Montescano prohibits cross-dressing

28 November 2019

The "Prohibition of Cross Dressing and Transvestitism Act" was unanimously approved by 3 votes and later ratified by His Serene Highness Sovereign Prince Dionisiy I, the act prohibits cross-dressing and condemns transvestitism. Cross-dressing and transvestitism, as defined in the law and popular meaning, refers to an individual dressing in clothing of the opposite gender.

The act establishes that it is following Biblical principles, specifically Deuteronomy 22:5 which states “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God" (King James Version translation). It establishes a punishment of fining for single violations of the law and exile for multiple violations of the law. Leniency is given to those with mental illness, as they are not responsible for their own actions. The act also allows unisex clothing as they are often developed for functionality.
