I get frustrated, but not angry. Anger is destructive. I just try and go my own way as best as I can. Sometimes I have gone out in a skirt and she has not known. I don't tell her but if she asks I don't lie to her. On occasion she has asked and I have been truthful, that there was no problem, nobody said anything and acceptance was there from the public. What she thought at the time I don't know and I didn't ask. So far there has not been any blowback but she does say to put shorts on when she is around and I have to go out. If she ain't around then it's open season.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

Hello Jenn03,

I just read your piece and I LOVE IT!!

It's well-written and I feel, accurate.

Thank you so much for saying all that and in such terms that no one can mistake your meaning.

Well done.

My other half is aware that I enjoy wearing skirts/dresses and is acceptable but just not in front of him which is a bit of a shame but it means I'm not having to fully hide it
