What if the character simply is a crossdresser who also happens to be evil? I mean, his/her crossdressing habit is never shown as creepy or unsettling, it's just there and it's totally unrelated with the character's morality. How is that one called? Does "Creepy Crossdresser" always have to be "He dresses like a woman because he's EVIL!"?

Part of a general re-org of Crossdresser and subtropes. The idea is that pretty much every example should fall under Wholesome Crossdresser or Creepy Crossdresser. The rename allows examples of crossdressers who are presented as weird, creepy, squicky, etc., even if they aren't necessarily evil or "villainous."

So we are saying that a crossdresser cannot be ugly and wholesome? That seems... odd. Now it would appear that we would have to put Tokyo Godfathers' Hana in with Creepy Crossdresser despite the character's almost saintly qualities.... I think we need to reassess this change and what it really accomplishes at all...

Does Marilyn Manson count under Real Life? He certainly did it for shock value (not sure if he still does it).

I reverted the Goering examples to "depicted as" a transvestite. As far as I can determine, there's no genuine evidence that he was anything of the sort in Real Life - even less reason to think he was than the (also spurious) stuff said about J. Edgar Hoover. He was a flamboyant guy who liked flashy, ridiculous-looking military uniforms, but that's about as far as he went.
