Anorexia and Bulimia = Body dysmorphia and considered an anxiety/mental

illness/condition, that requires psychiatric treatment.

Specialty. Psychiatry. Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), occasionally still called dysmorphophobia, is a mental disorder characterized by the obsessive idea that some aspect of one's own body part or appearance is severely flawed and warrants exceptional measures to hide or fix their dysmorphic part on their person.

Doesn't transitioning come under the same umbrella

Sorry that word is not in my vocabulary. My correct pronoun is heterosexual.
It's bigoted, intolerant and offensive not to use it.

Using incorrect terms is a hate crime.

And yes plenty of straight men who cross dress but are not attracted to the same sex.
It's just drag without the singing.

If straight women can do drag, why not straight men?
Karaoke in a dress anyone? Could be fun. I'll buy the first round.

a reply to: The GUT

I am a lesbian, because I can honestly say I have never slept with or am attracted to men.
I even have my social media accounts when the option is there set to it for years.

Kind of hilarious when I update things on sites like facebook and long term friends only just realise it says "has changed HER picture" has "updated her profile"

They be like "do you know you're set to a female on here?" and when I reply to the affirmative and they ask "why?" with genuine confusion I always answer the same way "because it's funny as hell when people eventually notice and freak out"

Should see them when they realise I am in a relationship with my wife's alt gaming account under a different name.
haha the times she has been inboxed asking if she knows I am seeing another woman.

What can I say. Life's too short. I'm serious when I need to be.
Plus it's fun using humor to point out the hypocrisy, irony and double standards of others.

Wanted to ask this in a chatty thread for a long time, not sure.

Can one be a cisgender transvestite?

That is, all people have a bit of both genders.
But you're expected to be an alpha male-type as a male.
You don't measure up, so you compensate by becoming hyper-masculine.

It's a different type of drag.
You want to be more your own gender than is possible, and you go over the top.

So is it possible to be in cisgender-drag?

I'd define it as wanting to be your own gender so much that you start choosing clothes or pastimes that are far more butch than you actually feel.

It's just so ultra-conformist that society might not even recognize it as "drag".
But sure, if you have a smirk doing it, I guess it's drag.
Yes absolutely, as drag queens are not always transgender. Some fully identify as males for example. So you can be a cisgender male who likes to dress in drag. There are some who even say they are straight.

A straight drag queen?? No I don't think so. Unless they haven't come up with a name for it yet.....

What, many heterosexual drag-queens.

Barry Humphries (Dame Edna) being one.

With their last breath, can I see my mum and dad?

What to say?
Nope, they don't want to see you.
They said they never had a son like you.

They're busy.

Strange, next to me brother, you can fight for your country.

But no army can fight for compassion.

rupaul says everything is drag. basically any gender role performance is a type of drag. so broadly speaking, yes? all the ways we act and dress to signify gender are learned behaviors.
