A man in a dress is a man in a dress
A man in heels and make up is a man in heels and make up
A man who has plastic surgery is a man who has had plastic surgery
A man who steals his daughters clothes to indulge his fantasies is a man, a creepy pervy man
A man with any sort of fetish about the trappings of social “femininity” is a man with a fetish
A delusional man, still a man
None of these things make him a “hero”, or “brave” and they certainly don’t make him a woman.
