the History of... crossdressing
-----written in Quake era-----
in early versions of CTF, players could choose whatever shirt color they wanted. a crossdresser is a person who is on the blue team (wears blue pants), but wears a red shirt (or versa vice). crossdressing was particularly annoying knee-deep in the dead err water, when only a player's shirt is visible.
      later ctf versions show the pants color more prominently on the shirt, thanks to grey_ghost's custom ctf skin. as of version 4.1, CTF disallows cross dressing.

-----current-----
      Quake II CTF does not allow crossdressing at all, since players wear either a blue skin or a red skin.
