Atypical Gender Hobby Preferences

Ever like/dislike something that most people of your gender don't?  How did it make you feel?  For instance,  I am a woman who is bored to tears by shopping unless it's for books and I'm kind of reluctant to admit it because my girlfriends were so shocked when I first told them.

I hate American football. I do like some other sports, but I just can't stand football. It's so boring.

Pride is not the opposite of shame, but its source.

I like this one weird shoujo anime where the main characters are both girls and everything has roses splattered all over it. It's kind of the center of my social life.

Girlish hobby I cannot have: Beauty products.

The longest conversation I had about beauty product was:
- I need an eyeliner. I want something long-lasting than costs less than X. Any tips?
Friends suggest me three products. I ask them are they liquid or not. I write down the name of one of them.

THE END. I don't know how to talk about beauty products. I know what I want, I look up online the forums, I read what I find and buy that thing. Then I use it. When it ends, I buy the same product, unless I hated it. I don't recall wanting to talk about it. I am completely indifferent to make-up trends.

Buying beauty products is as thrilling to me as going to the post office.

On the other hand, I like colorful and glimmering stuff, so we can talk about angora, jaquard, sequins and floral patterns. And fav colors. And look! I have lotus-like earrings. For about 30 minutes. Then I quietly look at them and am suspiciously happy because it sparkles. I prefer shopping online than offline, because I get overwhelmed by the number of stuff there, so I usually skim lookbooks online and then go shopping. Still, I enjoy more looking at pretty fashion pics than shopping.

Boyish hobby I have: I like science-fiction, I play Pokemon every time I'm stressed and I spent most of my childhood playing RPG.

I love light romance novels. Serious love, frequently indulged in while curled up in a big chair, drinking hot chocolate.

Re: Atypical Gender Hobby Preferences

I'm a female bodied who identifies as genderqueer which means I'm neither man nor woman

my hobbies are the follow

Takarazuka theatre: made by women for women 90% of the fanbase and audience is female, lots of lots of fluffy epic romances and sparkles and feathers

Formula one: I just adore motor sports and especially F1 I'm watching every race since 1998(?) very masculine fanbase

I learn the el. guitar: I find musical instruments to be totally unisex, but there is a trend that "el. guitar is for boysss" emot-mad

write and read fanfiction: lol that one is like 120% female activity AHAHAHAH

I play V-games: again I believe it's a unisex sport but there is the trend as well that "v-games are for boyssss" emot-mad

Re: Atypical Gender Hobby Preferences

I am female and I don't like shoes much. THE HORROR!!! According to girl mags I shouldn't exit!

I can find a shoe pretty to look at, but not to the point of having to have it. I have shoes for most occasions already, and I feel the urge to buy more when my own get ruined or when a special enough occasion appears.
(Of course when I'm drunk I want all those pretty cheap pumps on ebay that look so good on pretty asian models, but that's a different story).

I also find shopping tedious most of the time, especially for jeans. Ugh. Constantly pulling pairs on and off in cramped dressing rooms...

I like video games a lot, but that's not uncommon anymore. It was when I was a kid though, only other gamers I knew were boys, and older than me. It's where I got my passion for fine RPG's.
I also play MOBA, where it's still a good idea not to let anyone know you're female, unfortunately.

Re: Atypical Gender Hobby Preferences

Good one conversation topic. I might as well "out" myself as male. emot-smile I like romance manga. I love arts and crafts especially sewing and jewelry making. I'm also a big Winx Club fan.

Re: Atypical Gender Hobby Preferences

I'm female and ridiculously typical in terms of gender (which I'm very glad about since girly things seem much more fun to me). I am addicted to fanfiction (especially M/M slash!), fanvids and all things fandom. I love waisting time on numerous forums, I enjoy singing and horse riding. I'm quite apt with new languages. The list goes on.
What doesn't quite fit is my interest in science and especially physics, few other things.

a lot of hope in one man tent
