43. I was always the anti-male, which earned me quite a bit of bullying

when I was a kid in grade school.

I've always disliked sports and enjoyed activities that are considered more "feminine" and it's true that other men/boys will use this as a hammer against your psyche.

Our culture teaches our little boys that they have to be stronger, faster, and tougher than everyone else. We're not really good at letting children be who they want to be.

Until this male-dominated culture changes, we're always going to have men who solve their problems with their fists, and women (and other men) who fear them.
