Another Tag - My Sins Against Gender Stereotypes.

The Rules are

If you are a woman,
Have you ever wanted something that is considered ‘manly’ ? Like a basketball, a cell phone, a dog, a camera or a new laptop? A new car or motor bike? Ever wanted to be a pilot? A doctor or not a nurse? And the manliest want of them all – The remote! As a kid did you enjoy playing with a bat and a ball?
There was a time when books were considered ‘manly’, women authors had to pretend to be men – would you say books are still rather manly – women should want to embroider and crochet?

If you are a man,
Have you ever wanted something that only women are supposed to want – like bags, shoes, clothes, creams, perfumes, babies, flowers? A peaceful home and a happy family? Have you ever been afraid of the dark or of insects?As a kid did you ever want to play ‘teacher-teacher’, cooking or did you like playing with a doll? Have you ever enjoyed cooking? Bought something in pink? Loved chocolates?


Okay now,
  1. I like to go for shopping clothes. But I make my choices quickly, not like you girls.
  2. I used to be afraid of syringes. Recently had a blood test and my heart beat went straight up when I saw the needle in the docs hands.
  3. I love chocolate, chocolate cakes, :P
  4. I'm not afraid of dark but I do fear insects especially cockroaches and lizards.
  5. I can cook. Don't love it though but I like cooking.
  6. Babies, I like them untill they don't pee in my arms.
  7. As a kid I used to play 'langdi langdi' and 'tickker goti' with my sisters.
Thats all. Am I girly? I don't think so. YEah I can see that small smile on your face. Now DONT LAUGH.
