Hopefully this is in the right forum. So I was chatting with my suster the other day about BJD's and I showed her a picture of one of the doll models I was drooling over. He happened to be in a lovely skirt and dress at the time. She nodded and told me she was lovely which I immediantly corrected and added that some people found it highly annoying and offensive when people make mistakes and continually do call these males females. the conversation; s= sister m = me s: That's stupid to get so annoyed though! m: Why? Their character happens to be a bit girly, so what? s: Yeah but they're intentionally dressing their dolls to look female. What else is the rest of the world meant to think? They will make a normal assumption about what the world has taught them, girls wear dresses and guys don't. Are you telling me they're getting up them for common sense? m: No. I mean once is ok but some people continue to say they're girlies. These people are having their dolls questioned daily about their gender, how annoying is that? s: Well shouldn't they expect that? Kinda comes with the territory? They knew what people would say and ask and if it's so annoying why do it at all? If they choose to make their doll all feminine and stuff they knew what they're getting into, they haven no right to complain and get all up tight. m: @.@ s: 'Cause basically all I'm hearing is that they're angry because people are convinced something in a dress is a girl. Damn that is stupid *sarcasm + eye roll, walks away* So yeah, I didn't agree with her 100% but I could see her point. It seemed a bit...true but off the mark. I mean, they're your babies, it's nerve wracking to have to constantly correct people and bat away their teasings! I just want to see what other people's opinion on this view is. Do you think girly male owners have a right to complain? Don't they? Where does the line stop when it comes to feeling offended over something like this?
