What is cross dressing?
Cross dressing means wearing clothes, make-up, accessories, and prosthetics to mimic the appearance of the opposite sex. To change your voice and adopting "typically" masculine or feminine ttraits and body language can also be part of this.
What is the difference between cross dressing, transvestism and transgender ?
Cross dressing is sometimes confused with transvestism. Previously, the words transvestite and crossdresser were often used interchangeably. Some men did not agree with the term transvestite because of the sexual association, therefore they started calling themselves "crossdressers". A transvestite often does not feel the need to actually have his or her body transformed into the opposite sex, unlike a transgender person. Cross dressers usually like to dress up once in a while, sometimes limited to just a few items of clothing.
