      [Journal Entry] Girl as a Boy

      I was walking around Bastion yesterday (in Khrysalis) and I met a new friend! We both were waiting while sitting at a bench near the pet vendor for a friend, and he started conversation with me. He was really nice. His outfit was interesting. He was wearing some sort of Zafarian mask. It had to be stitched because there was no way that he was wearing a mask from Zafaria with Zafaria stats in Khrysalis, as a level 90+ wizard! He had kind of a high-pitched tone in in his voice so I asked him how old he was (assuming he was young, with such a high-sounding voice). He said 19. When he realized why I asked him that question, he explained to me that he was a girl and that he wore the mask to hide it from others. So, behold, "he" was actually a "she"! I was too afraid to ask her "why," but eventually she told me without me having to ask. She said that she pretends to be a boy to gain respect from others. After she said that, my friend (who I had been waiting for) arrived, so we left her sitting there.

      That encounter stuck with me throughout the day. I couldn't stop thinking about her! How bold of a gesture to pretend to be a boy. I applauded her in my head for it. But then I thought to myself that I've actually had the opposite experience as a girl in the Spiral. Most people treat me with kindness... if anything, I've witnessed more disrespect that others have expressed toward boys than me. I wondered if she had a different experience if she had been expressing herself as a girl.

      This journal entry has nothing to do with gender roles. I just thought that encounter was unique.

      I guess you never know who's under that mask! (:

      Cool Re: [Journal Entry] Girl as a Boy

      A good rule of thumb to live by is to never assume someone's pronouns! Thank you for sharing this story, it was a good read.
