Is Joan of Arc the patient saint of Transgender people?
Basically back thin things were reversed. You know how nowadays any guy wearing anything remotely female gets called a fag? well back then the same applied to women. Women wearing mens clothes was actually a bigger taboo than men wearing womens clothes (men did shakespeare plays dressed as women in the 1500s)
Well, it's true that she had short hair and wore man's armor, but I'm sure that was more practical than anything. She certainly didn't seem afraid to own up to her feminine side off the battlefield. If anything, the impression I get from the contemporary quotes and trial excerpts I've read is that she was a very asexual woman.

Not to mention that "men's armor" was the only kind of armor they had in that region during that time.
She wore them because the Guards would have raped her if she wore womans clothes. She actually agreed not to wear mens clothes until this happend. She was accused of relapsing into heresy. So no, not trans. Dumbass.
