Understanding Tgirls (Intro Video By Rachel >>)
♥ Here is a great article touching on some of the typical myths about TGirls/Crossdressers. A good start to your reading and learning about us!
♥ Here is a terrific article on how to discuss with your significant other the topic of you being a TGirl. It is a good starting point and also a good article for your S.O. to read as well.
♥ Here is a brief article that will help you understand why he needs to crossdress. Yes, it is a need, not a desire.
There are many definitions involving Transgenderism. Here are a few helpful ones to help you understand your S.O.
♥ Want to know what wives of actual crossdressers think and feel? These letters will help.
♥ Thinking of going out in public with your TGirl S.O.? Some things to think about are in this article.
♥ A common misconception is that TGirls are gay or suffer from some sort of perverted behavior. This article touches on this.
♥ Another myth is that your S.O. being a TGirl and having a feminine side means that he cannot be in love with you anymore. This article discusses love in a relationship with a TGirl.
♥ You know about his crossdressing either by discussion or discovery. Do you still love him?
♥ After asking if your S.O. is gay, the next topic is usually that of trust. Can you still trust him?
♥ Can your S.O. actually look like a woman? Seeing your boyfriend or husband all made up and dressed like a woman can be scary, shocking, delightful, or exciting. Most TGirls do their very best to appear very feminine which includes not just clothing, but also the right wig, make up, walking, and demeanor.
Most Transgenderd Girls are in or will be in relationships with a genetic girl. Realizing that being a TGirl is not readily accepted by society is well known by TGirls and this becomes a difficult area when in a relationship, especially when married. The majority of TGirls are married and are not gay. Living with this "secret" is difficult at best, but opening up to a Significant Other (S.O.) is perhaps much more trying. We all want our S.O. to know our feminine side and to accept this part of us, but communicating this to our S.O. can be a positive or negative experience. The discussion has both strengthened and destroyed marriages.
I created this page to not recommend such open discussions with your S.O. and not to discourage it either. It is a personal decision. The articles and resources here will help you if you are considering opening up to your S.O. This page is also a place where you can have your S.O. learn more about the life of a TGirl better. I will continue to add resources here as I find them. If you have any suggestions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I am here to help if I can.
Here are a few of my own personal thoughts ...
I have made a few movies to hopefully help your significant other understand us TGirls a bit more. Just click the video thumbnail above the title to open the video (will actually go to my YouTube page).
Below are some other videos made by others that help explain what its like to be a Tgirl too.
