Transvestism is the desire to dress in the clothes usually associated with the opposite sex.
Transvestism has sometimes been condemnded by the church, quoting the Bible:
- "The women shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment; for all that do so are an abomination unto the Lord thy God."
- Magnus Hirschfeld, Die Transvestiten, Berlin, Pulvermacher, 1910. Quoted in Vern L Bullough, Sex, Society and History, New York: Science History Publications, 1976. Chapter on "Transvestites in the Middle Ages"
- Deuteronomy 22:5
