In a charming, understated scene in FF #6, Tong announces to her siblings that she identifies as a girl. "I have a girl inside me," she says to her siblings. "I tried to be a boy like you, but there is no boy here, and I do not wish to be a boy any longer." Her brothers gather around her, embracing her in a group hug of unconditional love and support.
