A crossdresser's thoughts on life, fashion, fabulousness, and (oh yeah) dressing up

How flattery can get you nowhere

If you’ve ever perused that feed to the right of your screen, you’ve discovered that I am indeed on Flickr.  And once or twice on this blog, I’ve opined of how Flickr can be a nice avenue to show off one’s outer beauty.

While that outer beauty can invite serious and appreciative comments, it can also attract the words of someone with less than pure, even downright tawdry, intentions.  Case in point:  Recently, from out of the blue, someone who checked me out on Flickr sent me a message.  And this gentleman… well, let’s just say he thought I was more than hot.  Here’s a partial blow-by-blow summary of how it went.  The italicized sections are some of what he said.

“Hi Allison,I’m a older admirer.”

Well, sir, good for you!  I just wish you knew how to use the right indefinite article.  Seriously, an “an” goes before a word that begins with a vowel sound.  Oh, and a space comes after a comma.  Speaking of punctuation…

“When I ran across your sexy Pic’s and read your profile! I was totally overwhelmed by your beauty & sexuality!”

Either he seriously doesn’t know how to use punctuation and capitalization, or he just wants to shout from the rooftops of how he finds beautiful feminine figures online.  And while he’s trying to be complimentary, and I do appreciate the adulation, I was already at this point starting to think he uses his, uh, [pointing toward the “down there” region] for a brain.

But at least he’s trying to be a gentleman.  To wit:

“I would enjoy taking you out to a 5 star restaurant showing your beauty off to all the guest!”

Well, if it’s a 5-star restaurant (again, note the proper punctuation), I’m betting it has more than one guest on any given evening.  I mean, the food must be that well done, right?  Also, the usual 5-star restaurant tends to attract guests that are more glamorous than I’ll ever be.

But this gentleman caller has more than fine wine and filet mignon on his mind:

“Return to your place for a finally night cap!”

I presume you mean “final night cap,” sir?

“You disappear into your bed room.I come in and you only are wearing heels and garter!”

[*groan*] Oh, boy.

“I start kissing between your sexy thighs! Raising yoiur long very thick…”

And here’s the confirmation that his mind is nowhere but in a gutter.  That ellipsis is there to omit the fact that he wanted an adventure with a certain part of my anatomy.  You know the kind that’s, uh… [pointing toward the “down there” region].

“I’m sure you’re a very heavy shooter because,you never had your young ladies [pointing toward the “down there” region once again] worship by a admirer like me!! Never Ever!!”

Okay, dude, that’s it.  As a reminder to you, and any other gentleman caller who’s reading this or admiring how I dress, just because I may display a beautiful feminine visage to the general public and online world doesn’t mean I’m going to don lingerie and garters for any Tom, Dick, and Harry out there.  And just because I post pretty pictures on Flickr doesn’t mean I want to get nasty under the covers.  It’s a very safe bet my fellow male-to-female crossdressers feel the very same way.

So, to sum up, we’re not here for your entertainment.  Treat us with respect and not as a sex object.  If you think otherwise, just stay home and clean all that drool from your mouth.  Oh, and sign up for a grammar class while you’re at it.

“Allison I hope I haven’t said anything offensive toward you in anyway?”

Oh, dude, that horse has long since left the barn and is never coming back.  But have a nice day, okay?

A part of the trans community ("cross-dresser" is the term that applies to me) who finds themselves much more expressive and somewhat more confident when presenting in a feminine persona. An admirer and supporter of those who are fashionable, fabulous, and friendly (LGBT or otherwise). Someone who tries to be witty and unique, but is not even remotely perverted or a pariah (I am a real human being, just like you). Using various writing styles on this blog to communicate thoughts and feelings concerning my life experiences, fashion sense, and the world at large (and maybe impressing my high school creative writing teacher who deservedly gave me middling grades).
