I'd rather Iggy, than Twiggy any day!
I know this picture has been around for a little while, and been commented on lots in other blogs. The caption says it all for me really. I enjoy cross dressing as part of a session, where I'm in control and it's not all about the preening and the pouting in the mirror. I'm far too hands on to be wasting time on that. What I love more than anything else is, when I dress someone in womens underwear and they look so proud to be in it, like they belong. As Iggy says, it's not shameful to be dressed as a woman. When someone can embrace another side of themselves, a side that society as a whole tries to hide, it can be liberating, both for them, and for me. Why should it be shameful to look and act like a woman? Is it because we are inferior? Is it because we don't have some of the same qualities and attributes as the male gender, qualities and attributes that society deems more worthy in a person? Or is it just simply that some men don't feel they look particularly good in womens clothes and it's more about the asthetics than the gender differences? Is it in fact about their own guilt and repression of desires they've long kept secret? I don't mind if it's just about the asthetics....I can work with that, hey I'm a woman and I've more make up and wardrobe tricks than the best Wardrobe Mistress in theatreland. However, working with someone's guilt and repressed sexuality is taking it to another level. I think I'd be happier leaving that one to Ms Pamela Stephenson!
So looking again at Mr Pop, no he's not the best looking model for that dress, or even the handbag. However, he holds himself well and any seasoned model would be impressed with the look of self belief and attitude that old rocker has.
