The colors of the 1920’s weren’t the colors of today. Today’s women had to compete in a competitive marketplace. A woman, even in the 1920’s, had to look different from other women for a man to be attracted.
In many cases, women just had to try different color shades – some that didn’t match their hair color. Women in the 1920’s wore hats, jackets, gowns and dresses and that’s how a man could identify her. And not a woman just had to try different shades.
Was it acceptable for men to want to dress up as a woman?
That was not acceptable for women, and not just for girls. It certainly wasn’t acceptable for men.
Women in the 1920’s didn’t have a choice about who they wanted to associate with – that would have been considered sexual harassment.
Did you ever be harassed, mistreated, discriminated against or physically harmed for your gender, sexual orientation or color?
My biggest complaint about my job was not about sexual harassment because you can’t harass a person for their opinion. It’s the treatment that you receive, and the effect on your self-esteem is real.
I can tell you that you have done some things because you were discriminated. I feel that I had my dress and my uniform pulled in two different times. They didn’t want it to look like a white man had gone over to the black side, and they didn’t want it to look like a black woman had gone over to the white side. They even pulled my uniform in a way that I wouldn’t do today. I felt that they were trying to humiliate me.
I have heard many stories from other women that they had people try to dress them down for their gender or sexual, race, nationality, religion or political views. I don’t think you’re being overly sensitive. You can’t expect other people to behave in your way. I think that’s one of the things that bothers me most, that people aren’t treated more fairly.

Don’t even start with that. Your parents never told you anything about it.
The “Frog” was one of the first cartoons produced on the Family Computer System. It featured a frog who appeared to have a mind of a child and ate things and ate them, and it was later adapted into a short-lived cartoon series, the Frog Show.
