being a girl in a band

I have never felt that I’m a girl. I am of course a girl, and I’m frankly proud of it. I’m different from the boys and it has it’s pros and flaws. I’ve quit a band because I just didn’t fit with the moral. You must be one of the group and equal with the others – if not it will never work out. You can neither be better or worse than the others because then there will be complexes and trouble. Yes, boyish moral ? Then I must be a bit of a boy, although I find myself to be just girly enough.
