In this fourth part of my series about sissies and humiliation I want to stress the idea that sissies can be considered courageous for inviting and enduring humiliation. I want to point out how this courage on the part of sissies belies one of the most common usages of the word "sissy."
The first definition of "sissy" in my dictionary is "an effeminate boy or man." Fair enough, however another definition is "a timid or cowardly person." My view is that for the sissy to be herself, that is "an effeminate male," especially in public, she can't be timid or cowardly.
It takes a certain amount of nerve for a male to shop openly in the lingerie section of a department store because, as I have pointed out, everyone knows the panties are for you. Somebody might laugh at you. It takes even more nerve to openly shop for feminine clothes like dresses, skirts, blouses, etc. Especially if you accept assistance from the sales staff or ask to try things on. They might talk about you behind your back. In fact, they almost certainly will. True, these activities are low risk from a physical standpoint, but there is a high risk of being embarrassed, but that is still risk. Facing risk is not something a "timid or cowardly person" does.
And sissies might risk humiliation in an endless number of other ways and to many different degrees. How about publicly wearing a bra under a t-shirt? What about a doctor visit when you decide to be yourself and wear panties? Or, more seriously, telling your wife what was, up to that point, your secret? Now that takes nerve. These are good things from the important standpoint of publicizing the existence of sissies and of living your life, and they all take varying amounts of courage.
Being a sissy is generally not a choice, some males are just not cut out to be "real men." Some sissies think they are real men until an enlightened and enlightening woman exposes their true self for them. But are you really a sissy unless someone else sees you as a sissy? I am not sure that you are. I think the more that other people see you and realize that you are a sissy, the more of a sissy you are. And allowing people to see that you are a sissy takes courage. Therefore, being an effeminate male is not for the timid or cowardly.
In other words, being a sissy is not for sissies!
I think I have one more entry left in the "Humiliation and the Sissy" series, a few loose ends to tie up. Until next time, let me know of any other typical examples of sissy courage that you might think of, or of examples of courage in your own life of which you are especially proud. And until next time, thanks for reading!
