I found some people in hiding tend to find washing the clothes difficult, especially if they are living with family that don’t approve of transgenderism, So how do many in hiding wash their clothes is it through friends or stealth? Why throw clothes away which is costly or do people wait with the purge!
Another issue I found is summer time when its holiday time with the family, I myself years ago had to throw my clothes away, out of the car so I wouldn’t get caught cross dressing. Used to brake my heart throwing my clothes away.
Shopping without Fear
Shopping for a transgender that’s just starting out on their experiences can be challenging at best, the things that go through the mind such as;
Will they judge me
Will they know me
Will they refuse to serve me if its obvious I am buying for myself.
The answer to this problem, is it is all in the mind because society only lives by 2 genders in the west we are taught narrow visions, so to over come the problem which relates to fear, is to train the mind to be confident.
When I started shopping, I was omg I am scared so I overcame this by thinking;
I am unique, I am special because I dress for me not others.
They wont refuse me a sale as they will lose sales income.
No one will care and if their is a issue and your terrified make up a someones birthday excuse.
All my years since I have had only one sales attendant give me a horrible look and I soon changed her look when I asked her to take the look off her face or get the manager as I was making a complaint rather than continuing a sale transaction.
You just need to train the mind because for all transgenders it is your passage of rights to buy any item you want to buy and don’t anyone tell you different.
