But the answers I am giving to the OP assume they care about facts. I am not the OP and thus don't know if they just wanted to smugly make some post that doesn't care about facts so they can pretend the left is just hypocrites. IF the latter is true then I am sorry for busting into your thread.
The history of both? Drag has historically celebrated women.
And what you are calling drag is just Drag Queens [dressing up like women, usually done by men], when Real Drag has a history of Drag Kings[dressing up as men usually done by women].
While the History of blackface is that it is used to both make fun of actual dark skinned folk, and to keep them out of playing black roles.
...but even blackface isn't that simple. Originally, blackface by minstrels was more of a homage than anything derogatory - obviously this changed though.
So given that minstrels originally used it in a positive way, are genuine minstrels racist for using it? (i don't mean people that dress up as minstrels for fancy dress or whatever).
You mention womanface, but what about women dressing up as men? For example, girls playing Peter Pan (which often happens on stage).
Either it is all offensive or non of it is offensive...
...otherwise you get the current situation that some is offensive but we make rules for others..........confusing, no?
Personally i don't care about the offensive aspect - to pretty much anything. "Sticks and Stones" and all that.
