Cross dressing Myths..Is It Mental Illness..
Cross-dressing is not a mental illness. It is not a sickness, perversion, disease, affliction, condition, the work of the devil, or any of that other garbage many people seem to associate it with. It is simply who we are, and the only real problem with that is in how we’re treated by much of society.
I think that a lot of crossdressers do end up dealing with mental illness though, for many of the same reasons I did. Trying to suppress who I am was truly maddening and a terrible waste of so many years of my life. Never again though. This is who I am and love being a girl (if only part-time).
It would be so refreshing if society would stop treating us so poorly and be more accepting of differences in people. There would be no need for such confusion among otherwise very normal, well rounded and completely sane people.
