Blog to Watch: Being a Teenage Crossdresser

By November 6, 2008

If you are looking for some online reading you might want to check out the blog, "Being a Teenage Crossdresser."

Written by 18-year-old, Alice, a student in England, the blog covers everything from questions about gender, to being out as a crossdresser, to daily life as a teenager.

As Alice says in one recent post,

"Will i be happy living as a effeminate bisexual male who occasionally dressed up as a girl to go out. Do i need more as a person to live content? Do i need to physically change my body in order to live with a sense of well being? Lots of questions need answering and the only one who can do that is myself.

I do not think i could ever go back in the closet. I am openly confused. Hiding it when i was younger was very painful. Now pain comes from the pressure to decide to fit into a binary gender system. Is the pressure imagined? Possibly; i do have a warped view of most of the world (as acquaintances of mine will testify). It will be difficult. But if i do change, i want it to be sooner rather than later. I want to live my live as who i am meant to be. Sitting in the decision place is not where i want to be for the rest of my life."
