drab adj. wearing men’s clothing; dressed as a boy. Also n. Editorial Note: This term can apply to women, but it applies especially to cross-dressing or transvestite men who see traditional male clothing as drab, ‘charmless; boring.’ The common explanation of drag in the 1996 citation is a backronym, a fanciful initialism made after the word drag ‘feminine attire worn by a man’ already existed.
