Hello friends! I'm new to this community and BJDs in general. I have one on the way, Bowie, a MNF Shushu, and I am MORE than excited. I have spent (read: wasted) several hours every day perusing these boards, and I've noticed some trends that have made me curious. Why are there so many doll owners who have "male" dolls that are really just girls? They wear girl clothes, they have girl hair and make-up....what makes them boys?! (I mean, they might have a man-part down there, I don't know...); also, I am curious about the boy/boy relationships...it seems to be a huge thing here! I hope no one is offended by my question because I mean no harm by it. I just want to get a better idea about the whole thing and a better understanding of why it's so popular. Thanks everyone.
