What if there was a Cure for Crossdressing?

I have a subject for consideration by the group, if you are so inclined to do so. If there were a cure for crossdressing, i.e a pill that you could take to make you normal, would you take it. Let me just say that I have been crossdressing off and on, since I was nine years old. While that is the case, and I have been to numerous TG/CD Clubs, etc., as well as been out in public, there are only a select few people that know that, other than my friends in the TG/CD World. That being said, if there was a reasonably simple cure, I would take it. Do I accept myself for who I am, Yes! I am sure that based upon my answer to that question, some of you would argue that I don’t, but the problem is not me accepting myself, it is the rest of the world accepting that part of me. Plain and simple, my life would be much simpler, and less emotionally challenging, if I did not have this side to my personality.
Thanks Michelle.

About cdinyc2012

Crossdressers International Incorporated is a member-supported adult transgendered group focused on support and social activities, serving the New York City metropolitan area. CDI is qualified as a non-profit corporation under section 501(c) 7 of the federal tax code. In the beginning, as stated in “Our History”, our founders envisioned CDI to be an all inclusive, welcoming haven for those seeking to come to terms with their transgendered nature. While the majority of our members and friends identify as cross dressers, we have served as a refuge for those who identify as transsexual, drag queen, and gender queer as well. Historically, our focus has been on the m-f crossdresser/transgendered. However, we do welcome those who identify from the f-m experience. While many of our members are long time comfortable with their transgender identity, we have never lost sight that our basic mission is to stand ready to provide a welcoming sanctuary for those who are taking their very first steps of self discovery. We know from our own experience that this can be a frightening time for those who have been closeted. The fear of loss of family, friends, employment, and standing in ones community can be overwhelming. And all for merely being gender different. Even today in our changing times the fear of discovery, ridicule, and worse can be terrifying for those who are attempting to safely practice their gender expression. WE are here for you. We make no claims of being “expert” in any matters, yet through our individual and collective experience we are highly knowledgeable. CDI also serves as a resource center where we can direct you to qualified professionals should that be desired. In short, we believe that groups like ours help to save lives. Sometimes just a welcoming smile and spoken kindness can be enough to assure someone (and maybe that’s you!) that they are not alone. For whatever reason each of us were dealt this hand from birth. For years many of us have considered it a curse. At CDI we believe that once liberated from the isolation of the closet that in time you will come to see your own transgenderism as a “gift”. So whether experienced or not, come - We welcome you, and we exist for you!

  1. Actually, I wish there was a cure for homophobia and trans-phobia.

  2. I am a musician. One of the reasons I became a musician was because I would hear songs that I would love so much I would want to play them. I wanted to experience them, feel how it would be to be that musician playing that song.

    That is how I look at my transgenderism. It is a song I sing, a riff I play. Some people may love the song, some may despise it, but it really doesn’t matter. I play the song for myself and God. Period.
