Because a macho looking woman kicking your ass wouldn't be fun. But a man in a tight dress and heels probably couldn't catch you.

Usually when men wear women's clothing, everyone is drunk. When everyone is drunk, everything is funny. Take away the alcohol and men wearing women's clothes is freaky.

In general modern womens clothes have been designed to please the man. Not for element protetion with style incorporated as the mens clothes have been. So unless a man has issues he does not look good in a bikini or skimpy dress with high heels as this would go against the stigma. On the other hand a sexy woman produces a visual pleasure in mens clothes because men visualize her as their fantasy having the womens clothes design (designed to impress) already impressed in the mans mind.

There is not a better medium than sailing a large, old, magnificent vessel via the Windjammer fleet in the Caribbean. Add to this a sudden challenge of getting on a costume revealing your secret self in the guise of an occupation starting wit the letter "P". (Boat's name was the "Polynesia".)
Helping our onboard male shipmates dress in our neglegees was a real boon. We used the round life rings for their larger chests and taped Nestle kisses for the imagined nipple effect underneath the clothing.
Putting on their requisite makeup was also great fun and the fellows were good sports.
They were "prostitutes", I as a pirate. (This was in 1995-when the word 'pirate' had a better connotation....) GREAT PARTY!

Just three years ago we were on our honeymoon on the Yankee Clipper of Windjammer. We had three letters to choose from, B, P, (and I forgot). Being Becky and Bob, we dressed as each other. Bob, in my bikini top and short skirt entertained everywone and won a prize and I just looked frumpy--nothing funny about me in a t-shirt and too-big khaki shorts. Fully supporting the theory.

Women constantly strive to be like men, (Why????) so dressing like one is not funny, just forward-thinking. But men have no interest in being like women. It's beneath them. (Why??? I couldn't say. Women are wonderful in their own ways.)

women in men's clothes look totally unfeminine and is the same thing as a men wearing a dress.
