Crossdressing, Androgyny, and Gender Kink

Man in Wig and Dress

Androgyny is as old as humanity. There have always been people who crossed over the gender line in bizarre ways. Men who wanted to act and dress as women do, women who took more to the interests and appearances of men.

In Shakespeare’s times, crossdressing on the stage was played for gags. Women at the time were not allowed to act, so boys always played the parts of women. Often the women in the plays (as they were portrayed by boys) would pretend to be men for the purposes of deception. The rabbit hole went deep when males pretending to be females pretended to be males. In essence they were playing bad imitations of their true selves for the sake of laughter.

The rock and roll era has always been about androgyny. From the sixties onward, long hair, makeup, and frilly clothes could equally be found on a man or a woman’s frame. The fluid sexuality that went along with this was a part of the times. Even in the macho eighties, glam metal bands had members who looked much like the women in their videos.

Today the androgynous look has been taken to a whole new level. The rock and roll, and the drag queen roots of androgyny have blossomed into full gender fluidity. People are so down on gender these days that they don’t even want to be thought of as male or female. They just want odd symbols and unpronounceable words to be their pronouns.

People today love the idea of being unidentifiable as either a man or a woman. They revel in the confusion. This is in some ways the highest form of kink. It is an actual scrambling of the senses for the purpose of intellectual and sexual enjoyment.

It doesn’t even matter what appendages you have in your pants anymore. As long as you feel attracted to whatever the other person has in theirs, it’s good. As long as the appendage you have in your pants doesn’t match the gender that such an appendage is usually associated with, you are doing the gender kink all the right way!

This kink is easy to try at home. If you have a female body, cut your hair in a masculine way, then wear masculine clothes, or frumpy attire that don’t accentuate your body. If you’re in a male body, wear a dress perhaps, and try a touch of makeup. Maintain some semblance of the other, but some of yourself too. The object if to cause confusion when you walk down the street.

Gender fluidity is a playful way to cast off the grand narratives about who and what you’re supposed to be. If it makes some people upset, then all the better. Have fun, and be good to yourself!
