So, I have a lot of questions but let me start with a few simple ones. And what makes a skirt or make up female? When John Hamm wears make up is he appropriating gender? When Marc Jacobs wears a skirt is he appropriating gender?

When John Hamm wears makeup - no, it isn’t appropriation because he’s wearing masculine makeup and you can’t even tell he’s wearing any. If he was wearing noticeable makeup (like pink lipstick and black eyeliners, etc) then that would be appropriation.

When Marc Jacobs wears a skirt - Yes! That is appropriation! I’ve seen photos of him in a pink dress before, it looks like he’s making fun of the female gender. However, he also wears kilts - kilts are not ‘skirts’, they’re not appropriation (unless you’re not Scottish, obviously).

So you're saying it's not appropriation as long as they were ever female? Because I still fell like if buck angel or chaz bono went prancing around onstage parodying women that it would still be incredibly offensive.

If they’re transgender men then yes, I guess it is offensive.

However, if they only cross dress as men, maybe it isn’t. I’m not sure actually. I don’t feel qualified to answer this question, I don’t know much about trans-people. I guess passing privilege comes into it. If they live as a man they will have male privilege….

I started this Tumblr to shame men who cross dress as women, such as drag queens, things like this barely crossed my mind. But I see why I should research into it more, it does link with the theme of this blog!

I would to hear your input though. xx

OMG. NO.
Can you imagine the hate this would get if this was a whitey saying “Desi people, I don’t care if you’re brown. I look hotter in a Indian clothes and bindis than you!” Why should this be treated like a different situation? 
Most of the comments on this photo were of other cross dressing men APPLAUDING him and AGREEING. They were saying most drag queens are more beautiful than women!
When a female commented and said his ego was ugly, she got slammed for being a hater. WHAT IS THIS WORLD?

Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people.” – Lori

Have you heard of that play "trAnnie"? It's a perfect example of how drag queens hurt all women including trans women.

Smh, no I haven’t heard of that. Not sure if I want to look it up and knock 4 years off my life from stress and annoyance. 

Thanks for telling me about this though. I probably should look it up tbh. xx

Some men just feel more comfortable in female* clothing, just as some women feel more comfortable in male* clothing. I'm biologically female and mostly female presenting, but feel much more comfortable in male* clothes and a binder than I do in female* clothing, how is it different the other way round?

Because men have not being oppressed for thousands of years….. or ever.

You can not appropriate the dominant, females dressing male is not appropriation.

I love the “bad, unrelated analogy” one. I mean, the level of total obliviousness these people have to their own conduct. The SJW’s and the feminists, I mean. That they want to call other people’s analogies bad. I mean, have you fuckers ever even skimmed the fucking spoon post?
