Agreed. The term transvestite meant essentially the same here, but it is really not used here anymore.
However, for me, I always get a kick out of it when Eddie Izzard called the persona from the stage act as an “Executive Transvestite”. Definitely a snappy dresser!
Also, thanks for completing your Profile page!
I see it more as a sexual term really, more for people who enjoy the sexual appeal which is a lot more subtle to how I feel inside.
Of course we have celebrity’s Dame Edna, as you said Eddie Izzard, even Rocky Horror as a prime example of honourary TS that made TS fashionable. But yet again all of which were very much sex appeal based and not gender based.
Whilst I enjoy what they have done to help LGBTV…ETC (So many letters these days) I also think the public has also been a little misled as to what they think about when it comes to people with gender related conditions.
(My personal opinion, please don’t shoot me 🥺)
