Overview

Is society ready for men who openly express femininity? Can men transcend gender lines and maintain their sense of self-worth and dignity? These are the questions asked to over 850 crossdressers worldwide in a survey used as the basis of this book. From an early age boys are taught to follow the stereotypes of maleness. When the inner desire to express femininity exerts a greater force than the desire to live up to the appropriate image for masculinity, conflict may develop. This provocative book addresses these conflicts and provides solutions.

This book helped me find myself! After reading Dr. Rudd’s wonderful first book, My Husband Wears My Clothes, I was eager to read her second book, Crossdressing With Dignity. I was not disappointed. This book gave me the answers I was seeking about the fears and guilt feelings I had experienced most of my life when I admitted to myself and others that I was a crossdresser. After reading this book which describes over 800 crossdressers like me, I know I am not alone and I am an OK person. In fact I learned I may have found the best of both sides of my personality, the femininity I love and the masculinity that provides balance in my life. Thank you Dr. Rudd for writing this book!
