The world of a cross-dresser is normal yet different when compared to others. Their orientations may confuse us, but with crystal clarity, they lead their lives by appreciating their appearances especially through their clothing. The dressing attributes play a very prominent role in the life of a cross-dresser. A man who opts for female clothing or a woman who opts for male clothing daily or occasionally is treated as a cross-dresser.
You may find many transvestites on the streets who ask for money by clapping, who also attend people's homes to grace their festivities to bless a newly wedded couple or a newborn baby. You can encounter them in many parts of India. All of them are cross-dressers but of a little variation. These are handled in a demeaning way who always gets attacked by people's hypocrisy. There is a difference between a transvestite and a cross-dresser. Unlike cross-dressers, transvestites always prefer maintaining the same dress code, like a permanent cross-dresser.
Now you may wonder, what makes a cross-dresser opt the cross-dressing style temporarily. To clear the clouds, you must observe the fact that a cross-dresser can be of any orientation including heterosexuality. As it is completely about opting the opposite sex clothing, all cross-dressers need not be Transgenders. Trans-women are not at all considered as cross-dressers though they wear female clothing. Because the orientation itself portrays transformed personalities, hence, trans-women and trans-men dress according to their orientation to match their souls with their bodies.
You may think that who are these people who prefer a cross-dressing style? Well, as mentioned earlier cross-dressers can be from various orientations who consider the various reasons to get into the shoes of a cross-dresser. Some reasons are completely funny whereas some reasons are typically intense and emotional.
Have you seen men flaunting mini dresses in bachelor parties? Have you identified Indian men wearing saris on their shirts in various events especially to mimic females? The same with females too, who dress up as men to imitate their partners, fathers, or brothers. These kinds of cross-dressing events are utterly tagged as fun moments. It's either to degrade the other gender or else to have fun by teasing each other. These people irk others, especially the ones who make fun of the queer community.
