I've been wondering a bit about why, in a community where lots of people like to regress for various reasons, there are some of us who also like to put themselves in an LG role. When I thought about my reasons, I realized that a lot of them aren't fully founded on reality, but on other things.
For example, one reason being an LG appeals to me is because I have the idea that little girls can be very real with their emotions. They don't need to act strong or hide pain. But where did I get the idea? I'm not actually sure. I'm not sure I can think of a real-world example of a little girl doing this. In fact, I've seen lots of examples of kids wanting to act bigger or more mature than they really are. So it seems like my impressions of what it means to be little have come from other sources. Books, movies, or cultural traditions seem to be the foundation of my vision of what being an LG means.
Does anyone else find this? Where does your vision of what it means to be an LG come from? Do you think it's founded on reality? (It doesn't have to be...the fact that mine isn't doesn't change a thing ).
