Are Men Women When They Wear Lingerie? The Fantasy of Reality
There's a funny objection to the idea of men wearing lingerie, and that's the objection to the idea that men are imagining themselves to be women. For some people, the very idea is against all that is natural and good in the world. It is unthinkable. It is... unimaginable.
However, for the men who wear women's lingerie and like to imagine themselves to be women also, the act of imagining themselves as being women is not only immensely enjoyable and stimulating, it can also bring comfort and peace.
A very small percentage of life is lived in what one might call objective reality. Because all experience is colored by perception, we see very little of the world as it is. This is most obvious in delusional people, such as those who think they can sing on American Idol, but it happens to all of us, because as much as we would like to see the world as it is, it is simply impossible not to be affected by the filters we have picked up throughout our lives.
Our view of 'reality' is incredibly and inevitably skewed to the point where it bears very little resemblance to reality. Even the most pragmatic and unimaginative of us lives in a world of filtered information which creates an illusion we then happily roll around in, mistaking it for being the 'real deal'.
The trouble makers in the world are the people who are unable to understand this little concept. They are unable to understand the fact that their reality is a fabrication of their minds, and instead they mistake it for some kind of truth, which then gives them the idea and feeling that they have the right to defend their truth, their reality. (Fundamentalists typify this kind of thinking to a T.)
I am straying a little from my point, but I hope not too far. My main point, is this. Men who imagine themselves as women when they wear their lingerie and other women's things are engaging in a harmless and indeed, natural past time. It is entirely natural for humans to wish and dream and to find solace and enjoyment in those wishes and dreams. There is a reason the most highly paid people on the planet are those who can make us forget the mundane and enable us to escape into fantasy worlds where we are stronger, better, faster, more loved, more intelligent, more powerful than we could ever feel in our every day lives.
It's funny, for my first and favorite childhood nursery rhyme really did teach me everything I needed to know about life... and it goes a little something like this:
Row row row your boat,
Gently down the steam,
Merrily Merrily Merrily Merrily
Life is but a dream...
Some dream different dreams than you might imagine, but do not attack and destroy their dreams, do not fear their dreams. Their dreams will not break yours, nor can they change your 'reality' – unless you let them.
