Selective Gender-bending

Although they favour male singers with high voices
and female singers who sound like men,
people from the Middle East
prefer rigidly gender-indicating,
non-androgynous dress
even more than Europeans do.
Varied, interchangeable, comfortable
open-to-choice, unisex apparel
(djellabas, shalwar-kameez, saris,
or for that matter gaily-decorated burqas)
may (distressingly) never come to pass.

Gender-bending is fine.
One can bend and can still return to the original pose.

But, Gender-blender has a tendency to fuck you up.
