I am continuing to write on my observations of practicing cross dressing and reading the observations of cross dressers about such things as passing. Even small differences like errors in applying facial makeup or failure to observe commonly understood rules of etiquette on relations between women in public places can destroy across dressing males feeling of success.
It’s the little things
A common remark in postings by cross dressers and people who identify as trans gender is that somehow their body didn’t correspond with how they felt inside. The division between outer appearance and inner feelings. Is common in the work of Erving Goffman particularly when he writes about the “self”.
