Way back in grad school when I was learning how to be a counselor, we did this little exercise in a gender studies class. What does this have to do with crossdressing tips? Bear with me just a moment - one of the things I find strange between my MtF and FtM clients is the increased violence that male cross dressers face.
Genetic men and women are raised differently. Its a fact that us social scientists argue about the why's and how's, but it is a FACT. Genetic women are socialized differently from a very young age, and learning to think like a woman and keep yourself save is the single most valuable of all the crossdressing tips I can offer.
This is a little difficult to do by yourself and you will get better results if you poll a bunch of friends - preferably including not only cross dressers but genetic men and women who would consider themselves "straight" and rather vanilla.
Close your eyes and imagine that you are out one evening after work, in boy mode, shopping at the mall for something blasé like a gift for a friend.
When you leave the mall proper and begin to walk out to your car, it has become dark outside.
Well, the interesting difference is in how genetic males and females describe their different walks out. Almost every straight man in my class and just about everywhere just walks to his car and doesn't really think about anything "out of the ordinary." Genetic women, on the other hand usually enter high alert mode when walking outside alone at night.
Crossdressing Tips for Safety
Even if you think it will never happen to you, safety when alone is almost always on a genetic female's mind. Increase your confidence by keeping these crossdressing tips in mind: Always lock all your car doors, even when you are inside and driving - car jacking happens and women or those passing as females are the most frequent victims.
