Dr. Judith Butler, Ph.D. -- UC Berkeley, comparative literature, gender theory.
Butler has a great deal to say about stereotypes, "patriarchal hegemonic hetero-normative dyad" . . .
I pretty much present like this, except longer hair, earrings. At 68 these days, the androgens are slowing down, and I look gender ambiguous to some degree.
April . . .
Your presentation is seamless. You look -- seamless -- very well carried off. I watched the video, and nobody gets "clocked." That said, let me make an observation here:
Your "before" photos suggest that you're aged mid 60's. Presentation, seamlessly presented, has April looking in her late 30's. And this is a "club outing" sort of look/style, accessories a bit over the top for out on the street, everyday wear. This an observation, not ridicule/criticism.
On occaision when I do "full drag femme" -- I'm inclined to wear "younger styles" because that's what I find attractive. That's what I find attractive in women -- and I'm a hetero-sexual male, 68 yrs old. Cis F women have noted that when I present as such, the features that "clock" me as male are that I'm not dressed my age. I'm a 68 yr. old male wearing fashion intended for and having details specific to women in their mid 30's. When I do "68 yr old matron" presentation everything becomes "credible." The downside is that this matron is not who I want to be.
That said, Blanchard's "fetish" issue comes up here. A fetish is the focus of interest/intent upon an obect. Let's drop the "value judgement" issue about the term "fetish" and instead look at how "fetish" becomes an object of motivation for a subject that desires to assume or integrate said object into one's personal ID presentation. Personally, I can assume the ID of a woman in her mid 40's. This presentation takes a great deal of time, effort, and thought. And when we're all done (No HRT, no surgery), I still look "like a man in a dress." It works for me in the dark, if I don't interact face-to-face with people.
OTOH -- I dress like Judith Bulter every day, without affectation, and without the intention of "gender crossing." I'm dressed appropriate to my every-day social functions. The attire is functional, pragmatic, integrated. I appear somewhat gender ambiguous, but mostly I look like I'm 68 yrs old, and I'm not in costume. This latter presentation is not the object of my desire, but it IS nonetheless authentic, integrated, and un-affected, un-self-conscious. It's me, not an alter ID.
