Wouldn't that get attention either way? "Big-Time Celebrity Not-So-Secret Cross-Dresser" and "Big-Time Celebrity Bizarre Yet Perversely Fascinating Exception To Binary Sexuality" seem equal draws, though I obviously would not be allowed to write those headlines, as I don't grok headline-speak.

I think it depends a bit on how well they pull it off. If nobody recognizes them when they cross dress, then they don't get any tabloid photos... unless they end up being the date of another celebrity when they cross dress. I think.

I'm afraid I'm not entirely up to date on the proper behavior of tabloids.

And do not think that there are not people out there who would feel it appropriate to charge her for such, even if the intent was never for anyone other than a single, particular peer to view it. We are talking about people who would be happy to charge someone for sexual assault on a minor for having consensual sex with someone they are perhaps just a few days older than. We are speaking of people who would charge a gay couple for having consensual sex in their own home with sodomy laws after a police officer enters without a warrant.

Sex is a crime.

Yes of course, which is why I wonder why the guy wasn't charged. Florida already has case law that two minors exchanging naked pictures with each other can be charged with creating and distributing child pornography, so why wasn't that guy?
