"Hic Mulier" (Latin: This [manlike] Woman - hic being the masculine form of the demonstrative pronoun jokingly applied to the feminine noun) is the name of a pamphlet published in 1620 in England that condemned transvestitism. Women wearing men's apparel was becoming increasingly common in that period, causing concern to the pamphleteer and other social conservatives. The pamphlet argued that transvestitism was an affront to nature, The Bible, the Great chain of being, and society.
