Hi All,

I live in Europe, I am male but live my life completely as woman, I like to know can I get in troubles when by example a policeman likes to see my driverslicense , is it allowed by law in Florida to be dressed as very passable !! woman ? or is there a possibilty that I can get troubles with a policeman and / or the law ?

I don't like troubles at all and Florida is my favourite place on earth, hopefully someone can give me an answer, thanks in advance !

There is always the posibility of getting in trouble with the law, but not for crossdressing. So far as I know, there isn't a law on what clothes we can or can't wear. Witness women wearing blue jeans, T-shirts and work boots, considered "men's" clothing for so long. The only real problem is when you have to use the bathroom. Many/most places have laws against men in women's bathrooms and vice versa. Here is where it gets interesting. The general rule for CD or "T" girls is use the bathroom that is most appropriate for your looks. Get in, get out and don't dally around. If you need to adjust your make-up, do it somewhere else so you don't give the impression of "lurking". If you have an encounter with a police officer and you need to show your license, do so. If the question of your gender comes up, don't lie, be honest and polite. I have been stopped (I'm a pre-op transgender female so my license shows an "M" for sex). I got looks, but no questions. My most interesting police was in Mexico. Now that was scary as "el policia" didn't stop us for a traffic infraction but was looking for a blonde date!!! Personally, I don't think that you will have any problems at all. Just follow the law, be youself and have fun!

AS I said before, basically NO is the answer, but there are laws forbidding males in females restrooms and vice versa, so you just need to research the laws in your area. If you are having issues with "wanting to" but not being able to, then look for a support group in your area. These folks can help you work through the issues you are dealing with. Teh ones in my area don't care how or if you come "dressed" to the meetings.

There is no law against crossdressing, anywhere, unless it is for criminal deception (bank robbery, escape from a police warrant, etc). IF you have an interaction with a police officer, be honest, be upfront and don't lie. Use the bathroom that is appropriate for the way you dress, get in, get out. Just be you!

When I stopped trying to live like a man, I was incredibly afraid of what would happen. It's such a difficult time. I don't know if this will help or not, but what I found is that the majority of people don't care, and the rest were actually supportive. There were only a few bad apples, and they were usually easy to avoid with common sense.

And like Rikki said, a support group could help at first, depending on your personality.

Very very best wishes to you in your life!

p.s. Hi Rikki!

Not only I'm I a CD/T-Girl but a lawyer of over 20 years practice in Maine---the answer is no, not only can't you be arrested but Maine law protects us from discrimination based on "Gender expression"

In response to MsJanessa from Maine; the law is one thing, but intolerant people are another, and when it comes to intolerance, Mainers take the cake. As a student at UMaine I began crossdressing very mildly and barely noticeably, but employees at the university immediately began giving me dirty looks, whistling behind my back, and treating me rudely when I made purchases. I found it quite disconcerting that an institutution which preaches tolerance and respect for diversity officially is really a haven for immature, imbecilic, inbred KKK types. The student population reacted the same as the employees. And, no administrators wanted to hear about it.
I'm sure Maine isn't the only state living in "deliverance" mode, and crossdressers need to realize that what is lawful isn't necessarily safe.

Isn't it great to feel the wind whisping up a short dress and tickling those exciting bikini panties? Bare shoulder blouses, halter tops, and sun dresses add more freedom of sensation, too.
Shopping was at first very intimidating, and reactions tended to be negative, but a JC Penny outlet near a liberal liberal arts college had quite thrilled student sales attendants smiling as I tried to figure out what size OneStepUP halters to buy. Summer clothes are easier for broad shoulders to fit into. I wanted a half length jean jacket but even XXXL sizes won't work. I suppose a tropical location is best for my wants. Internet searches for CD friendly beaches have proven hopeless, but knowing it is legal to stroll and swim in micro coverage bikinis and one pieces I simply brave baring as much as possible on summer days. I also lie to wear super short tennis dresses while cycling. Is it wrong to have such needs? I don't want to be a girl, just enjoy their freedom in dress. Surprisingly, many women appreciate it.

A lot depends on where you go dressed---one would like to think that the state's largest university(I'm assuming you meant University of Maine at Orono and not Presque Isle or Fort Kent) would be more tolerant---My dressing has usually been in the evenings in Portland or Augusta at TG friendly clubs but I have walked into the super walmart in Newport(just 26 miles south of Bangor) in the middle of the afternoon in full drag wig and make up and actually made some purchses---got a couple of strange looks out of 100 people in the store but nobody said a word---all it usually takes is lots of self confidence.
