Men's Dress Worn By Women

To be fair to Telemaque's side, there is indeed a difference, but it's really subtle and most 21st century Americans wouldn't notice. St. Joseph is wearing what's basically a Roman toga, a large piece of fabric that's draped over one shoulder. The only women who wore togas in Roman times were prostitutes.

Mary is wearing something that vaguely corresponds to the Roman stola and palla, hanging off both of her arms. Vaguely.

Our Lord Christ is wearing a tunic which, admittedly, is quite androgynous. Ancients weren't too concerned with male/female distinctions among small children, although a Roman boy's tunic would be decided more masculine than what the holy card has.

That being said, the historical Holy Family wouldn't have worn Roman garb because they weren't citizens and thus not even allowed to wear it. Not that they would have wanted to, anyway.

A more recent example of more androgynous tunics on boys, by the way...
