I got drunk and talked into it once. I mostly agreed to it because it was for a charity event, but I might have been a little curious about what I would look like in fishnets. Finding women's clothing in my size was nearly impossible, and there are photos out there that I have tried to pay people to burn.
Well I'm not sure you would call it "cross dressing". I'm a girl but I really like wearing suits and other men's fashions on some days, on other days I wear very feminine things like dresses. I don't think its cross dressing unless you are trying to identify with the gender.......and I would REALLY never want to be a man even if I was wearing a damn three-piece tuxedo.

I used to crossdress a lot, but I haven't done it that much lately. I think I might enjoy it more if I was better at it. I own a binder, but even with it I don't think I make a very convincing boy. And I can't find a lot of men's clothes that fit me.
No, I personally would never cross-dress. I love looking like a girl, but I don't mind those that do cross-dress. I also don't see why men don't have the privilege of wearing makeup. I think eyeliner looks good on guys.
Oh, I know. I knew a guy (not personally) who would cross-dress because he couldn't handle being male, and didn't like the way people treated him, and felt as if he was supposed to be treated more 'delicately' as a woman, and on top of that, he felt as if he was a female inside a male's body. Some people do it for fun, some people do it because they feel they should, or have to, some people do it just to rebel against society and make a point, etc.
Probably. It was a long time ago, so I don't know exactly where the person is or what they're doing. I do have a personal friend, though, who happens to believe that he's a male in a female's body. He identifies as male, and it was the first time I'd ever been friends with a transgender. Which was really quite different for me seeing as how I was raised to keep away from people like that. I'm glad I was able to break away from what I was taught and smart enough to find what I believe, and not what I was taught to believe.
But being friends with someone like him really opened my eyes to what they go through. I know it feels terrible for him to feel like he's in the wrong body. The same goes out to anyone else who feels that way.
I'm glad you broke your "Programming" so to speak. It took a lot of willpower for me to realise what was wrong. I was raised so that anything identified as "gay" in society was an incredibly pathetic and embarrasing thing.
So, rather than knowing I was a transsexual lady, I just bottled them up.
Eh, again I don't understand why clothes have to be gendered in the first place (by now it's probably appropriate to tell I sort of grew up outisde most mainstream social influences), especially since body types are pretty versatile BUT I have no problem wearingmale and female clothes and both of them mixed up. I'd think that though, esp for men, crossdressing is actually dangerous. I propose everyone wears what they want and no-one bothers them about it.
I'm sure I'd look fabulous in a dress but it's not quite for me. It just doesn't seem comfortable at all, it's generally aesthetics over efficiency and the things that do look comfortable are fairly unisex anyway. I've tried high heels just to see what it was like to walk in though. It's different for guys anyway, we already have a lot of comfort in our fashion so there's nothing to gain apart from appearing more feminine.
I wear basketball shorts, random T-shirts that don't even match, tennis shoes, and no makeup. It's not because I want to be a boy, it's just because it's comfortable and I don't care how I look. Jewelry? Nah, I'll pass. Some days I even forget to brush my hair.
I'm so flat chested, I've actually been mistaken for a boy by a few people
