I would like to know if the prohibitions on opposite-gender clothing apply to gentiles under the Noahide laws.

    @donief is it? Why would anyone think this prohibition applies to gentiles? Is it one of the seven? The list of 7 is easily found on Google and I don't see it there – Double AA Jul 9 at 0:52

    I agree with @DoubleAA. Presumably it is not one of the Seven Noahide Laws. – ezra Jul 9 at 3:28

    @DoubleAA Rav Nissim Gaon writes in his introduction to Brachos, and he cites Chizkuni In Noach (7:21) That there are many mitzvos which must be kept because they make moral and logical sense even without specific commandment. See same in Moreh Nevuchim 3:17, and sefer chasidim 153. So since it explained in meforshim that the prohibitions on opposite-gender clothing is for the moral reason of seperation of the sexes, it may be that Bnei noach are obligated even if not one of the 7 Seven Noahide Laws. – RibbisRabbiAndMore Jul 9 at 7:26
  • @Double there is the idea אינהו וכל אביזרייהו. – user6591 Jul 13 at 0:21
