First off, my user name is Shannon01. I originally wanted to use KeriShannon, as my real name is Kerry, but when I registered, it was not accepted. So my apologies to the other Shannon on this site. (I never really like the name Kerry, but I always liked the name Shannon, even tho' both are male/female names.
So, how did I get into crossdressing? Well, it started some years ago, I was working outside, and it was very hot. I was wearing cut-off jeans, but they seemed restrictive and still hot. So I took some scissors and cut thru the crotch, and wow! what a difference. I felt a nice breeze between my legs. I had no idea!
So I bought a kilt. But it was scratchy and heavy. And kind of long. I didn't really like it. So I made a mini skirt out of another pair of jeans. I loved it. It was light and soft, and I liked the way the frayed denim felt across my legs as I walked. I also have long hair, and with a tank top, I looked surprisingly feminine. So I got curious and went to amazon and bought some light weight summer dresses and tunics. I liked them too. So now, when I get home, especially after a hard, hot days work, I can't wait to strip off my jeans and put on a comfortable dress.
Now try to understand, I don't identify as a woman and I have no desire to go out in public and try to pass myself off as female. I like being a guy. I used to be rabidly homophobic, but now I see things in a different light, and now I feel a kinship with those of you who want to pass as female. I admire you. But that isn't the road I want to travel. I was on another crossdresser site, and some of them tried to shame me into going public, so I left. I hope you can accept that what you want, isn't what I want. I just want to be comfortable in my own house.
So what am I wearing right now? I live in the Mojave desert. Today it wasn't all that hot, but a little while ago we had a downpour of rain. I went outside with a hat and coat to roll up the windows in my truck. It was coming down really hard. I was about to go back indoors, when I remembered my bee hive. I didn't want them to get washed out. So I put some boards over their hive to deflect that rain. By now I was thouroghly soaked. I went inside, took my hat and coat off, and my soaked jeans. I put on a mini-kilt and t-shirt. Nothing sexy, just comfortable.
