Dear Woosy – My husband is a cross dresser

Dear Woosy,

Yesterday when I came home from work early I got the shock of my life. I walked in on ‘Stan,’ my husband of 8 years dressed up in women’s clothing, some of which are mine. He was even wearing panties, heels and makeup! Stan swears to me he isn’t gay and that he dresses in women’s clothing to ‘unwind.’ He also confessed he’s been doing it since he was a teenager. I don’t think he’s gay, but I just don’t understand why he feels the need to dress in drag. What do you think?

Woosy says – I can appreciate how jarring it must have been for you to walk in on your husband and find him dressed up like an extra from The Crying Game.

In your letter you said some of the clothes you caught Stan wearing were yours. Don’t you see how great that is? If you and your husband wear the same size, you can double your wardrobe.

If the two of you go shopping together he’ll actually be able to give you helpful answers to questions you may ask like, ‘Do these look like hooker boots to you?” Your soul mate is also a great shopping partner. Do you realize how lucky you are?

Next Saturday night you and your husband should put on your hottest dresses, get dolled up, and hit the clubs together. If drinking together, clubbing together, and being able to share your husband’s lipstick doesn’t constitute the perfect union then I feel confident in stating that the institution of marriage is dead!
