analogous to transvestite
coined by psychoanalyst
George Savitzianos. It means a person who dresses and acts to seem exactly like the stereotype
of their gender
because they are scared to admit that there are any parts of them which don't fit the stereotype.
Psychiatrist Louise Kaplan: "Emma Bovary, who acts or dresses exactly like some stereotyped notion of a woman, may be a female homeovestite, a woman who is afraid to openly acknowledge her masculine strivings...The concept of homeovestism, with its implication of gender impersonation, may also be more faithful to what is going on when a woman dresses up to exhibit herself as a valuable sexual commodity than the term exhibitionism."
