She was not normal, they said.
How will she fit in?
She is a tom-boy.
Grow up now, be more like a girl.
No, you cannot behave like that.
Why do you have so many boys around you all the time?
Dress up properly.
Study but only to a certain age lest you be one of the leftover women.
Get married already.
You do not want kids, well-you will change your mind.
Get married soon.
No, you cannot work at that hour.
Nope, stay at home.
Fine ,be back before sun down.
Why can you not be like a normal girls, who listens?
Every girl-nearly-goes through this.
Worse still, if you are a liberal with aspirations to push the envelope and live life to the fullest.
