I know this may sound like a weird scenario, but I know it's happening! I'm in my later teens and to name some of my hobbies/interests: I love cars ( especially 60's-70's American muscle cars) working on them, fixing them up, etc. I do Taxidermy and make my own fur pelts, I make Jewelry out of deer antler, love heavy metal, - haha I won't bother putting all the subgenres. And those are just a few of my hobbies/interests! Also, my personality is quite serious but I am super friendly to people I first meet. I like to wear manly darker colors, my homemade jewelry, lots of silver rings, leather bracelet, stud belt and my G shock. and in general I dress pretty tomboyish. And to add, I also workout a lot and lift weights. Anyways, when I tell my other guy friends / new guys I meet they almost seem put off or "intimidated". That's the only word I can think of to discribe it. So what are your thoughts? I mean, yeah when I'm talking to guys and I end up knowing more than them about cars or something I get how it might be weird. I don't know!

Guys brains probably trying to fit you into a label but can't so they are standoffish. A girl who knows more about manly stuff then me would be intimidating, not cause she actually is, because society has trained me that those things are manly not feminine, and I would feel emasculated around you.1
