Re: The future of the term 'crossdreaming' and our community

I will get to the point. My revision of my article 'What is crossdreaming' http://transcendmovement.com/what-is-crossdreaming/ has raised an important issue.  We all prefer the term 'crossdreaming' to 'autogynephilia'...and I think we all agree that a strength of the term is that it implies somethi...

Re: Songs that make you crossdream

Monique, A very cute song. I totally get how it facilitates your vision of your perfect life. Our fantasies in this forum are all very different, so naturally our triggers are different as well. My fantasy has aged with me over the years. I have always been a rather strong female in my fantasies, a...

Re: I am an autogynephile. What does my identity imply for transactivism?

Monique, Interesting point, but I see something in it you may, or may not, have intended. Why do we worry about other people's expectations at all? My belief is that being trans involves following your own inner voice, and when you listen to anybody else's voice, it just gets in the way. Some peopl...

Re: I am an autogynephile. What does my identity imply for transactivism?

If, for argument sake, that person’s specific form of crossdreaming is “just a fetish” how does that exclude them from being a trans-activist? Every voice that is added to the cause strengthens it and gives it more weight. On a different note, why does this guy feel he must have some relation to so...

Re: Songs that make you crossdream

@zena. That is A Walk on the Wild Side by Lou Reed. Lou Reed, David Bowie and others in that circle of artists respected trans women, probably because so many of them were some kind of queer themselves. It is not, as some seem to claim these days (not understanding the shifts of history) transphobi...

Re: Songs that make you crossdream

Okay, here's another corny song that always gave me a sting of crossdreaming when growing up (1980): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUlhygu4ogI And I agree. Only way I'd want to be a wife would be as a housewife or kept woman. But unlike most (real) women though - I guess - I would want my husband ...

Re: My favourite period in fashion...

I tend to associate fashion with trends in music and other social phenomena. This was sort of a watershed period in a lot of ways. Disco was dying and the bands that would come to dominate later in the 80s were still in their ascendancy. It was a period with a lot of everything, and not very much o...

Re: Nikki & John podcast covers "Autogynephilia". You have to listen to this one!

Listened a couple of minutes into this, but with a grand total of two girlfriends and insignificant sexual action (yes, to some extent my crossdreaming did get in the way of performing back then), my experience with relationships is actually quite limited, so I didn't relate to it that much. I'm not...

Re: 4chan discusses crossdreaming

To begin with, the theory must be able to make predictions, lots of predictions (at least relative to the size of the theory) and there must be constraints on how said predictions follow from the hypothesized premises. Otherwise, you might as well end up with an ad-hoc story. Unless we are talking ...
