So I'm a straight man who likes wearing women's underwear and today I went into Victoria's Secret to buy a swim bottom to go tanning in and the one girl laughed at me. Can't I wear what I want especially in a tanning booth? Don't I have a right to choose what I want without being judged? I'm not hurting anyone.

It's not common, and our society is still with the belief that men want nothing to do with wearing women's clothes whereas women have transitioned over the last century to be accepted in both men's and ladies' traditional clothes (i. e. wearing trousers and dress shirts).
Men have a lot of work to do to make people believe that this is going to be accepted by making it clear they don't think it's fair to be judged. That will shut a clerk up real quick.
We women had the same trouble for decades when we wanted to wear pants. It literally took a few generations to make it acceptable without judgement. We were in the same position as you, just as you felt. We wanted to wear something and were laughed at or shunned. So though today's generation of women don't understand that since we personally never had to go through it, our ladies in the past took the brunt of it for us.
You guys will have to do the same thing we did in order to feel that acceptance. It's already started with men wearing makeup or having long hair to style. I wonder though if the desire is strong enough in most men to want to do it. I know many would want to just shop without being judged, but it would have to take a lot of men who are willing to stand up and make it a point to challenge society, and it will take time, just as it did for women.0
