Once upon a time, I got an inexplicable pleasure from picking female characters to play in video games. At the time I had no idea why, but it just felt *right*. I tended to hide it or make excuses about it if someone else found out.
Yesterday, I picked up my first video game in more than two years. (This length of time is relevant cause I didn’t live as Sophia two years ago). The game: Pokémon Black.
At the beginning of the game, it asks you the familiar question: “Are you a boy or a girl?”
In a rush of excitement I selected “girl”. Hooray, I can be a girl!!
Then I remembered that I always am a girl these days!
