|This is the one. Both children love the|
scene where Elizabeth falls off the cliff
at the beginning.
There was also an argument twixt Boy and Girlie earlier in the day about who would play Elizabeth Swann in their game (Tilly introduced them to a heavily edited version of Pirates of the Carribean earlier in the month - first scene, then Jack Sparrow's arrival in Port Royal, optional sword-fight with Will Turner; then the ship chase scene 'til the Interceptor explodes, optional island scene 'til rescue and finally the last scene where, and I quote Girlie, "Jack Sparrow doesn't have his head cut off" until the credits - our children are addicted). The Boy was adamant that he was Elizabeth and Girlie was Sparrow or "Commadore" (Girlie thinks that's Norrington's first name).
Why is it okay for the Boy to behave like this but not me?
Or, more broadly, why does society seem happy to tolerate cross-dressing in boys that are very young (the Boy is just past two) but not adult males? (And I've made the distinction as loose as I can there, as ages for either differ wildly between different social groups)
