Sample text

Women cross-dressing on the streets of London agitated and confused men such as Harrison, Gascoigne, Riche, and Stubbes, but when the practice appeared in literature it had a different effect— a paradoxical one similar to that described by Woodbridge surrounding the debate about women.

These transgressions had serious consequences. Laura Levine argues that antitheatrical tracts written by men such as The Eidolic Lesbian 43 Stubbes, Stephen Gosson, and William Prynne articulate a fear that men playing female roles on stage risk not only effeminization but actual transformation into women. 72 Following Levine’s theory, if women were imperfect or underdeveloped men then masculine apparel brought them one step closer to becoming men indeed. The anxiety of men like Stubbes over the flexibility of sartorial gender coding demonstrates a desire to order and define not only gendered behavior but also sexual identity and construct a dichotomous sex-gender system from one that remained to some extent polymorphous.

68 He goes on to condemn what he feels is a shocking excess in English apparel in general by comparing England licentiously with Sodom and Gomorrah. Other writings that span a decade in the 1580s provide evidence of the anxiety caused by and hostility directed toward the cross-dressed figure, while the presence of these continuous attacks suggests that the practice enjoyed some popularity. George Gascoigne was one of the first to deride women wearing men’s fashions in the epilogue to his 1576 work entitled The Steele Glas.
