> "Molly" as a name was (was it not, and by way of contrast to "Moll Flanders"?) widely used as a name for black female slaves, so the term "molly" might (but it's a bit of a stretch from that to "is") although not rooted in mistrelsy still connote casual racism.

Wasn't molly a term referring to a transvestite gay men and that is the reason for the male dancer dressed as a woman? {See Molly Houses for more} So the male dancer is a mockery of them?
