The part of the problem is, in my opinion, that a "crossdreamer" is not known as a label enough.
There's way too many words to describe it: non-binary, demi-boy/girl, genderfluid, genderqueer...
I also used to think about myself as non-binary but since I started accepting myself, I feel more and more on the masculine side. My personality definitely includes some feminine aspects, but "the base" is a guy.
I think that Ruby Rose coming out helped me a lot. I can relate to her story a lot. But! She is into women only, she has it easier in a sense that there is more diversity in lesbian and gay world as far as the distribution of gender roles in a relationship is considered. And many people don't realize that such gender variance can be found in people who are not perceived as lesbian/gay from the outside (relative to their biological sex).
But again, do people realize that this is not just about dressing up a certain way?
Like, for example I'm (probably) more into men (though a very specific type of them), but I can't even imagine dating a guy who sees me as a female, expects me to feel like one, expects me to like things that women like... Because it makes me highly uncomfortable. To make a comparison: many trans women before coming out marry and have kids. It's different for a FtM trans person. Throughout their life, they usually become even more lonely than MtFs, they never marry, never have kids (I've also read about this in a study by Czech sexuologist whose specialisation is transsexuality). Like, I can tell you, a marriage to a man and motherhood is something I've always perceived as something I don't want to experience (since I was very very young), because it was/is extremely overwhelming for me. The way cis men treat women is, like... another man couldn't stand it at all. But it seems that women genereally like that (which is something I don't understand at all). Honestly, if I was into women, I think it would be so much easier for me. But I'm sure such a topic was discussed million times on the forum.
Also, many people think that if you're not transitioning medically (or you do but only to a certain extent), you're not really trans and you have it easier than transitioning trans people. Which is not true, as I described above and as many of you know.
I think that this is a topic that should be seriously adressed by someone with a certain influence.
It seems to me that many people think that for many of us who are perceived as straight, it is just a kind of fun, just some kind of funky way of dressing up. And it is partly because of the fact that androgynous famous people like Prince, Michael Jackson, Bill Kaulitz, Annie Lennox etc. never adressed that. They made it seem just like an artistic expression, an experiment. And Eddie Izzard, correct me if I'm wrong, it seems to me that most people sees his crossdressing just as a part of his comedian persona.
But I know that for me, and I believe that for many of you too, it is not just art or fashion. It is my truth, my whole life, my real self.
