So I've talked before about how I love manga/anime (manga is superior). Well, I have recruited one of my friends. She is a BAMF and she is reading Naruto. She's on like chapter 60 or so, and she said it was amazing so far. And it is. So, uh, go read Naruto.
Anyway, as a person of gender, it seems that gender is SOMEWHAT important in determining one's course of life. I often wonder what it would be like to have been born a girl--would certainly be a bit easier in some faculties, but then much more difficult in others. For instance, I WOULD NOT have to worry about feeling like a girl, but I WOULD have to worry about how much I eat. Ahh, the conundrums of life.
So what got me started on this thought, you ask? Well listen close, and I'll tell you. I am the middle of three boys that my parents created. Apparently, none of the three of us were quite what the rents ordered: they always wanted a little girl. A while back my older brother remarked on the somewhat odd names that we were born into: he said that I got the shaft. A boy with a girl's name? Who would do such a thing to their child whom they love? Well, my parents did it (practically unwittingly, since "Madison" was not a popular girl's name 18 years ago).
Anyway, I do not feel like a girl in a boy's body. I feel like a boy in a boy's body (or should I say man now?). I simply wonder what it would be like to be a girl. Introversion would be easier. When people see a quiet male, they generally think he is weird, but when they see a quiet female, they just think of her as shy or a book-worm, not some outcast whom nobody likes. Oh gender roles, FOR SHAME!
So I don't quite know where I was going with this. I guess just wandering through some thoughts. It's an interesting idea to delve in dreams, but as the Great ALBUS said, "It does not do to dwell on dreams, Harry, and forget to live." I'm off into the world (of Naruto). What about you?
