My daughter is going as Darth Vader for Halloween. I'm going as Han Solo, my wife a Stormtrooper and my brother is going as Luke Skywalker. I'm going to try and get my brother and daughter to have a lightsaber battle and post it on social media. People have asked her if she wanted to be a princess to which she replies "No, I want to be Darth Vader".
Why is this even a question? It's a costume. Let her do as she likes.
1) The title of the thread is the title of the blog post. Maybe ask the guy who wrote it...
2) It's a rhetorical question. The person who originally asked it (the dad in the blog post) doesn't need your answer. It's merely a set up so he can answer it with his own story.

In the original theatrical release there was very clearly a reflexive jerk reaction to being shot. Its just really hard to aim when your chest is burning from a high energy plasma discharge that is shorting out your entire nervous system and making you twitch like a junky caught on a high voltage rail.

unlike most small girls, i wear a lot of my boyfriends hand me downs and wore them since we were in middle school. i still wear a lot of his old clothes 12 years later at the age of 25 years. i wear loligoth in public on formal meetings and friday dinners and i even had my boyfriend modify old boxers into pairs of bloomers for me with his ametuer tailoring skill, i wear a lot of male geek clothes as a small girl. i even wear handsewn clothing that looks like something you would find in the boys department, wearing a boy's 15 relaxed pant size, unlike most girls. which is like a large and a little before you transition into young adult garments.
@Te'Shen: No need to worry, I definitely pointing any fingers in your direction.
Heh, and don't worry, I can be a hypocrite at times too. Hell, I think we all can. I'm with you on the letting anger get the better of me situation even though my usual philosophy is that I should go with the flow. Trying a lot harder to stick to that ideal now... the walls here hurt to punch, I don't have anywhere to hang my heavy bag in apartment and hitting a pillow just isn't the same.
Back to the original topic. Cool costume, and I can respect the father wanting to blog about it, but I sometimes wonder why stories like this get so big. It just doesn't seem that big of a deal to me. Maybe because I was going to work in drag years ago (back in the retail days) with barely a raised eyebrow among management (in fact I got an award for having the best costume when a theme that required fancy clothing coincided with one of my urges to start putting on corsets and skirts), but my default reaction to a guy dressing up as a woman is "Cool, but probably not newsworthy"
Even though I live in an area that I think of as conservative, I have too many friends that have dressed up for Rocky Horror to feel that cross dressing is a thing. :)
That and Eddie Izzard amuses me.
