"Clothes don't make the man," has a new meaning. Crossdressing from a new perspective. Dr. Rudd is both a concerned professional & the wife of a crossdresser. This gives her perspective something altogether missing in the literature: a crossdresser's wife & a concerned mental health helping professional. She offers a professional's view of crossing gender lines from the inside! Dr. Rudd in this thought provoking book addresses many of the questions asked by the spouses, families, & friends of an estimated ten million crossdressers in the United States & candidly explores the related emotions that range from frustration to elation. This book serves as a major contribution towards the understanding of crossdressing - particularly for the wives, girlfriends, parents & children of heterosexual men who feel compelled to dress as women part of the time in order to express the full gender continuum of their personality. This book presents crossdressing as a positive sociological gender phenomenon that may be partly determined by biological factors, but one which is not regarded as a mental disorder or a sexual perversion.
