Crimebuster Meets He She

Gender Outlaws

This would’ve appeared in an issue of Boy Comics. A comic book that I used to collect. I never had this issue and now that I see this splash I sure wish I had.

Charles Biro who oeversaw Boy Comics when from being ond othe most lurid men in comics to one of the most wholesome. A position he seemed happy with.

But in those damnable days there was zero tolerance for atypical gender. I have no idea how Biro would’ve presented this story of an ambiguous, harshly androgynous criminal.

Transvestite Model (Transvestia)


The presentation of transvestism is problematic for me.

Too often sexploitation used an image of a woman and added the word transvestite. Not that rendering males as attractive - since that is what readers would want to see - faux females isn’t something artists generally know how to do.

I’m not fond of chicks with dicks photographs. There’s nothing wrong with it aesthetically. But those images are generally used exploitatively. And crossdressers mostly want to present femaleness successfully. (None of that applies to the rare person who wants to present as hermaphroditic.
