So i'm a 18 year old , tall girl and i get a lot of crap for being into video games , watching wrestling. Not doing the typical thing like shopping and going to getting my nails done. I enjoy playing sports and just horsing around probably because growing up with brothers i was used to it but why do i get so much crap for not wanting to girly things?
Maybe you just don't know the right guys!! I like women that are being 'equals' and trying things that aren't 'girl things'!! Ever shot guns? That's my go-to with a woman that wants to be more than just a 'little girl'!! I LOVE it, when she says she wants to shoot something BIGGER than the little.22s I start her with!! As a woman, I think that YOU need to decide who you want to HEAR!! There will always be haters, or people of both genders saying you can't or shouldn't being a 'Lady'. What if being a 'Lady' is different now, at least to some of us guys? For me, a 'Lady' can shoot guns, and hit targets!! She can wear what she likes, and get dirty, maybe wanting to know how to change the oil in her car! She does what she wants, and likes, and doesn't care about the OLD social stigmas that are just past BS!! But she can also clean up, nicely, and wear a really elegant dress to a wedding, or some social event!! You are only bound by your fear of challenging the OLD NORMS!! They are fading, and now is when you can be everything you want to be!!
Who cares what others say or think? just be yourself, don't go changing to get guys or girls or friends or anyone. Be true to yourself and surround yourself with people that respect you for who you are and your individuality and eventually, the right person will come along and like you for you.
Because the people who give you crap for it feel like their past decisions are invalidated and their identity is being attacked by the fact that you weren't forced to do the same things they *felt* forced into.
Guys and girls are both competitive in their own way. If you make the guy feel lesser than you physically then he'd probably feel lesser about himself in general, this is him being insecure and naturally as a guy he'd feel the need to protect you and make you feel safe, whereas if you can beat him, what do you need him for?
calm down chica.. a lot of us guys LOVE girls like you and not the douchy types either. be your own goddamn self if you want to, if people can't see you for what you are, stop wasting your life with'em i say, they drag you down and turn you into something you don't wanna be so don't worry about shit.
Who cares? Most guys probably won't. I definitely wouldn't mind if a girl played games, sports I couldn't care less, don't watch any personally. If she acts like a tomboy personality wise and lets say has a ton of guy friends... Eh...
I actually believe the opposite; guys find it MORE difficult to like super "girly" women in today's day and age, probably because they don't connect to them at all. Take me for instance, my main hobbies are the stereo-typically feminine fashion and makeup. Whenever I'm attracted to a guy I notice he's more likely to have a thing for a girl who has more in common with him, such as enjoying sports. It makes it hard for people like me who have niche hobbies to connect with someone. Of course this is only my experience and I don't mean to invalidate yours, it's just that girls like you are perhaps more common than the "girly" ones where i'm from.
