Yes I have been keeping a secret from the crossdressing community as a whole. This post by ValS made me decide it was time to let it out.
At some point I decided it was better left unknown if I had children. For years if anyone on-line ever asked me if I had children I always answered no. There was always a unfounded fear that if my secret was ever found out I would not be allowed to see my daughter.
You have to remember when I was growing up there was no internet to try and search out other like minded people. The only way I knew there were other people like me was seeing them on tv shows like Sally Jessy Raphael where the Corssdresser was painted as a deviant who did not deserve a loving family. Imagine growing up thinking I would never have a loving wife and family due to the fact that I liked to wear woman’s clothes. But along the road somewhere I made the right turns and ended up here with the loving wife and daughter the TV said I would never have.
Some people have asked if I will ever tell my daughter about my dressing, the answer is no. In this day and age kids have enough to worry about let alone keeping a secret about her Dad.
