Every now and then, I hear somebody ask…
“Am I too old to crossdress?” or “Am I too old to transition as a woman?”
The simple answer to this question is NO.
Whether you are 33 or 73 – and whether you aim to express yourself through crossdressing, or live as a woman full time – it’s NEVER too late to be your true femme self.
Life is short and you deserve to make the most of your precious time on earth.
Does this mean you should act on every frivolous whim that crosses your mind? Of course not. And obviously, life-changing moves like hormones or surgery need to be given serious thought.
But I believe the true desires or your heart are meant to be expressed – no matter how long they’ve been buried.
In fact, embracing your feminine side can give you a whole new lease on life. I see it all the time: People seem to grow years younger when they make the decision to be themselves fully.
Having the courage to express your true self also inspires others to do the same. The world needs more of this!
In the words of Laverne Cox, “It is revolutionary for any trans person to choose to be seen and visible in a world that tells us we should not exist.”
I’ll say it again: You are NEVER too old to be your true femme self.
So go for it, girlfriend: Buy the shoes, schedule the makeover, contact the gender therapist – or do whatever it is that you’ve been holding back on.
You deserve it. And it’s not too late.
Do you agree that age is just a number?
Now I’d love to hear from YOU on this topic …
How old were you when you decided to embrace your fab femme self? (Or are you still waiting?)
