGLY wear them I as a woman am "expected" to wear them with a skirt but I don't. Those are itchy, feels hideous, makes legs sweaty etc. aggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhh I hate, hate pantyhoses and would NEVER wear them

One year long time ago I was 2 weeks on my aunts place, she is very arftificial. I ran wearing shorts almost both weeks but one day I wore a skirt. She asked right away: Where are your pantyhoses? I said: My legs have been bare almost 2 weeks when wearing shorts and when I wear MORE fabric you are asking me to cover my legs?

I still not understand this obsession of skirt and pantyhoses. There is no sense as is not in most of "dressing rules".

So I prefer to go without rules

If you want to spend millions on clothes, that is your dream and choice.

What I disagree is your choice of resting and fitting rooms. As long as your ID says you are a male, please, use mens side. Or accept if you one day become removed by security. Don't stamp women rights by using womens sides as a male (not about which clothes you wear).

300 years ago the fashion for men - at least men of fashion and means - was stockings, highish heels, frilly collars/blouses, make up (rouge) and long hair done up quite elaborately. Pretty 'feminine' by today's standards.

I've seen men dressed as women who pull it off great and they really look feminine, and then others look really bad and horrifying. if you are going to do that, make sure you watch how you walk, talk, move your hands, expressing yourself, and make sure to shave your arms and chest and back hair, and legs, and also make sure you wear a fashionable dress rather than dowdy. You might need to wear 2 pairs of panty hose too, for real.
