Steve, age 11
Victoria, BC, Canada (1974)
When playing games with other kids, I was usually given some type of female role.
If we played "Mission: Impossible," I was cast as Cinnamon Carter.
It was never forced upon me, or something pejorative, but rather a natural fit.
Years later, I got to meet Barbara Bain, the actress who portrayed Cinnamon, and I told her "You know, I used to play you" - and she roared with laughter.
