On Hoover being a cross-dresser[edit]

Okay, there have long been rumors that Hoover liked to wear women's clothes.

I've seen two arguments against that claim.

  1. Hoover was an insanely paranoid man who knew that if he was ever caught in drag, he would be ruined.
  2. The main source of the rumor was a woman with an axe to grind.

My personal theory is that the recent movie about Hoover may have it right -- there was a side of Hoover that was both gay and a cross-dresser, but he suppressed that side his whole life. MDB (talk) 15:06, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
