I wonder if there’s a trans man in RuPaul’s drag race. Wouldn’t that be something? A woman who goes through cosmetic surgery to be a man and then makes a living dressing like a woman.

I've never seen RuPaul's Drag Race, or Ant and Dec's performance, and I find the idea of child drag events very creepy and suspect.
I wonder if there is a nuanced distinction, however: for example, my daughter, wife and mum all love the traditional drag performances in Christmas pantomimes - which, if anything, are reminders of the historical chauvinism which prevented women from performing on stage.

Yes I had thought of panto. In contrast to drag, I've always loved that cross-dressing side of it. I think you can make a distinction. Everyone knows it's fun. But it is a tricky old business.
