Happy Pappy's Day
You never really win an argument when you are a dad and you have a teenage daughter. You might "win" in the moment, but honestly, you've still lost the war. They have so many ways of extracting victory, and that isn't even counting the magical ways that you'll see in caption format.
This is a basic "walk a mile in her shoes" caption, and the picture fit what I was looking to convey. It also makes mention of a simple fact that I've learned over time .. women dress sexy for themselves. If it turns on other people, then that is a bonus. It makes them feel good, sexy, alluring, flirty .. however it is they want to feel. Knowing how damn insecure ALL women are, it makes total sense.
It is amazing how much of what a woman is .. is defined by how she looks. That is why men tend to have one mode of dress, with a weekend look of "comfortably sporty". In the space of one week, a woman can be MANY different people, just by what she is wearing. If she doesn't want to commit to a total look, she can underscore what she's wearing just by a different set of earrings, or heels when wearing jeans.
It is a study in psychology really. I have dressed in drag a few times, but the most pronounced one was Halloween over 10-12 years ago. After about an hour, I REALLY felt different. The heels made me walk with shorter and more tentative strides (even though i walk in heels really well, so says everyone I know. I blame it on the amount of Rocky Horror I did as a teenager.) and I was not used to all the attention I was getting (some was good actually, a friend was apparently admiring my legs before realizing it was ME .. said it made him question his sexuality for a moment) which women must constantly get used to. Not just the "HEY SEXY!" thing, but the scrutiny that women go through 24/7. Carrying around all my important stuff in a bag was a PITA too, as I am used to things being in my pocket. Other than when I've lost my voice for months at a time, I had never felt so vulnerable in my life.
So to all the dads out there .. "DON'T DREAM IT .. BE IT!" We know that you'd LOVE to be the stay at home housewife, even if it was for just one day .. especially if your spouse took you out dancing that night! If not in real life, perhaps in reading a TG story or identifying with a TG caption.
DISCUSSION QUESTION: What 'Rite of Passage' that almost every woman goes through would you most like to experience as a female? There are no wrong answers, but I am just curious. I will give my answer after a few others talk about what they would like to have gone through. I don't wish to "poison the well" with my thoughts, and perhaps someone my persuade me to change my opinion.
