No, you can tell somebody's gender from very far away based on their body size, proportions, and how they walk/run.

there is nothing poetic in the 4 cardinals, but it has to do with the Chinese culture, as cardinals and center are associated with a color, an element (fire, water, wood, ground and metal) and other stuff

There is a women in US history that goes unnoticed an Africa-American women named Cathay Williams enlisted in the U.S. Regular Army under the false name of "William Cathay" on November 15, 1866. She enlisted for a three-year engagement, passing herself off as a man. Williams was assigned to the 38th U.S. Infantry Regiment after she passed the cursory medical examination. So Mulan might not be a real person but there was someone in American history a women who fought for her Freedom in the Civil War.

I always knew in the original story, no one discovered Mulan is a girl during the entire campaign. It was only after she went home and put on girl’s clothes, her fellow soldiers then realized it. Although I remember it was a 7-year war. She indeed was offered a high position after the war, but turned it down so she could go home to her family.

The inclusion of a dragon (Mushu or the "great stone dragon") in Mulan's legendary story definitely improved it.

Yes, the 4 different markets are to cover her tracks so no one asks why she's getting all these things, the *totality* being suspicious.

im suprised that there weren't any woman fighting with the hans, because a lot of tribes or whatever they are called are nomads and move around the country depending on the season and women woundn't just sit around, drink tea and make babies, they did a lot of work as well, farming, fighting in battle etc, so women weren't seen as objects like most countries back then. so if the movie was a bit more accurate then maybe some women would fight along side the hans.

TO LGBTQ people with all due respect. Mulan is a girl with a very strong heart. Who just shows that a woman can be as stronger as a man. Let's keep it that way to give strength to simple women working in a village
