That’s what I was thinking when Sulla was asking about legs….

I thought she was trying to open the conversation to ask to change body parts to help her transition. During puberty, many cis girls (and probably trans girls who get hormones early) have really long legs when they hit 11-16. Most cis women (and likely trans women who transition early enough) have proportionately longer legs than cis men. I’m about a foot smaller than my husband, and our legs are the same length.

I’m assuming she wants thicker and more feminine legs, and her arms/shoulders to stop getting bigger.

Not sure how certain she is yet about the feeling of it being off being a gender thing, but if that’s come into focus for her, it’s possible she’s trying not to give it away.

February 2021 – her birthday’s in April), and the change happened on her 13th birthday (though it’s ‘Optimal’ that makes this clearer than anything else). Brendan’s rounding up a little.

I was wondering if it was something to do with “puberty,” but the idea that she wants to get older without experiencing the full-body changes of puberty explains it perfectly.

To those who are confused; my interpretation is that the poor girl knows puberty is in the pipeline. When you’re a little kid, there’s not much difference between boys and girls, and the parts that are different, you don’t really use anyway. The older you get, the farther apart boys and girls become. This body is just ever so slightly more masculine and less androgynous than the last one. So 3 years from now…

“You don’t REALLY have to do that to me, right?? You can make me taller and let me grow up without making me go through that, right??”

At least, that was my take.
