Gender Trouble, Why Make It Double?

Scenario A: a woman puts on slacks and sneakers, a metallica t-shirt, no makeup and a baseball cap

Scenario B: a man puts on a skirt and blouse, heels, a little makeup and curly hair

the interesting point is that the male and the female are BOTH "cross-dressing" - however the oddness of a female doing so wore off about 45 years ago.

why are male gender roles SO TIGHTLY controlled and enforced?
