These who tried to infiltrate as female refugees:

Al-Qaeda fighters have done this too.

Or perhaps WE in the West should get the Darwin Award, for letting so many others get through.

Jordan already told us that the ISIS terrorists would get through the refugee system and head to the West by various means.

What, are you denying their transgender expression?

Lol. Is that what they were doing … expressing?

Looks more like they were exiting the area.

Reminds me of the mom from Life of Brian.

I wonder if the Iraqi government will pay for their gender reassignment proceedures?

Actually, I understand that in Shia Islam, the decisionmakers have decided that sex reassignment surgery is the 'cure' for being gay. In Iran, if you're a man and gay, it's 'go to jail, or go to hospital'. Even if you don't want to be a woman.

So wouldn't be surprised to see something similar in Iraq soon.

Yikes. I'm not even going to speculate on the outcome of THAT particular endeavor… *shivers* huh?

Am I allowed to say that the lady in the top right is rather ugly?

Few could disagree.

I think old Jeff Davis looked better in his wife's dress, escaping from Union soldiers:

Admittedly he was a lighter hand with make up than the Isis chap.

Now you have me shuddering too.

We already know how brutal and crude female genital mutilation procedures can be among many of their brethren. Some of them look like they were performed by blind men with absolutely no knowledge about female anatomy or the purpose of monthly cycles, and using old razors or worse, with no concern about the immediate and long term suffering the victim will suffer for decades.

Wait. What am I saying? Of course, that's it. That's exactly how most of those mutilations are done!

Apart from Jeff Davison, cross dressing was not unknown during the ACW.
Many female Confederate spies would don breeches to sneak through enemy lines.

However, less worthy, are the many men who dressed as women to avoid conscription.

There's an amusing photo of Union general Lyon who donned women's clothes to spy on his rebel adversaries:

You'd think the beard might be a give away?

I wonder how many made it through though?

Ochoin, also interesting during the ACW are the numbers
of women dressing as men and serving in the ranks !

When all you see as a lone man without prospects are women in burqas, and you join the jihad…
Well, the details are left to the imagination.

There are accounts of Colonials escaping from the British in women's garb during the AWI as well.

Cross dressing for various purposes is by no means new though the OP seems to think it novel.


The photos provided, *if* genuine, only show those who were ham fisted. I'm sure it was a ruse used by several to escape.
