Transgender people (trans for short) are those whose gender, meaning their innate mental blueprint of how male or female they are, doesn't match their physical looks and/or the gender they were assigned at birth.
A Crossdressing character whose choice of attire is played for weirdness, for creepiness, for Squick, simply for shock value, or to show that he (and it's virtually always "he") is evil or deranged.
While the look of the Wholesome Crossdresser tends to gloss over the dissonance between genders, this trope often calls attention to it.
When a Baleful Polymorph causes characters to get transformed into another sex though, it's almost always male characters getting stuck with female bodies — in other words, trans men.
Stereotypes and caricatures of trans women in the media can range from heavily masculine-bodied people wearing unflattering budget dresses and wigs, to highly attractive and feminine women whom men fear.
Some transgender people have dysphoria on physical or social levels, and pursue medical means (e.g.hormone replacement, surgery, etc.) to help mitigate this discomfort.Others don't pursue medical treatment for various reasons — for example, because they don't experience discomfort, because transitioning socially is enough for them, or because no available medical options fit their gender.Often, this crossdresser exaggerates Tertiary Sexual Characteristics without bothering to cover up secondary (or primary) ones. Frequently, the unfortunate implication is that crossdressing is, in itself, creepy, but it may simply be one aspect of a character who's creepy.Japanese works tend to play up a few common traits for this character type: a combination of a gaudy outfit, a Noblewoman's Laugh and absolute narcissism.
