1. The writer is a disabled woman, and I wonder what was meant by "Why wouldn't you want to fly?" ". Did it give her to the feeling that she is as capable as a normal man?
2. Isn't "to" of "make it to look like" a typo or a correct usage?
2)And I said, "Kids, if I want a pair of legs that I could use to jump over a house, and if you can make it to look like that of any animal, any superhero, or any cartoon character, what kind of legs would you build me?" And immediately a voice responded, "Kangaroo!" "No, no! It should be The Incredibles," shouted another kid. And then, one 8-year-old asked in all seriousness, "Why wouldn't you want to fly?" Everyone in the room, including me, broke into loud cheers and gave a big hand. At that moment, I realized that these kids saw me no longer as a "disabled" woman, but as someone whose body could do extraordinary things.
1. As for "Why wouldn't you want to fly?" ". I made a simple research for "The Incredibles", and it seems to mean "you can fly like the main character in the film".
2. Isn't "to" of "make it to look like" a typo or a correct usage? (It's fine)
I thought this is the same usage as "I made her go", an object complement, but here "make" seems like "produce or manafacture", right?
if you can make it to look like that of any animal, any
'Make' here means 'produce, fabricate, form'. "Produce it look like that of an animal" doesn't make sense, but "Produce it to look like that of an animal" does.
