I Don't Want to Be a Man (1918)
That sets Ossi's teeth on edge and she decides to pose as a man for an evening out. During her time as a cross dresser she discovers that there are a number of downsides to the cultural expectations of men. She decides that in the end she is happier with her life as a woman. In the meantime, she has a little tryst with her guardian--we know and Ossi knows that she is actually a woman, but the guardian does not know that the man he thinks he is kissing is actually a woman. Very risque indeed.
