I feel bad titling the topic that. I don't mean to imply a non-girl should not look or give their opinion. Most often I do try to look at a character in sort of this gender/race vacuum. I am a firm believer that these elements do not really shape a person. Obviously the environment and culture shape a person and how the culture treats gender/race can vary. But I think it is needed to remember that there is a step between race/gender, such as culture that has an outcome. Oops, getting off topic. I have a girl and I often think of her as sort of a normal girl. I, not being a girl, suddenly had some doubts that maybe I am mislabeling a few reactions/reasons. Perhaps I am over thinking this. So I would generally like an alternate perspective to mainly vote in on whether I may have made a real mistake or am just over thinking it. Okay, prelude to the issue out of the way. My girl. She is well, I can't see her wearing make-up. Okay, let me explain. It isn't that she has some vow against make-up and obviously I know a lot of girls don't like make-up. That isn't exactly the issue. The issue is, I don't see her even really thinking about boys in that way. To the point I even had her best friend comment on the effect having the following argument. "You need to finally get a boyfriend," best friend said. "Wait, you do realize I have had a boyfriend before," the MC said. "No, you didn't reject that guy. There is a big difference from not rejecting someone and accepting them." If that doesn't explain the point, the friend is commenting on how the MC just said yes not because she wanted too, but rather because she didn't want to hurt his feelings and they never really became emotionally involved. Thinking about my girls history. I think it makes sense. When she was about 14-ish, she did sort of have a traumatic moment which made her kind of anti-social. So, I think that killed the natural part of her that thought about things like "crushes." And by extension, I don't think she ever thinks about making herself look "pretty" for a potential romantic partner. I say this because, I often describe her as looking nice and being a normal girl and liking getting new clothes and picking pieces that look nice. But I see it in the sense of, not wanting to look like a bum, more than wanting to draw the attention of a room. Does all of that make sense? The other thing that it makes me wonder. Her early years. As I said, it is 14 that she became a bit anti-social. That makes me wonder if she was more of the "te-he" kind of girl before then. Obviously, I cannot ask you guys to writer my girls 13 and before years. My point is more this. I didn't see her acting that way, but I am wondering if that was perhaps more because I never saw her acting that way. I was sort of anti-social as a young child and being a boy makes me probably as far away as possible from being able to rate how a normal 13 year old girl reacts. So I am wondering if her being a te-he, talking about the cute boy to her best friend, kind of girl sounds like a needed feature to count her as a normal 13 year old girl, or if I am over thinking the situation. Thanks for all the feedback in advance.
