QUOTATION: Cross-dressing

What is the purpose in the Law’s prohibition against a man wearing woman’s clothing? Is it not that the Law would have us be masculine and not be effeminate in either person or actions-- or in thought and word? Rather, it would have the man who devotes himself to the truth to be masculine both in acts of endurance and patience-- in life, conduct, word and discipline.

--St. Clement of Alexandria
