Comment: 	Re: SHK 17.0493 Seattle All-Female Hamlet

I, a girl, played a male, bloody, sword carrying Menteith - and scared 
the crap out of a bunch of insolent, high school boys. Also, over the 
years, I've found that casting young girls as old men works fairly well.

However, are we talking about the suspension needed to believe that 
characters believe girls are guys? Or was that just a rant?
