Fundamental Axis of Identity (Addendum to "Teatray, Prince of Bears")
I asked Aviva why it was that she identifies with Arthur, not D.W., even though D.W. is a girl about her age, and Arthur is an eight-year-old boy.
Aviva looked at me like I was crazy. "D.W. is the little sister -- Arthur is the big brother!"
Forget Age and Gender -- they're of middling if any relevance.
