Not as a shy little girl! (Jasmine)
And, no, I'm not sexist, Her dialouge which contains many, dot dot dot's which are a clear evidence of shyness, it could have been a guy and it still would be out place.
And you're saying this isn't sexist? You elaborate about how she's shy, yet you also felt the need to emphasize that she's a girl--and further, that she's a little girl. What was the point of that diminuitive, if not to marginalize her back she's female?
I'm not sure how someone who's shy can't also be determined. Talk to that annoying "yo champ to be" fellow--he mentions how her tenderness hides her strength from those who're blind enough to make surface judgments.
