Don't you think that most male anime characters have the looks of a woman?
I mean, well, usually they have slender bodies, clean face, bone structure of a woman, and usually where female type clothing, so if you were to crossplay, then I think a woman could play as either man or woman anime characters,.. not that a woman would look like a man of course, but they would look like a woman, like the character... ( :untrust: You are probably so confused now.. :hafha: ) If I were to crossplay, I would not mind it, but I would mind other people's opinions! :lost: I have'nt crossplayed before, and people might question my sexuality, has anybody had their sexuality question by crossplaying? Is'nt crossplaying the same as crossdressing anyway? :chatah:

I've had my sexuality questioned (or, to be more accurate, people have assumed I'm a lesbian) and I've never crossplayed!*laughs* Where I live, if you're more of a tomboy than a girlie girl, I guess it's assumed you don't like boys.

As for whether your sexual orientation will be questioned when you crossplay, I think this leads to a double standard. If you're female, probably not, but if you're male, almost certainly. It's silly and sad, I think, but that's the way things are. Me? I'm always happy to see a boy in a skirt, and I know hetero guys who don't mind dresses and skirts, so I wouldn't jump to the conclusion of male in female attire = gay.

Lady, I see your point, if I did crossplay, I would not know who to choose, although I don't think I would wear a skirt.. so it does'nt leave me much choice (almost every female wheres a skirt in anime I guess). Although my sexuality does'nt really have anything to do with it, I guess I'm Bi-sexual really.
I might be going to Tokyo Anime Expo 2005, (If there is one..) , and if I did go, I would probably go as a moogle, so I guess crossplay is out, unless it is a female moogle, but, has anyone here crossplayed as anyone?

I think almost everyone who visits this section has crossplayed. Here are some threads about sexuality, crossplay definitions, etc. that might help answer your question:
