M: What is a stereotype?
Q: A stereotype is sort of like when people tell you one day that you can’t wear dresses or skirts if you’re a boy. It’s you can’t wear pants if you’re a girl sort of thing.
M: How do you feel when you’re wearing a dress?
Q: Pretty good. I don’t really know.
M: Does it feel different from when you wear shorts?
Q: Yes! Sort of.
M: How so?
Q: Because it’s longer than shorts.
M: How do other people feel when you are breaking a stereotype?
Q: Well, my best friend doesn’t so much feel angry with me. But some other people that I don’t know, they feel mad and sad about it.
M: Why do they feel mad and sad?
Q: Because they don’t want me to break the stereotype.
M: Why not?

Q: I don’t know.
