Laurie's Musical Tribute, Spontaneous Survey and Exhaustive Guide to GAG's Transgender and/or Cross Dressing Community, and those who love them!

laurieluvsit

First, I know there are hundreds of you on GAG, that visit from time to time to share with us, secretly or openly, many of your secrets because I have seen you come and go.

Since I am in the San Francisco Bay Area I have occasion to see many open cross dressers, especially in the city, and I know some guys that do it secretly just for the thrill, but mostly just lingerie type stuff. This myTake primarily about cross dressing and not any transgender social/political activism aspects of this issue and/or a play on politically correct terminology.

OH LOOK! ...its all our GAG Cross Dressing sisters and our straight friends! ...Welcome to the Party!!

(WARNING: This is a "NO JUDGEMENT ZONE". If you are a hater of this gender identity, lifestyle and/or entertainment style, please leave this post immediately and find a different post for that, ...this is not one)

There are many theaters in San Francisco that feature drag queen entertainment such as The Stud, Aunt Charlie's Lounge, Trannyshack, Fauxgirls at the Infusion Lounge ...just to name a few, as there are way over 30 of them. The ones that I have been to, with my Sisters and our friends, is ZSpace and The Exit Theater.

Please participate in this survey if you are a member of this Transgender/Cross Dresser community, or dabble in it, even in the smallest way.

TRANSGENDER/CROSS DRESSING SURVEY

HERE ARE MY SURVEY QUESTIONS (cut and paste the ones that apply to your comments)...

1) Are you a panty-only cross-dresser, or do you wear more than that, like bra and nylons, etc?

2) Do you feel you have to sneak doing this behind your wife, girlfriends, or parents back because she/they are unaccepting of it ...or is she/they OK with it and you don't have to hide it?

3) Do you feel like you are a girl living in a boys body or do you feel like a guy that gets turned on by wearing girls lingerie or more?

4) At what age where you when you first discovered your gender identity realization and/or your cross dressing desires?

5) Did you see something in porn, or in real life, that first made you curious about trying cross dressing? ...what was it?

6) Are you "passable" (meaning you look like a girl when you are dressed like one and all made up), or not so much?

7) Do you use just female clothing only or do you also wear a wig and breast forms?

8 ) Is the dressing up part as far as you go, or are you also doing breast hormone treatments, or more?

9) Do you cross dress everyday or only on occasion?

10) Are you also into the ABDL lifestyle (Adult Baby Diaper Lover)? ...girls can answer this one also if you are into this

11) If so, is it the DL part only you are into or both?

12) OTHER - Add, and answer, something that I may have missed

Do Anonymous if you need to or PM me if you prefer, or both. I am really curious to learn more about the thinking and feelings behind why guys like cross dressing and/or want to experience, or let out, the female identity for themselves.

MUSIC VIDEOS

Now a quick word about the videos. Most people don't have time to watch video's. I have spent many hours going throw dozens of videos to pick out the best ones that I thought you would enjoy with this myTake on this subject.

There are some of you that will ask why I didn't include one of your favorites? ...well, it didn't meet my high standards of excellence for the video, or audio, content is why, but feel free to post it in your reply if you like.

That being said, maybe you are still too busy or anxious to listen to them all, so here is what you do ...my two favorites are the first one, The Kinks - Lola, and the last one, Aerosmith - Dude. I like to enter with a bang and leave with one! (OK, keep your mind clean now! ...lol), so please listen and watch at least those two, if you can, if not, I understand :)

OMG! ...I JUST LOVE THIS MYTAKE GIRL!!
OMG! ...I JUST LOVE THIS MYTAKE GIRL!!

THE KINKS - LOLA

The 1970 song “Lola” has been debated as transphobic, but others see it as a love story between a cis man and the trans woman he unexpectedly falls for.

When Kinks singer Ray Davies croons, “Girls will be boys, and boys will be girls. It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world, Except for Lola. Lo lo lo lo Lola,” it’s with affection rather than disdain for his love interest.

~Trish Bendix

DAVID BOWIE - REBEL REBEL

Androgyny and genderfuckery were David Bowie’s calling cards, so his hit song about a societal rebel who’s maybe a boy, and maybe a girl is part of what made him so beloved amongst the queer community -- mostly because he did it in a way that was celebratory rather than sad or sadistic.

“Hey babe, your hair's alright/Hey babe, let's go out tonight/You like me, and I like it all/We like dancing and we look divine.”

~Trish Bendix

KATE PIERSON - MISTER SISTER

A track from the B-52s belter, Kate Pierson's first solo album, this song tells the story of a boy who overcomes gender dysphoria to become a fabulous woman.

Said Pierson: "Mister Sister" is about the power of transformation and the joy of being accepted for yourself, but more importantly the joy of self acceptance."

~Song Facts

BLUR - GIRLS AND BOYS

Perhaps one of the most catchy and sexy of gender-swapping pop hits, Blur’s “Girls and Boys” was a massive hit for the British band, who were looking for “Girls who are boys/Who like boys to be girls/Who do boys like they're girls/Who do girls like they're boys.”

Not only was it a chart success, but NME named it Song of the Year in 1994.

~Trish Bendix

ARCADE FIRE - WE EXIST

An accompanying video starring Andrew Garfield as a transgender woman was criticized for the band not having cast a trans actress instead, but the message of pride and self-acceptance stands out from this award-winning Canadian band.

“They walk in the room/And stare right through you/Talking like/We don't exist/But we exist.”

~Trish Bendix

EZRA FURMAN - BODY WAS MADE

A true anthem of loving oneself, openly queer and gender fluid indie star Ezra Furman’s 2015 single has the vocalist singing "Your body is yours at the end of the day / Don't let the hateful take it away / We want to be free and we go our own way.”

In press, Furman has referred to “Body Was Made” as a “protest song,” and a reclamation of one’s own identity.

~Trish Bendix

SUZANNE VEGA - AS GIRLS GO

The singer/songwriter says this song was directly inspired by a flirtatious relationship she had with a trans waitress, which ultimately made her consider her sexuality.

“You make a really good girl /As girls go,” Vega sings. “Still kind of look like a guy/I never thought to wonder why.”

~Trish Bendix

TERRORVISION - JOSEPHINE

The English rock band released this single in 1998, singing about Josephine, who they first knew as Joe. She was always a good friend (“when friends were hard to find”), and, thankfully, her transition was a non-issue.

“So we talked all night/And I just can't pretend/Although I lost old Joe/I got a new girlfriend.”

~Trish Bendix

DRAG QUEEN BURLESQUE

Now a little detour with Ms Violet at the Hard Candy Club in Louisville ...you have got to see this! ...I'M NOT KIDDING!

VIOLET CHACHKI - "CLOSER"

THE ART OF CROSS DRESSING

Now check out these Girls, no I mean Boys, no I mean Girls ...well, you know what I mean ...lol

JOCELYN'S WORK SISSY

You're going to love this! ...for those who are curious, or new, here's how you get started ...you know you want to do this! ...be a good girl and carefully follow instructions now, OK? ... :)

AEROSMITH - DUDE LOOKS LIKE A LADY

According to one story, Aerosmith’s hit song “Dude Looks Like a Lady” was simply inspired by an evening when the band hung out with the guys from Motley Crue, and left rolling their eyes at how every sentence the Crue guys said started with “Dude.”

But Desmond Child, who co-wrote the song along with Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, says the moment of inspiration went a little bit differently.

Child, who also wrote Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” and “Bad Medicine,” among other hits, was brought in to work with Aerosmith. Though the band hadn’t worked with an outside songwriter before, Steven Tyler showed him some of the lyrics he had been working on. One of them was called “Cruisin’ for the Ladies,” which Child immediately denounced as dull and already done.

Tyler reluctantly agreed, and said that “Cruisin’ for the Ladies” was actually an alternative title. The first title, he said, was inspired by a moment that happened at a bar not too long before. While imbibing a few drinks, Tyler said, the band spotted what they thought was an attractive girl with teased, bleach-blonde hair. When the girl eventually turned around, they realized that it wasn’t a girl at all—it was Vince Neil from Motley Crue, who did indeed have a pretty luscious mane of hair. “That dude looks like a lady,” one of them apparently said, and then continued to repeat the catchy little phrase all night.

Once Tyler told Child the real story behind the song, Child knew immediately that “Dude Looks Like a Lady” had to be the title. “I talked them into the whole scenario of a guy that walks into a strip joint and falls in love with the stripper on stage, goes backstage and finds out it's a guy. But … he's gonna go with it.”

Child says he later let Vince Neil in on the joke: “He had a good laugh.” The incident is acknowledged in Neil’s autobiography, so he must not have any hard feelings.

    OMG do you watch contrapoints (the youtuber)?

    https://www.youtube.com/user/ContraPoints

    go watch contrapoints! you will enjoy, i think.

    I like to wear skirts/sargongs, but i don't really try to be a girl or anything. i just wear them cause they are comfy.

    I've tried wearing womens underwear, but its very difficult to find any that feel healthy (they slowly crush your balls to death) It would be cool if they made women's underwear for men, lol.
    Is this still revelant?
    • Thank you for taking the time to read my new myTake.

      I am new to Contrapoints and don't know anything about it.

      This company makes really hot panties for women and many cut especially for men :)

      https://maybethispair.com/panties-for-men/

    • contrapoints... (s) he makes tranny rant videos that are high production value (for you tube rant videos). hilarious stuff, but her newest videos are insanely long. it might be better to start with stuff from 2 or 3 years ago.

      She basically transitioned/is still transitioning from a guy and has been a youtuber through the whole process. it's an interesting rabbit hole to dive into. hahah

      ty for the link, i will try out some of those. it's difficult to find fun clothes that are made for guys.

    Great mytake. Glad rupaul wasn't mentioned on here cannot stand rupaul some you can just tell there 100% fake legit doing it for money. Am a-okay with trans, drag or whatever it is just cannot stand some people who do it clearly for other reasons or just have no personaitly which rupaul does not lol.
    Sharon needles is one my fav people who is drag style and personailty is all there.
    i always listen to a song by Poppy called Am i a girl? Cause in a way speaks to me cause i am defo a guy but i can be femine. And if i was to choose like at birth i would pick to be a girl.
    But i am comfortable with been a guy and changing is a long process that just wouldn't be worth it to me esspacailly when i know i still wouldn't be 100% one.

    Also weird side not my personailty disorder i have a female persona. Which tenichally makes me genderfluid i suppose. also another weird side note one of my friends is now a girl changed his name. Fully in support but i do find it extremly strange cause ngl she has no femine like personailty. Like okay maybe we shouldn't have a so called "femine" personailty to need to be a girl.

    But it's different than that, cause myself i always kinda saw myself as femine at times and realised i would be one if i could of choose at birth. And normally i can read people well but from him i never got any indcation at all, he acts like a stright up dude and now he is a girl. Which is slighty confusing even my other friends ages ago said that there suprised i ain't the one who became female.
    joking that i am way more femine than him.
    Which is true some no gets, but i guess we don't know what others heads are like. Or maybe there is a such a thing as a guy becoming a mascline girl but to me that kinda defeats the purpose in my mind like ain't the whole point to becoming a female is cause you feel femine.

    But shrugs i don't understand it but i support it.
  • arabgoddess
    I meet a lot of drag queens lol I laugh at how they bitch about each other
    • I know, I'm wondering why there aren't any complaining about something they don't like about my post :)

    • Lololol.. Your take was quite long actually.. it shows how much time and effort you put it ♥

    Hi. Very interesting My Take - you always have a wonderful way of organizing your thoughts and layouts with the pics.

    I'd just like to add a couple of thoughts as I am good friends with a couple of transgender women. There is a massive difference between crossdressing and being transgender. And I got the sense from you post that you have them as similar and the survey questions are really about crossdressing - which is perfectly fine. I only mention it because I know the struggles trans women go through and some of it seems based on not understanding why they feel the way they do.

    Again, love your posts - and hope this comes across as intended a unsolicited but helpful thoughts :)
    • Thank you Mr T.

      Yes, I did address that briefly in one sentence in my opening paragraph as follows. It was incoherently worded a bit, so I can see how you missed it. It was, however put there specifically due to the point that you brought up, as I know that the transgender community is quite sensitive about that issue, and can get their feelings hurt quite easily over it.

      Here was my incoherent sentence...

      "This myTake primarily about cross dressing and not any transgender social/political activism aspects of this issue and/or a play on politically correct terminology"

      Here it is re-written a little more the way I meant it to be...

      "This myTake is primarily about cross dressing, and not about any transgender social/political activism aspects of this issue, nor a play on any politically correct terminology"

      Meaning that this myTake is more focused on the cross dressing aspects of this issue, as you said and noticed.

      I hope I have clarified the issue somewhat :)

    • TCredo

      Hi there and will admit I had to look around with the Mr. callout lol :)

      I appreciate the clarification and that you took my comment as intended. I did see that and agree it's worded better in your reply. I think what caused me to point it out was the "transgender / cross dressing survey" which sort of equates them with the "/" and the questions were really for cross dressing (which is cool for those into it). As I read it, I thought of my transgender friends thus I felt the urge to say something :)

      Love your posts - and appreciate the exchange.

    I don’t really get into the culture, but I’ll answer these questions.
    1) Are you a panty-only cross-dresser, or do you wear more than that, like bra and nylons, etc?
    Bra and panties mostly. Sometimes I try on some more things.
    2) Do you feel you have to sneak doing this behind your wife, girlfriends, or parents back because she/they are unaccepting of it... or is she/they OK with it and you don't have to hide it?
    Yes.
    3) Do you feel like you are a girl living in a boys body or do you feel like a guy that gets turned on by wearing girls lingerie or more?
    It turns me on. I do wonder how it’s like for a girl and just like to see how it’s like.
    4) At what age where you when you first discovered your gender identity realization and/or your cross dressing desires?
    About 13.
    5) Did you see something in porn, or in real life, that first made you curious about trying cross dressing? ... what was it?
    Not sure exactly.
    6) Are you "passable" (meaning you look like a girl when you are dressed like one and all made up), or not so much?
    I haven’t really tried. I’m sure if I wanted to, I could find a makeup artist who is good.
    7) Do you use just female clothing only or do you also wear a wig and breast forms?
    Clothing only so far.
    8 ) Is the dressing up part as far as you go, or are you also doing breast hormone treatments, or more?
    Just dressing up. I don’t think I want to do that.
    9) Do you cross dress everyday or only on occasion?
    Well bra and panties almost every day at home.
    10) Are you also into the ABDL lifestyle (Adult Baby Diaper Lover)? ... girls can answer this one also if you are into this
    Don’t know what that is.
    11) If so, is it the DL part only you are into or both?
    Don’t know what that is.
