I would just like to say that crossdressing males come from all walks of life. Many of them are married with families and their needs can be somewhat restricted, especially if other family members do not have the same understanding. In many cases, the crossdressing male can start at a young age, possibly an innocent game or something heard or seen may spark the interest.
The difference is that the true crossdresser, continues his "interest" throughout his life. Many crossdressers feel guilty, due to the fact that crossdressing is generally shunned throughout society. They can even go as far as getting rid of all their "girlish" items in the hope that they will be cured and start a clean slate. This is usually short lived and before long, they are back out there shopping for more things. If it keeps up like that, they will eventually find themselves losing money from buying all of the items, each time they have a change of heart.
Possibly, the best way it to just keep everything and lock it away until it is needed again. Trying to give it all up completely may work for awhile, but eventually the need returns and ignoring it is just next to impossible.
Crossdressing itself is usually only accepted by the general public, when it is an act on stage or similar. Some crossdressers are fortunate enough to have an understanding partner, who will help them when needed. These are the lucky ones.
Please try to be as understanding to these people as possible. Most of them are definitely not bad and all they just need is a little acceptance.
Another peaceful thought from Roberta.
