Crossdressing With Dignity:
Case for Transcending Gender Lines
by Peggy J. Rudd, Ed.D
1990, PM Publishers - 162 Pages soft - ISBN 0-9626762-6-8

From the Cover

The Scottish male wears a kilt, but is society ready for men who openly express femininity? This is the question that was asked in a survey used as the basis for this book. Can a man transcend gender lines and maintain his own sense of self-worth and dignity?

From an early age boys are taught to follow stereotypes of maleness. When inner desire to express femininity exerts a greater force that desire to live up to the appropriate image for masculinity, conflict may develop. This provocative book addresses these conflicts and provides solutions.
