FEMINIZATION AS THERAPY

Just a little thought on one of my favorite kinky past times...

     Traditionally in our society, men are raised to kill *or* be killed to defend the empire. The main thrust of such a child rearing practice is to blunt men’s capacity for caring. -It’s harder to shoot someone you care about than one you don’t. This is one of the ways sexism is profoundly hurtful to men. “Big boys don’t cry!," they are told from an age that isn’t very big at all. Men’s incapacity to cry may be one of the most salient causes of violence today (since we were after all bred to BE violent).

     The male-female divide really just has one main "issue" (amongst the squares, anyway): different genitals. In other words, women can and should have all those characteristics thought of as male – aggressiveness, assertiveness, physical strength, power – and men can and should have all the characteristics thought of as female – caring, softness, tenderness, sexiness, lovingness. 

     People cross-dress for different reasons, but at least some of you do it because you sincerely want to get in touch with the “feminine” side of you, denied to you by sexism. 

     For men to fully embrace their “feminine” side and vice versa, femininization enables them to be whole humans, embracing both yin and yang energy. What could be wrong with that, I ask?

Thoughtfully yours,
