That’s a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson, a 19th-century essayist and poet—who besides having a really cool name was raised exclusively by his mother and other the women in his family. So he surely knows whereof he speaks when it comes to mothers and sons. There’s no indication the man was ever a cross-dresser (and I’m NOT saying he was), but regardless those of us who are so afflicted can surely relate to the sentiment. Here’s my personal take on the matter. Enjoy!
