The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. ~Deu. 22:5
Cross-dressing is an abomination in the eyes of God. You should be able to tell the difference between genders - male and female. Satan is the one that wants to blur the lines, merge the genders and have men look like women and women look like men, mocking God's creation and distinction of the sexes. Will you be a willing instrument in Satan's hands to mock God? Do you like being mistaken for a man? If not, then why are you trying to look like one? Wouldn't you want to be as far away from looking like a man as possible?
I really like John Wesley's excellent commentary on the above verse:
Now this is forbidden, both for decency sake, that men might not confound those sexes which God hath distinguished, that all appearance of evil might be avoided, such change of garments carrying a manifest sign of effeminacy in the man, of arrogance in the woman, of lightness and petulancy in both; and also to cut off all suspicions and occasions of evil, which this practice opens a wide door to.
Men and women that confound the sexes which God hath distinguished are the norm today. I can't tell you how many times I've mistaken a woman for a man because of her masculine garments. It is so disturbing as well to WONDER just what gender someone is because some make it so you can't even tell without close inspection and then sometimes not even then! That is disgusting, abominable and shouldn't even be heard of among Christians. We should be distinct in dress as God has designed us to be separate genders, we should be ladies and be feminine and putting on a pair of pants only makes the wearer more masculine in look and behavior.
Pants on a woman not only signify an overthrow of man's headship, transgress God's distinction of the sexes but they also cling to the body of a woman immodestly. God commanded us as Christian women to be modest in our apparel and quite frankly splitting up your legs for all to see your *ahem* isn't portraying modesty. Also, most women wear tight pants for what purpose? It sure isn't comfort! You know what its for - its to arouse men, to get men to look at you and thus you just added lasciviousness to your plate of sin all over your choice of garment.
I was reading a book from the 70's on the induction of pant-wearing for women into society. The secular author noted that with the pant garment on a woman came a loss in her femininity and a gain in masculinity. The garment of the pants itself caused a woman to change her behavior, mannerisms and even activities to be more masculine than as before. WOW! Before I made the switch to dresses, I remember how even my behaviors/mannerisms were different when I wore pants. When I had pants on, I would sit differently, walk differently and felt more "loose" as it was - a bit of rebellion in masculinity if you will. When I would put on my dress for church (in the South where I was raised, it was a shame for a woman to walk in God's house in pants), I immediately was more ladylike and feminine. I didn't sit the way I did in pants, walked with more poise and comeliness and it felt more appropriate for a woman and I was just a sinner back then! When I became a Christian, one of the most notable things that my sisters said was that I was so feminine now. God saved me all over!!
Most women today aren't aware they are in rebellion wearing men's pants because it is the "norm" now and so widely accepted. Even Christians have erred in not knowing their Bible and understanding that although God does look on the inner man, he also counts the outer one important! He taught us even about our hair distinctions between male and female in 1 Cor. 11 as it tells that even NATURE teaches us that a man with long hair is a shame! It is a shame to look like a woman for a man or a woman to look like a man! Hardly nothing is shameful to those in this perverted, ungodly, sin-filled society we live in today but there are those who will live holy unto the Lord and set the standard by God's Word! I won't back down and put on a man's garment, I like looking like a woman! I like being feminine and my husband sure 'nuff likes a feminine woman too!
To overthrow your master, your husband, and to usurp authority over men was the meaning of the age old phrase "Who wears the pants?" Pants signified the headship of the man and now woman has those pants literally and has trampled on man's headship and she must deal with the consequences that this confusion has created in society! I say: Give men the pants back! Give them their jobs back and return home and we won't have the mess we have now! Give them their identity back and men will return to being gentlemen and manly! Quit acting, dressing, speaking and behaving like men! Start looking like your gender for a change! You won't be able to help the aurora that you portray when dressed like a woman in this society because it is so against the perverted norm that you will stand out. What is wrong with a dress ladies!? Why is it so repugnant to you to want to put one on? What is really keeping you away from wearing them? Are you afraid you will look like a lady?
Don't be deceived by those who trample on the grace of God by living a life of disobedience, who turn God's commands into advice and live any way they feel like. Heed the Bible and God's order of headship and distinction of the sexes and return to the feminine woman God intended you to be.
