Yeah, no. Transvestites do not have a recent history of hating women and mocking them to an exclusively male audience because they wouldn't even let a woman in to make fun of women.
That being said, European nations have a very long history of using blackface in cultural events with no intent of denigration, which is now questioned harshly due to the globalization of American preconceptions on race through social media.
Then again, there are technically enough black people around to draft them instead of a stand-in.
