    The Artist D comments today on the urgent need our society has to give everyone a single, “real” identity. When people ask The Artist what her “real” name is they just can’t wrap their brains around it being a single letter. Now Facebook has begun to demand “Your papers, please!” and to The Artist D that looks like there is less room for multiple identities than before. How will that affect us?

    Our young crossdresser, Chanelle, has words of advice today about how to meet a woman through online dating sites. Funny, but the best piece of the advice she offers is “honesty is the best policy.” It’s not impossible to meet someone who is into all of you, including your desire to dress up. You may not find her right away but if you follow some of Chanelle’s advice you just might meet her. Dating advice from a 20-something? As they say, “out of the mouths of babes.”
