It was actually very common for boys to be dressed as girls a long time ago. Even when my dad was a kid (he was born in 1934 in Missouri), his mom kept them in dresses until they were a few years old (he was the 5th of 5 boys). Nothing fancy like Oscar's! My dad said he cried when they took his dress away and he had to wear pants. LOL From what I remember, from history classes, it was usually for ease of changing diapers, but some women also went as far as having their hair in ringlets, etc., because they had boys and wanted girls.
