Long before the TIM apocalypse, there was the "old-fashioned" variety of crossdressing. But it's not like that's any more acceptable than what we've currently been seeing. And yes, this includes drag queens.

Even if it was being "kept in private"... we had men trying on their partners' clothes, yes, and it's a fetish. It's all rooted in degenerate behavior, and it's all womanface, regardless of whether the man is actually denying physical facts or not. And quite understandably, the women got creeped out, because the men were forcing them to participate in their fetishes. No one believes that it's okay to beat your wife "as long as nobody else knows."

Likewise, both in the past and today, every time you're tempted to make an "exception to the rule" or something for "one of the nice TIMs" or convenience, or even fear of losing employment etc., consider all the victimized women, and children, who have to pay the price. Is that fair?

Call me bigoted or intolerant. But while it almost never works like that the other way around, whenever men put on women's clothing, it's pretty much guaranteed to be for the cheap sexual thrills.

As has been mentioned here, I don't think the sexualization of women is particular to Western culture. Unfortunately, misogyny is universal, and we must work from a variety of different cultural perspectives in order to mitigate it.

I'm not trying to imply those cultures do not have misogyny. My point in bringing that up, is that clothes are not inherently sexed. There is a sexual identity being forced onto those clothing by men. What is the difference between a man putting on a toga vs putting on a sundress he found out at the thrift store? I am not bothered by crossdressing, I am bothered by the fact that men put on the latter option, and find a sexual thrill in it. There's not much difference between the two clothing items at all, they're functionally the same. The man finds sexual thrill out of the second option because he has built this construct into it that he finds is inherent to it.
