Never for one second while wearing men’s clothing or any other type of clothing, do I feel like I want to be a man. There is nothing about becoming a heterosexual man that is in any way appealing to me. I wear ‘men’s clothing’ because I like the aesthetic. I feel sexier in a button-down and a bow-tie than I ever have in a dress. I am drawn to men’s clothing because it allows me to be in control of how my body and person are perceived. In men’s clothing, no one has visual ownership of my curves, breasts, behind, or any other part of my body. (Why do we have to gender items of clothing so hard anyway?) Like calm down everyone, the world isn’t going to spin out of the galaxy. They’re just clothes.
