After reading the posts here and elsewhere regarding how to know if one is a crossdresser I am somewhat confused. I'll state my situation then hope others post and share their feelings.
I wear women's underwear, I enjoy the appearance and total comfort wearing many various styles and fabrics in either black or white colors. I wear pantyhose during cooler weather under my clothes and enjoy the comfort and warmth while lounging at home. I wear no other women's type clothing, here's my question; Am I unique in that I am a gay male as well? I have no sexual desire to be with women yet wear their underwear. I feel no guilt in being who I am yet have some confusion regarding my and others identity.

I just think that you enjoy the underwear. I tend to think of a 'cross dresser' as a being that completely takes over the looks/likeness of the opposite gender. Just wearing the undergarments as a better form of comfort does not strike me as you being a cross dresser, only a man who seeks comfort at all costs.

I felt a need to share a recent purchase of very comfortable boyshort pantys. They fit so fine that I hardly realize I have any underwear on. I may be going farther than I should in this post but wanted to post a possitive.

These are very comfortable to wear while lounging at home after work.

A favorite phrase from me; " I enjoy wearing underwear that is sold or listed under signs stating ‘lingerie’ or ‘women’s’ department. Women wear clothes at times that are sold under signs stating 'men's' department… damn signs, they're everywhere!"
