By Ashley R. Must I pretend that I am someone else for all time? When will my reflection show who I am inside? Mulan keeps her assigned gender a secret, knowing women are strictly forbidden from joining the Chinese army and for fear of being executed for the capital offense of impersonating a soldier. While Mulan never associates herself as transgender, her story symbolizes the emotional journey many transgender people experience through their transition, as expressed by Mulan in the song Reflection, in which she wishes her reflection would show who she is inside. While this film creates a positive image for the transgender community, it also extricates an underlying issue within the context of the law and the United States Military: the continued disparate treatment of transgender soldiers. Unfortunately for the estimated 15, active transgender service members, this mandate forces them to serve their country in secrecy, hiding their true reflections just as Mulan did.
