All I’ve ever wanted to know about transvestites, I learned from comedian and Executive Transvestite Eddie Izzard.
My biggest conception? I had always assumed transvestites were gay. Not necessarily so.
Izzard, while displaying a certain penis nonchalance, dates women.
I do not know if a woman who dates a transvestite is a lesbian. It is an interesting question. My guess is probably a failed lesbian.
Izzard makes a distinction between action transvestites (such as himself) and weirdo transvestites (i.e. Edgar J. Hoover)*
The above cross-dresser, whether action or weirdo, is noticeably losing her wig or goes to a very bad hairdresser.
It would be very difficult for a woman to be considered a cross-dresser. Donning a suit has now become so common for women that it must totally suck to be a drag king.
I think she is an executive transvestite. She was overtly flirting with me.
* The fact that Edgar J. Hoover was a cross-dresser is either “an urban legend” or “common knowledge” depending on where you look. Whatever he was and I do not care, this is a man who would have fitted really well in today’s U.S. politics of fear.
