You probably know that I answer the emails and keep an eye on the forum, for Chameleons. In the last two years or so, I’ve noticed a change -if you pardon the pun – in who contacts the group. Yes, a lot of our number are regular crossdressers (/waves), although we’re seeing a gradual diversification.
Questions from women who identify as men, and also from younger people too. Okay, mostly teenagers, but still, I think we’re, and to steal a well-known headline, reaching at a tipping point.
It seems, well, at least to me, that the trans elements of society are making themselves known earlier. They are speaking up and early. I still see conservative types who are trying to push the genie back in the bottle. Good luck with that. You may as well try knitting with fog.
[ Update: By some strange turn of the planets and Fate, everyone, bar YT, was out of the house on Saturday. The Ever Lovely Mrs J and Little Miss had headed out to help at a charity thing, while Wee Man, was staying over at Mrs J’s parents. For the first time in a long time, I had a Saturday morning to myself. What to do, what to do? 🙂 After Hoovering and tidying up, I went through my second wardrobe: tried a few things on and put aside the items I no longer want. The less-flapjack-and-more-fruit diet seems to be working. My weight may not have dropped massively, but my shape is less boxy and I found favourite clothes that fit again. Woo-hoo! It was odd not bothering with any make-up, but it was warm and I wanted to get the housework and lawns sorted, rather than worrying about removing all the evidence. All in all, a very nice start to the weekend! ]
