I'm not sure if this is the right place to post it since it's mostly related to gender identity issues. I just know that I noticed that I happen to not feel very comfortable with my gender role a while ago and I know that I am cisgender, but I still have a few issues and doubts about a few topics. I have been wishing for more masculine clothing probably since I was a kid when I saw a tomboy in some movie. I really thought I could dress like that once I got older, but I had no permission to do that and I bet my family still wouldn't let me do it even with the fact that I happen to be an adult already. So, I wanted to know a few things... 1) Is there a very high risk of being raped or physically attacked because of the way you dress? It sounds like a very dumb question, but I feel the need to know what kind of mess I could get through if I ended up by starting to "crossdress" around there. I'm pretty sure I won't pass as a male. 2) Do a masculine dressed individual needs to be "tough"? I'm the complete opposite of that. I'm very feminine in my manneirisms and it could look like my clothes don't fit in my personality at all. Is that okay? 3) Is it bad that the only reason I feel like I want to dress in a more atypical way is because I just love the masculine style and actually believe it would look good on me? Most people I know/heard of do it to show their gender identity or personality type, but hell, I just suck at acting masculine. I don't even try doing so. Well, sorry if this thread offended anyone. I just want to know what I am planning on putting myself through. I'm sure I will do it, even if it is just in private for me to regret it later. I decided that I'd better regret trying than not trying.
