I read this article on CNN with my morning tea and toast and thought to myself what's the big deal? Then again, I've always had males as friends and never thought any differently. I wasn't the average girly girl growing up, always the tomboy, always rolling around in the dirt. I couldn't get into the girly stuff of pink ribbons and frilly dresses (the thought still makes me shudder), so it seemed just natural to hang out with the boys instead. They liked all the things I did. Softball, soccer, climbing hills, climbing trees, pretending every nook and cranny in the park was the step to the next big adventure. Then of course there were those infamous "For a million dollars would you....." conversations. As I got older, I found like-wise female friends and have a pleasant blend of both.
I still don't wear pink and frills (I do however, own dresses and skirts now), my obsession with rolling in the dirt has now turned into a fascination with gadgets (still a guy thing for the most part), and I still like to hang out with the guys. Strangely enough I find some women just too high maintenance? I guess I could call that guy thinking too.
