Pins N Ashes   ,  Sandhya  ,    Ritu  and Insignia  and Meghzzy  too tagged me on this tag called

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?

I have NO idea what to write but will try it out

1. I have played some of the girly games, and I have a perfect reason for that :), I had two sisters staying with me while they were studying in the city , younger then me so I had to play some games with them .. I dont remember the names of the games but it was like Stapoo ( a square with boxes , you throw a dice from 1 to 8 and with one leg jump across the boxes and stuff )

2. I love chocolates , I still do …

3. I love cooking, and weekends I do the cooking at home..

4. I do love to collect perfumes , I did not know it was a girly thing.. but since it is mentioned in the rules I take it …

5. I have a pink shirt.. But hold on before you have a smile .. I am sure a lot of buys wear them too, thats why someone made it and put it in the shop.. STOP THAT SMILE ….

6. My dad took a lot of decisions for me , he decided and I just did it …

7. I was darpok insaan when in school, Darpok in a sense I would hardly standup for myself, had been kept in a cotton wool by family I would usualy cry if a a teacher hit me or someone else did , I got a bullyed a lot in school. dont know if it falls in girly but definitely doesnot fall for MANLY.

8. The first cycle i learnt to ride was the ladies cycle with no handle bar. and I actually used it a lot …

9. I remmber well its on video my massi’s wedding and when her doli went i was crying like a baby 🙂

10. I did love the movie DDLJ and MPK .. oh yes well at least I am accepting it .. a lot of men wont 🙂 ha ha ha

11. I am so afraid of the syringe…

I guess thats enough point and now that all know about these things I am sure to get stick from all my male friends and the girls are definitely going ot take the micky out of me .. BUT PEOPLE I AM NOT THAT ANYMORE … MUHA HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAH 🙂

Who do i tag .. Well since i have come after this break , I have seen a lot of people have been tagged on this so i will tag a few who have not been ..
